Spal vs Napoli: Match preview
As things stand now, SPAL will be fighting a grueling fight for survival this season until literally the last round. Namely, this team is currently only 18th on the table. This unfortunately at the end of the championship means moving to Serie B. This is something that fans of this team would not want to happen.
In the last round, SPAL played a rather bad match as they were defeated by Cagliari, Before that, SPAL played a pretty good match and defeated Parma on its ground which was only the second victory for this team.
They are hosting Napoli, who has been playing changeable in Serie A this season, but in the Champions League they have some fantastic games. The best result is the recent away win at Salzburg, which allowed Karl Ancelotti’s team to extend their stay in first place. As for Serie A, at the moment, Napoli is in fourth place in the table and in the last round they beat Verona with 2: 0 in their field without major problems.
SPAL team news:
SPAL is a big disappointment this season with performances and results. It was expected to make further progress after last year’s calm path to securing a stay in Seria A. In the opening eight games of the new season, SPAL scored only six points as it recorded as many as six defeats. There were only two minimal home victories against Lazio and Parma.
Despite the poor results there is no talk of the possibility of dismissing Semplici. Still, it is clear that he is under pressure to achieve good results in the upcoming games. This is not easy, because immediately after meeting Napoli his team is playing against Milan.
Fares, D’Alessandro and Di Francesco are injured, so it is likely Petagna and Floccari to play from the first minute.
Probable lineup: Berisha, Tomović, Vicari, Igor, Strefezza, Missiroli, Valdifiori, Kurtič, Reca, Floccari, Petagna
Napoli team news:
Yesterday’s unexpected wreckage of Juventus and Inter is allowing Napoli to reduce the scoring gap for championship standings. After Napoli played scoreless games against Genk in the Champions League and Torino in the Championship, Napoli won in last week’s games with Verona and Salzburg.
With the victory in Austria, Napoli has taken a huge step towards qualifying for the next round. Now Napoli must show that they are ready to fight for the much-desired Italian title by the end of the season.
Guests have been having issues with the defensive line for some time. Ancelotti cannot count on Hysai, Ghoulam, Maksimovic, Manolas and Maria Rui for this match. Given the absences, it is clear that Malcuit and Di Lorenzowill start. In the center of the defensive line we’ll have Koulibaly and Luperto.
The impression is that Napoli should finally have one win on the side, and the ideal opportunity for this will be a visit to SPAL. SPAL is playing awfully so it should not be a problem to defeat them.
