  • HOME: 3/5 (1.60) – 62.5%
  • DRAW: 27/10 (3.70) – 27%
  • AWAY: 5/1 (6.00) – 16.7%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Napoli have been blowing hot and cold at home this season and have won less than half of their 11 games in Naples. Genoa have lost only once in nine games and should provide a test.

Player to watch – Khvicha Kvaratskhelia

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia was a superstar for Napoli during their title-winning campaign last year, though the Georgian has only been showing his quality in flashes this term and he will be determined to shine on Saturday.

Kvaratskhelia to make his mark?

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia hasn’t scored against Genoa before, though the 23-year-old has notched six goals in the league this season and he has enough quality to be considered as a viable Serie A first goal scorer candidate.
