Welcome to our Napoli vs Fiorentina preview, predictions and head to head analysis. Napoli are in 6th place in the league after a rather slow start to the season, which saw them lose their frst match of the season and draw the next two. They bounced back with a 5-0 thumping of Lazio, but were then held to a goalless draw at Carpi. Since then, however, they have gone on to record two impressive wins, beating Juventus 2-1 at home and then beating AC Milan 4-0 away from home. They will want to continue in that vein of form.

Fiorentina have been a revelation this season. Starting off with a win over AC Milan, they then slipped up at Torino. That has been their only slip up so far, and they have gone on to record 5 wins on the trot, over Genoa, Carpi, Bologna, Inter and Atalanta. They are now at the top of the league 2 points clear of Inter. With Inter facing a potentially difficult match against Juventus this weekend, Fiorentina would love to win this and pull possibly 5 points clear at the top.

Conclusion

This is quite a difficult match to predict. Napoli has quite a good record, with 5 wins and 3 draws and only 2 losses since the turn of the century at this fixture. But I am going to take a chance with Fiorentina, but suggest the draw as a very close second choice.
