Coppa Italia

Quarterfinal

24.01.2017

Bet: Both Teams to Score

According to the betting experts’ observations Napoli have been demonstrating an impressive football since the beginning of December. After the slumps in the results in October and November, the Partenopei gained 6 victories and a draw in the Serie A matches and a win in the Coppa Italia. Their winning streak allowed them to hold the third position in the Serie A table. As for the Cup performance, at the previous stage the betting companies have fairly considered Sarri’s side to be an unquestionable overdog – the Neapolitans have easily overcome Spezia (3-1).

The betting experts expected Fiorentina to be among the Serie A leaders or at least in the top-6 after the first half of the season. However, Souza’s team have been quite inconsistent, especially away from home. Thus, the Florentines sit now on the 8th position – 15 points behind the leader. Although, they are not involved in the title race, they are still dangerous at home, where they have recently overcome Juventus. Apart from that, Fiorentina have beaten Chievo (1-0) in the round of 16 of the Coppa Italia.

While choosing a bet you should take into account the fact that Napoli have won 3 out of the last 4 head-to-head encounters at Stadio San Paolo. Nevertheless, this season’s meeting in Florence ended with a frantic 3-3 draw. Despite Napoli’s lack of forwards, they still score a lot. Mertens has stepped up as a false nine up front. Insigne and Callejon also contribute in the attacking phase of the game. At the same time Napoli’s defense is far from being perfect with 24 goals conceded. The betting experts remind that Fiorentina are also weak in defending allowing 25 goals.

The bookmakers give preference to the home side: Napoli – 1,65, Draw – 3,90, Fiorentina – 5,25. Since both teams have a good attacking potential it is recommended to bet on “Both Teams to Score” (1,74). Besides, you can bet on “Total Goals by Home Team over 1,5” (1,63). Apart from that, there is a good option “Double Chance: Napoli or Draw and Total Goals over 2,5” (2,08).
