A large number of matches will be played this Saturday in Serie A, one of them, the clash they will hold Napoli vs Crotone at the Diego Armando Maradona stadium, a duel in which the locals will try to add 3 to continue in their battle to get into the Champions League zone.
The Naples he managed to return to normality in terms of performance, achieving 3 consecutive victories in the domestic tournament before going to the national team break. These triumphs already have him located in the fifth position, which would give way to the UEFA Europa League.
However, the goal of Gattuso’s team will surely go more to get into the best competition at club level, an area of the table for which they only need 3 points and a puncture from Atalanta to be able to enter it. They have a great chance of achieving a victory in this appointment if we let ourselves be guided by the numbers that he has consumed at home, winning the 5 most recent appointments that he has disputed in his own field.
Faouzi Ghoulam and Diego Demme will be the sidelines for this injury clash. While Kalidou Koulibaly is left out due to accumulation of cards.
The Crotone It already seems to be condemned to decline at the end of the season because it still cannot leave the last position 8 points from salvation, a difference too loose for a club of this nature. In addition to that, he has lost 4 of the last 5 duels played in Serie A, too negative figures that do not stop at this data.
And it is that, as if that were not enough, the numbers against Napoli are really negative, since they have lost the 5 most recent matches they have had taking into account all the tournaments. This will make the trip to Naples really scary for the purple team who have flaws on all their lines of play.
The only good news for them is that only Jacopo Petriccione will miss out on this clash through injury. Of the rest, practically complete staff to face this commitment.
Lorenzo Insigne He is one of the best effective by the locals and his numbers prove it. The left winger has scored 13 goals and provided 6 assists so far in Serie A, numbers that may continue to increase against a “weak” rival like Crotone.
Simy he has been really spectacular with the Crotone this season. Despite being last in the table, the forward has been able to score 13 goals and provide 2 assists so far, figures that are more valuable due to the great limitations that he has in this group of players.
There is no basis for Crotone to think positively in the face of this match, the visitors have lost the 8 most recent duels they have had away from home, so it is not expected that they can face a Napoli that comes packed up his level after overcoming a bump that even left him out of the Europa League.
In addition to that, Napolés’s men have scored at least 2 goals in 5 of their last 6 matches, a trend that will surely continue to lengthen when facing a Crotone with deficiencies in defense.
Therefore, the homeowners are expected to get a single win on Saturday’s Serie A match.
Recommendation: Napoli. Asian Handicap -1.5, odds 1.76.
