Napoli turned in an impressive performance on the opening weekend of the 2022-23 Serie A campaign with a 5-2 win away at Verona.
Luciano Spalletti’s side brushed aside their hosts with a dominant performance at Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi and he will be looking to build on that on their return to home turf this weekend.
With Monza losing 2-1 at home to Torino in their Serie A bow, the home side are strong favourites to pick up all three points, and a victory will give them an early season advantage in the title race.
Five goals on the opening weekend underlines Napoli’s firepower and they will be looking to build on a strong return in front of goal in recent weeks.
Spalletti’s Napoli only failed to sore in one of their six preseason games with a total of 20 goals in five outings at an average of four goals per 90 minutes this summer.
Both sides were involved in games with over 2.5 goals scored in their opening games last weekend and that pattern is expected to continue in Naples.
Monza netted their first ever Serie A goal in Turin, despite losing out to Torino, and they will be confident of at least getting on the scoresheet in their trip to Naples, even if they cannot secure a positive result.
Napoli have outscored the majority of their opponents during preseason but they have also shipped goals throughout the last two months and should concede at least once.
A home win looks to be a strong banker in this game with Napoli looking to power their way into an early season Scudetto push.

Napoli team news
Spalletti has a fully fit squad available to him ahead of this game with no fresh injuries from the opening weekend. However, he could reshuffle his starting XI, with Elif Elmas and Matteo Politano potential coming back into the midfield unit.
Monza team news
Monza head coach Giovanni Stroppa is also expected to be at full strength for this tie, but his squad options are more limited than Spalletti. Despite losing at Torino last weekend, the visitors could go with an unchanged line up in Naples.
