Napoli vs Fiorentina

Napoli will be aiming to take advantage of the goalless draw between Juventus and Inter Milan on Saturday, and can return to the top of the table with a win.

Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri confessed his team had "lost something" in their attack, as the fatigue of sticking with the same forwards have inevitably took its toll.

They come into this clash off two consecutive defeats, which saw them lose their unbeaten Serie A record and top spot in a setback to old rivals Juventus and crash out of the Champions League. Another loss here and they could drop out of the top two.

Napoli ace Lorenzo Insigne is nursing a groin strain and remains in doubt, having missed the trip to Feyenoord and ended a run of 60 consecutive matches in the starting XI.

Arkadiusz Milik and Faouzi Ghoulam are long-term absentees who have highlighted the painful lack of strength in depth.

Fiorentina had been struggling badly too, managing two points from four rounds before their 3-0 annihilation of Sassuolo.

Naturally, Napoli pose a much tougher task than the relegation contenders and before that, they only grabbed a point at Lazio thanks to a last-gasp penalty.

Fiorentina haven't beaten Napoli since a 1-0 result here in March 2014.

Prediction: Napoli 2-0 Fiorentina
