Napoli was competitive for a long time last season in the fight for the title, but in the end, they faltered. They lost a large number of points in “small” games, so it seems they decided to change that this season.
They defeated Verona 5:2 in the first round and announced a very exciting season. However, for a more specific result, they will have to be much more engaged in defense. Last season, they conceded only 16 goals in 19 matches at home, so it is evident that their stadium is a real “fortress”. We hope it will be like that this time as well.
The new participant of Serie A did not open the competition in the right way this season. In the first round, Monza was defeated 2:1 against Torino, and they scored that goal only in the 94th minute.
We can’t say that Monza football players left an overly great impression on us. However, it is a team that has spent many years in the lower ranks of Italian football, and it is not realistic to expect that they can immediately make a result.
Considering that they have a modest offensive potential, we expect them to be focused on the defensive segment of the game this season.
These two teams played their last duel more than 20 years ago, so the results of the duels are not too important.
Injuries and suspensions
Napoli: Demme, Gaetano and Zedadka.
The home field was one of Napoli’s strongest weapons last season. They played really well at home, conceding only 16 goals.
If they want to be competitive in the fight for the title, they will have to repeat that success this season.
Monza is a team with a very modest playing staff, and we expect Napoli to justify the epithet of big favorites without any major problems.
Prediction: BTTS – NO
