Today's Predictions for Spezia vs Napoli

Napoli can take another step closer to the Serie A title with a victory over Spezia in Sunday’s top flight showdown. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Napoli to Win to Nil

Napoli passed another test of their title credentials last weekend when they beat Roma 2-1 and the Partenopei should be able to win for the 18th time in 21 Serie A fixtures when they travel to take on Spezia on Sunday. Napoli have beaten Spezia to nil in each of the clubs’ last two encounters and another clean sheet should see them over the line again this weekend. Spezia have scored just once in their last four league assignments and our first prediction tips Napoli to take full advantage of their host’s lack of dynamism in the final third.

Under 2.5 Goals

Luciano Spalletti’s Napoli are one of European football’s most dazzling attacking teams, though they might find it tough to run up a big score against a dogged Spezia outfit on Sunday. When the teams last met back in September, they were separated by a single 89th-minute goal from Giacomo Raspadori, and that was the second time in the last three meetings between the sides where the net rattled just once. 100% of Spezia’s last four Serie A tests featured under 2.5 goals and we’re tipping Sunday’s clash to follow suit.

Spezia vs Napoli Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Sunday’s Serie A meeting between Spezia and Napoli below.

Spezia

Keeper Jeroen Zoet is out for Spezia as are midfielders Viktor Kovalenko, Szymon Zurkowski, Simone Bastoni and Jeroen Zoet. Spezia have lost each of their last two Serie A fixtures 2-0 to Bologna and Roma respectively. There is still a five-point buffer between them and the drop zone, however.

Predicted Lineup for Spezia: Dragowski – Amian, Caldara, Nikolaou – Holm, Ampadu, Bourabia, Reca, Maldini – Agudelo, Gyasi

Napoli

Napoli have an empty treatment room and a clean bill of health again ahead of the weekend, so little in the way of rotation is expected or indeed required for Sunday. Napoli scored late on to beat Roma 2-1 in their last outing and they are currently 13 points clear at the summit of the table.

Predicted Lineup for Napoli: Meret – Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Min-Jae, Rui – Anguissa, Lobotka, Zielinski – Lozano, Kvaratskhelia, Osimhen

Player to Watch – Piotr Zielinski

Polish schemer Piotr Zielinski is a class act and the cultured midfielder was arguably the best player on the pitch when Napoli beat Roma 2-1 last weekend. The 28-year-old finished the game with an assist and Zielinski has now chipped in with nine goal contributions in just 15 Serie A starts overall this term.
