Match start: 20:30 (GMT+1)
Tournament: Serie A
Napoli has spent the last game on Sunday against Roma in Naples. On the 14th minute of the match the Wolves have opened the score and it seemed the game would end in victory. Dries Mertenswho has restored equality (1:1) hasn’t allowed Romans to win three points.
Having lost points in a match with Roma, Napoli has allowed Inter Milan to be ahead by additional factors. Besides, the leader Juventus has increased a gap up to six points. Advantage over the fourth position (Lazio) is comfortable – four points.
In five home matches of the Serie A-2018/19 Neapolitans have made only one mistake. Milan, Fiorentina, Parma and Sassuolo have lost on Stadio San Paolo.
The Blues in the previous round hosted Juventus on home arena. On the 28th minute of the match Francesco Caputo has opened the score but Cristiano Ronaldo has at first restored equality, and then has brought to the residents of Turin three points – 1:2.
The gaming form of Empoli leaves much to be desired. From 10 matches Aurelio Andreazzoli ‘s team has won only one match and suffered six defeats and a ratio of the scored and missed goals is 9:15. They are on the 18th position with a lag from a saving 17th line with three points.
The Blues couldn’t win points during home matches with Genoa, Sassuolo and Parma. They have managed to tie the matches with Chievo and Frosinone – two worst teams of Serie A.

Bookmaker coefficients on the match Napoli vs Empoli
Napoli to win – 1.27
Draw – 6.60;
Empoli to win – 12.50
Results of Andreazzoli’s team leave much to be desired. Considering that in the current season Napoli at home couldn’t win over only Roma, we think that they will manage to gain confident or even large victory over one of the weakest teams of national championship.
