|Napoli win 1.20||Draw 7.50||Empoli win 11.00|
Napoli is in great shape and clearly expects to win the title – today the hosts will strive to extend the winning streak.
It should not be difficult for the owners to achieve their goal – Empoli is extremely unstable and has scored only one victory in six away matches of the current season, and the difference in class between the rivals is too great.
Prediction for this match: Total over 3 goals.
- Handicap (-2) goals at Napoli.
