Torino vs Napoli for the Italian Serie A championship match on Sunday at Olympic Grande Torino Stadium.
This Sunday Torino will host Napoli at the Turin Olympic Stadium, this match is valid for the seventh round of the Italian championship.
Torino visited Parma in the last round of the Italian league and was defeated by the score 3 to 2. With this result, the Turin team reaches its third defeat in 6 games.
In the standings Torino is in eighth place with 9 points won, 10 goals scored and 10 goals conceded.
In this early season, Torino has been inconsistent.
It is a team that demonstrates quality with possession, but has failed in the defensive system in most games, creating some difficulties to the squad.
Napoli went to Belgium to face Genk last Wednesday in a Champions League game, and it was only 0-0. The Italian performance was not the best, and so the result was fair.
For the Italian championship Napoli beat Brescia 2-1 in the last round, reaching 12 points, 15 goals scored and 10 goals conceded, currently occupying the fourth place.
Napoli demonstrates excellent technical quality in their football, have a refined ball touch and good players with good individual attributes.
The downside of the Napolitans has been the defensive system that has already conceded 10 goals in 6 games, something that was not usual in past seasons.
My prediction for this match is Napoli’s victory.
I expect a balanced game with opportunities on both sides, even for the quality demonstrated so far. But I see Napoli with superior technical ability and a stronger collective.
It has players with excellent decision-making power, and it has to win to try to get closer to the leaders, and if we look back at both teams match history, it’s very favourable for Napoli in recent years.
