Salernitana vs. Napoli Predictions & Betting Tips

Can the league leaders carry on from last weekend’s incredible result, that thrashing of Juventus? These Salernitana vs. Napoli predictions suggest they can. But the home side will be under instruction from a new coach and will look to spring a surprise or two in this Campanian derby.

Salernitana vs. Napoli odds

1 – Napoli to win – 3/10

2 – Under 2.5 goals scored – 8/15

3 – Both teams not to score – 4/5

4 – 0-3 full time score  – 15/2

5 – Khvicha Kvaratskhelia to score at anytime – 8/5

The Salernitana owners said it was just the latest disagreement between them and the coach, but the humiliating 8-2 defeat to Atalanta last weekend can’t have helped Davide Nicola’s case to stay on, so the Granata will line-up under a new trainer on Saturday.

Whoever that ends up being, they will not be grateful to face a rampant Napoli in their first game. Salernitana had been playing relatively well up until the World Cup break. But there have now been just two points won from the last six games – with 11 goals conceded since the restart.

Realistically, the home side will be on a damage limitation exercise, meaning a defensive display should be expected. But even that may not be enough to contain a Napoli team sensing blood.

If there were any questions surrounding Napoli’s league title credentials this season, they were blown away as easily as the Juventus defence last week. Handing out a 5-1 thrashing to a side that had begun to look dangerous again was a bold statement directed at the rest of Serie A.

They now have by far the best attacking record in the league, with only Juventus conceding fewer goals. A bet on Napoli to win by quite a margin and/or to keep another clean sheet is probably a good idea for Saturday’s game.

Luciano Spalletti’s team could go 12 points clear with a win here, as they kick off the Serie A action this weekend. There should be more goals at the Stadio Arechi and Georgian sensation Khvicha Kvaratskhelia could well be among them.

Salernitana team news

The new boss will probably want to make a raft of changes from the side thrashed by Atalanta. But it’s difficult to see who he could bring in to good effect. Federico Bonnazzoli might get the nod up front but there are a number of injuries to important players that will hinder any chance of success this weekend.

Napoli team news

With Spalletti able to rest key players for the Coppa Italia tie against Cremonese in the week, he should have his best players at their peak for the short trip to Salerno on Saturday. The confidence is so high in the squad right now that the starting XI just about picks itself.
