SSC Napoli vs Empoli Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Napoli prevented a third consecutive league defeat in a crucial Derby del Sole with an injury-time equaliser. Carlo Ancelotti’s men were much better than the second half against their rivals, but the Italian team go in search of only their second win in three matches when they take on Empoli at the Stadio San Paolo. Aurelio Andreazzoli sees his team in the bottom three after only managing six points so far this season. It is now nine matches since Empoli last tasted success. Even without Napoli not being at their best, this match has the potential to end up as a victory for Napoli at both halves. Ancelotti’s men have been winning at half-time and full-time in four out of the last six games and I would not break this trend.

Dries Mertens came on as a substitute against Roma and helped win a point for Ancelotti’s men. He has been able to score a goal in each of his last four games for club and country. Lorenzo Insigne remains as Napoli’s top scorer with six league goals but he has scored just once in four games for club and country. I would opt for Dries Mertens to score anytime.

Napoli win at half-time and full-time – 8/11

Dries Mertens to score anytime – 4/6
