Napoli to Win and Over 2.5 Match Goals

Reason for tip

Napoli have won 13 of their last 14 league games, while five of their last seven wins have contained over 2.5 goals. Salernitana, meanwhile, have failed to win any of their last six games, losing four and conceding 18 goals, while no Serie A team has shipped more than their total of 35 goals against this term.

8/11odds when tipped

Napoli 4-0

Reason for tip

Napoli have scored more goals (44) than any other side in Serie A this season, as well as hitting more goals on the road (18) than any other Italian top-flight team. Salernitana lost their last game 8-2 before firing and rehiring their coach, and they look likely to endure a tough outing.

Salernitana vs Napoli Predictions

  • Leaders Napoli have the most away points (22) and goals (18) in Serie A this season, losing just once on the road.
  • Salernitana lost 8-2 at Atalanta last time out, and their tally of 35 goals conceded this season is the most in Serie A.
  • Napoli have seen over 2.5 goals scored in five of their last seven wins.

Partenopei focus sights on Scudetto

Napoli’s bid for a first league title since the Diego Maradona era was boosted by their comprehensive 5-1 thrashing of rivals Juventus, and Tuesday’s Coppa Italia exit against struggling Cremonese, while undoubtedly a setback, may focus the Partenopei’s minds on a Scudetto race they are now clear favourites to win. On Saturday, Napoli travel to a Salernitana side reeling from a bizarre week in which they were hit for eight and sacked – and rehired – their head coach.

Napoli’s midweek penalty shoot-out defeat to Cremonese came as Luciano Spalletti rested several key players, and a side with 13 wins in their last 14 league games will be confident of bouncing back. Napoli’s away form this season has been spectacular, with the Partenopei scoring more goals (18) and winning more points (22) than any other Italian top-flight team on the road, while five of their last seven victories have contained over 2.5 goals – when they win, they tend to win well.

Salernitana could hardly have endured a worse week of preparation ahead of facing the rampant title favourites. Having succumbed to a crushing 8-2 defeat at Atalanta, they parted company with boss Davide Nicola, only to reinstate him two days later following a passionate plea to president Danilo Iervolino. Salernitana have failed to win any of their last six games, losing four and conceding 18 goals, while no Serie A team has shipped more than their total of 35 goals against this term.

Napoli to hit the goal trail

With Salernitana reeling from a bizarre few days and Napoli undoubtedly keen to atone for their cup exit – even if a plethora of changes will be made from Tuesday’s team, backing the visitors to win a game containing over 2.5 goals looks a value play for Saturday.

Meanwhile, with Napoli hitting 44 goals in their first 18 games of the league season, they could do some real damage to an out-of-shape Salernitana defence. 4-0 to the visitors could offer value for correct score punters.
