Napoli AND Fiorentina

Match Date: 23 March 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio San Paolo


Napoli continued their undefeated 6-match streak as they nailed a narrow victory against Torino. Fiorentina, on the other hand, ended its 4-match winless assault with a 3-1 triumph over Chievo Verona.

While it is true that the Partenopei (Napoli) has a 10-point lead over the Violas (Fiorentina) and is considered as the match’s online betting favorite,  Rafael Benitez and his men cannot fully underestimate their opponent for they might come out with a shocking win.


The best that they can do is to remain on guard and take advantage of their home court advantage.


Napoli plays the strongest at home, Undefeated in their last 7 home matches, they are pegged to win at a decent 1.92 in 12BET. The problem however is in Fiorentina’s renewed confidence.


Fiorentina’s form in their last 6 matches is characterized by 2 wins, 3 losses and a lousy draw. But they cannot be immediately dismissed as the weaker side as they currently occupy the 4th spot of the table. Moreover, the club is simply desperate to secure points and move farther away from Inter, which threatens their spot.


It is therefore, possible for the match to end in an even stalemate, given how skillful both clubs are.  In 12BET, this betting option is valued at a profitable 4.05.


Prediction: Napoli
