The San Paolo stadium in Naples will host this Sunday, January 28, the match involving Napoli and Bologna. With kick-off scheduled for 12h (Brasília time), the game is part of the schedule of the twenty-second round of the Italian Championship in its 2017/2018 edition.
The recent performance of Napoli
The Neapolitans are fighting a head-to-head battle for the title with Juventus. It is even possible that they enter the field in second place, since the alvinegro had his match of day 22, against Chievo, scheduled for Saturday.
Before the ball rolled in the round, Napoli, with 54 points (17 wins, three draws and a loss), had a point ahead in comparison with the team of Turin. Advantage gained thanks to your performance as a visitor. In 11 games in this situation, the South Italy team had 31 points while Juventus, in ten matches, accumulated 25.
The enthusiastic Neapolitan fans have been disappointed in San Paolo. Not only have the club been knocked out of their Italian Cup opener by losing Atalanta (2-1), but they are only the top four contenders in Serie A with 23 points (seven wins, two draws and one defeat). 30 played.
To try to improve this performance, coach Maurizio Sarri had the week off for training and can count on almost all his cast. Only the defender Faouzi Ghoulam (11 matches in the 2017/2018 Italian League, two goals) and striker Arkadiusz Milik (three matches, one goal) are in the medical department.
The current form of Bologna
The Bologna team says they have entered the “vacation mode”. Without great pretensions in the Italian Championship, it oscillates a lot. In the last ten games, it was five losses, four losses and only one draw.
He has 27 points (eight wins, three draws and ten losses). It’s in the twelfth position. They are seven points less than Sampdoria, sixth place, which closes the zone of classification for European tournaments, and 11 more than the Spal, eighteenth and first place in the region of the sticking.
History of the bouts between Napoli and Bologna
Napoli won the last four matches against Bologna. The most recent was in the first round of the Italian Championship 2017/2018 and finished with the score of 3 to 0.
As much as Napoli stumble in their dominions throughout the season, the match against the fragile Bologna does not open much space for risk guesses in the confrontation of the twenty-second round of the Italian Championship.
The option for the Neapolitans when making the bet is the best choice. The owners of the house appear with a prize of 1.16 in Bet365. Draw has a price of 7.00. Bologna are considered the biggest underdog in the round. If you return home with three more points in your luggage you will be promising to pay 15.00 for each real bet on that possibility.
