Tip Reasoning

  • Empoli are winless in 17 matches, a run stretching back to mid-December.
  • Napoli are unbeaten in nine away Serie A games, winning their last three in succession.
  • Luciano Spalletti’s team have seen both teams score in 10 of their last 11 matches, and in each of their last five.

Last chance saloon for Napoli’s title bid after Giallorossi draw

A last-gasp equaliser from Roma’s Stephan El Shaarawy broke Napoli hearts last weekend, with Lorenzo Insigne collapsing to the turf in tears after the 1-1 draw as the Partenopei’s Scudetto dreams fade. Napoli are now four points behind leaders Milan with just five games to play, and will need to win all of their matches and receive some huge favours from elsewhere to win a first title since 1990.

Napoli have now gone two Serie A games without a win, although both of those results came at home, where the pressure of winning a first Scudetto since the Diego Maradona era seems to have gotten to Spalletti’s men. On their travels, Napoli are unbeaten in nine league matches, winning the last three of those against particularly tough opponents in Lazio, Verona, and Atalanta.

Empoli, meanwhile, are waiting for the season to end after their winless run was stretched to a remarkable 17 matches by a 4-1 loss to Udinese last time out. Aurelio Andreazzoli’s men actually beat Napoli in December, but they have not tasted victory in Serie A since that day and don’t look likely to complete a remarkable double on Sunday.

Back Partenopei to claim important win, but visitors could land a blow

Napoli’s superb away record, coupled with the dreadful run of Empoli, means backing the visitors looks a sensible play, regardless of their recent wobbles. However, to secure additional value, punters should add both teams to score into the mix; Napoli have seen goals at both ends in 10 of their last 11 games, and in each of their most recent five.

Empoli’s 16 home games, meanwhile, have seen them score 23 goals and concede a massive 38 (comfortably the highest tally in Serie A). An entertaining 3-1 win for Napoli looks a good correct score prediction, and may be enough to keep their title bid intact.
