SPAL 2013 vs SSC Napoli Match Prediction

By William Hall

Perfect starters Napoli travel to the Stadio Paolo Mazza this weekend as they take on struggling SPAL in the Bundesliga. After a solid start for SPAL, they have dropped off massively losing three on the bounce, all being by a 2-0 scoreline. Napoli, on the other hand, have been on fire, winning their first five games. In this run, they have beaten some tough teams including Lazio and Atalanta. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

For me, there is only going to be one winner this weekend. With the form both sides are on, it is evident who will go into the game with the confidence. In every game Napoli have played so far this season, they have been able to smash the -1 goal handicap result market, and I fully expect them to do it again this weekend. These two haven't played each other since the 2004/06 season meaning head to head stats are unnecessary. With the attacking threats that Napoli have, I can't see them not having a field day against a SPAL defence who have been struggling to keep opponents out of their goal.

Although SPAL had a good start to the season, they have dropped off massively, and with defeats to Inter Milan, Cagliari and AC Milan, they do look in a bit of bother. A win in this game would be unreal for the side, but I don't think anyone can see it happening.

SPAL 2013 Preview

Spal would have been buzzing with how the opening two games went, drawing 0-0 at Lazio before beating Udinese on home soil. However, since then things have got worse and worse with three straight defeats, conceding six goals and scoring none. It is a run they will want to end as soon as possible, but with the visit of Napoli on the horizon, things could get even worse this weekend. The worrying thing for SPAL this season is where the goals are going to come from. They haven't got anyone in their squad who is a known striker in the Italian top flight which makes it hard to win matches. However, if they can beat the teams around then, games like this won't matter as much.

SPAL 2013 Team News

SPAL have four players out this weekend with Marios (thigh injury), Alex Meret (groin injury), Luca Rizzo (unknown) and Sergio Floccari (unknown) all sidelined.

SSC Napoli Preview

Napoli just don't look like losing at the moment, winning five out of five, scoring 19, conceding 3 and playing with a swagger. This has left them top of Serie A, joint with Juventus but leading on goal difference. It's Dries Mertens who is at the centre of this current run of form with the Belgium international scoring six goals in just five matches. He has formed a solid partnership with Spanish forward Jose Callejon who has hit the back of the net three times. These two along with the rest of the squad are making it almost impossible for opponents to stop them scoring which is winning them games, and comfortably.

Napoli will go into this one with no injuries or suspensions.
