Place: Stadio Olimpico.
Date: on the 23rd of September, 2018 (Sunday)
Match start: 11:30 (GMT+1)
Tournament: Serie A.
The team of Walter Mazzarri who was earlier the coach of Napoli in the first four rounds has scored 5 points. But we have to admit the level of the rivals.
The Bull has lost (0:1) to Roma on last seconds, with Inter (22) have played a prestigious draw and then were the minimum victory over SPAL (1:0) and the draw outcome with Udinese (1:0). Bearing in mind that that the team from Turin shot only 11,8 kicks for a match on average and are good in the air (20,8), the result of one goal for a match on average doesn’t seem to be very weak.
The match with Napoli will be missed due to the injuries by full backs Christian Ansaldi and Lyanco. In general it should be noted that the squad of Torino has undergone considerable changes last shoulder period that too can’t but exert impact on the quality of a game in the first rounds.
Carlo Ancelotti’s team has disappointed with the game and result in Belgrade, hasn’t managed to score the goal to the modest team – Crvena zvezda (0:0). Thus, dangerous rivals such as Liverpool and PSG have received some advantage from the first round.
The quality of the game of Napoli in the Champions League was quite good. But there was a lack in the finishing shot with which the rival’s goalkeeper wouldn’t cope. Arkadiusz Milik having played on the attack edge has shot four kicks and has twice got on target. But Lorenzo Insigne was even closer to scoring the goal.
Brazilian Allan has made 82 assists from which 76 were exact (93%). But only one assist of the midfielder has occurred a final third of the field. Allan didn’t make any key assists at all, as well as most of the partners in a midfield.
In five out of six last meetings Neapolitans were gaining the victory over the club № 2 from Turin. In spring 2018 the teams have played 2:2 on São Paulo in a match of the 36th round which has finally destroyed the hopes of Naples for a title.
Bookmaker coefficients on the match Torino vs. Napoli
Torino to win – 4.30
Draw – 3.80
Napoli – 1.84
The guests need only slight changes in order to turn a toothless game in Belgrade into the best models of the attack of last season. We consider that Ancelotti is able to cope with this task, especially against the background of the rival that isn’t very experienced in counterattacks. So we bet on Napoli and we consider that the club is able to pass the minimum handicap.
