Livorno

A defeat to Hellas Verona caused Livorno to drop in the relegation zone and struggle for survival. Despite Domenico Di Carlo’s high expectations that his side will show their “hunger” for winning, the boys failed to live with their head honcho’s expectations. Nevertheless, one has to appreciate the late rally they showed during the match. It somehow threatened the dominance of their opponent.

 

The Amarantos showcase a decent form. During their last six (6) matches, they have managed to win twice. But they have to deal with three (3) losses and a draw. They may not be the overt favorite in the match, but a 3.87 draw presents a quite lucrative amount knowing that Napoli had its taste of a disappointing even steven finish against Genoa.

 

There is still no news if Luca Siligardi and Cristiano Piccini will make it to the match against Napoli as both are still nursing an injury.

 

Napoli

With the 1-1 stalemate against Genoa, Rafael Benitez shifts his focus to Swansea and Livorno. The club’s head honcho stressed that they could not afford to “repeat the mistakes” of their previous match if they want to enter the Champions League again next season.

 

It can be remembered that in their previous match, Napoli’s Gonzalo Higuain took an early lead for the club. Unfortunately, the squad’s on loan player, Emanuele Calaiao nailed the equalizer, much to the disappointment of many. But of course, the draw did have an effect to the club’s campaign. Such result left them trailing AS Roma by six (6) points.

 

Prediction: Napoli

The Partenopeis have been successful in eleven (11) of their last twelve (12) matches. Such figure alone foretells that Benitez and his men have indeed, no reasons to repeat their previous errors in the match against the struggling Livorno.
