*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Fiorentina (8th) are just one place and two points ahead of Napoli (9th) ahead of the teams’ tussle in Florence on Friday evening, though La Viola have been priced as 27/20 favourites to win by the bookies for a good reason.

The visitors have won only once in their last nine attempts in Serie A, while Fiorentina emerged with maximum points from three of their last four games in the division. Form is with the more confident hosts here and our top betting tips have backed Fiorentina to pile on more misery for the former champions.

Napoli eased to a 3-0 win over Fiorentina when the teams last met in January in Naples, though La Viola came out on top in three of the five meetings between the clubs before that.

Fiorentina preview: Hosts at close to full strength

Riccardo Sottil is listed as Fiorentina's only injury concern at present and manager Vincenzo Italiano should be able to name the crux of the XI that came from behind to beat Monza 2-1 last time out.

Predicted lineup: Terracciano – Kayode, Martinez Quarta, Milenkovic, Parisi – Mandragora, Arthur, Gonzalez, Barak, Castrovilli – M'Bala Nzola

Napoli preview: Zielinski a key absentee

Mario Rui and Piotr Zielinski will sit out Friday's game through injury. The Partenopei's dramatic fall from grace continued last weekend when they were comfortably beaten 2-0 by highflying Bologna.

Player to watch – Nicolás González

Nicolás González pounced to score one of Fiorentina’s two goals against Monza in La Viola’s 2-1 victory over their opponents last weekend and the winger’s effort pushed him into double figures for the Serie A campaign.

González to sparkle again?

26-year-old González, who has been linked with a move to the Premier League before, has found the net four times in his last four appearances at the Stadio Artemio Franchi for his club and his knack for scoring in Florence makes him a dangerous prospect for Napoli on Friday.
