Unbeaten in their last five games in Serie A, Napoli will be looking to keep up their good form when they host Genoa at the Stadio San Paolo in the 24th round of the Italian top flight.
Napoli Looking To Keep The Pressure On Juve
With 9 points separating them from the top spot , the hosts have no room for error till the rest of the season. They have been very solid in recent games, winning four out of their last five Serie A fixtures. Napoli have collected a total of 13 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Serie A. Their last league match was against Bologna away from home where they won 7-1.
Napoli are currently sitting in the 3rd place in the league table. They have 48 points from 14 wins, 6 draws and 3 losses. The team scored 55 goals and conceded 26 since the start of the season.
Maurizio Sarri will not be able to call upon suspended duo Elseid Hysaj and Jose Callejon for this match. With Callejon out and Arkadiusz Milik not ready to start, Leonardo Pavoletti will be given his full league debut with Napoli.
The Visitors Are In Trouble
The visitors are on the contrary of the hosts having a very poor spill in recent weeks. The team have failed to win in any of their last five league games, losing three and drawing in two. Genoa have collected a total of 2 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Serie A. Their last league match was against Sassuolo at home where they lost 1-0.
Genoa are currently sitting in the 16th place in the league table. They have 25 points from 6 wins, 7 draws and 10 losses. They have scored 27 goals and conceded 33 since the start of the season.
Raffaele Palladino seems to be ahead of Mauricio Pinilla in the pecking order to start up front with Giovanni Simeone. A new-look front line will allow Luca Rigoni to play in midfield after spending the first half of the season in the trequartista role.
Head To Head
Napoli have won 3 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in September 2016 when the final score was 0-0 in the reverse fixture.
