Napoli- Week 13

Empoli vs. Atalanta

 

Match Date: 30 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Carlo Castellani

 

Empoli

Empoli’s consecutive wins helped them veer away from the relegation zone. This should bring them the confidence and morale boost in their upcoming match. They can pull off a draw or a stunning win, but rest assured that it will not be an easy one.

 

Atalanta

Atalanta has been winless in its last five (5) matches and has only accumulated three (3) points. However, they can readily use their experience to outlast the hopeful host. They should exploit this opportunity to get out of the 17th spot and lessen the possibility of losing its Serie A status next season.

 

Prediction

Empoli 0-2 Atalanta

 

***

Sampdoria vs. Napoli

 

Match Date: 01 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Atleti Azzurri  d’ Italia

 

Sampdoria

It was quite frustrating to see Sampdoria settle for a draw against the lowly Cesena. La Samp is superior in all aspects, but they weren’t able to translate it into the pitch. Despite the even steven finish, the squad remains strongly positioned in the 4th spot of the league table.

 

Napoli

Napoli is currently under fire for its (lackluster) performance against Sparta Prague. The Italian outfit can only afford a scoreless stalemate instead of dominating the match. With a disappointing result, the Partenopei lost the appeal of being the strong online betting favorite against La Samp.

 

Prediction

Sampdoria 1-1 Napoli
