Napoli took all of their hard work from their incredible victory at Juventus and tossed it to the side last weekend. The Partenopei moved within a point of the Serie A summit, before capitulating in a 3-0 defeat to Fiorentina last Sunday. That’s left them four points shy of top spot with just three matches left of the season, meaning their title charge is all but over. That has left Napoli with little to play for in their remaining games, so will they roll over this weekend and hand Juve the title, or keep their fight going for as long as possible?

It’s hard to see Napoli’s season ending with a whimper. While they’re set to achieve less than their brilliant displays deserved, there’s an expectation that they have to finish strong. With Juventus yet to visit Roma, there’s still every chance that this one could go down to the final day. It may be too much for Napoli to squeeze in front, but can they finish on a high with a string of victories to end this Serie A campaign?

Hosting Torino is a great chance for Napoli to add another three points to their tally, given their 100% home record against sides outside of the top eight. The San Paolo hasn’t always been the best hunting ground for the Partenopei, who have been more effective on the road of late, but they should continue to swat aside the rest of the top flight with another victory on Sunday.

Torino aren’t that great on the road, with just four wins on their travels all season. They head in to this clash having lost their previous five meetings with the Partenopei, while Napoli have won eight of their last nine at home. We expect yet another defeat for Torino, who have little to show fromtheir previous away trips to the elite sides this term.

However, the visitors have seen over 2.5 goals land in all of their away defeats at sides above them. That’s set to continue, given that the hosts have seen over 2.5 goals in 65% of their home Serie A games this term. Despite the Partenopei’s strong home form, they’ve conceded nine times in their last seven home league games, so Napoli should find the net in this visit. We’re going for a home win and over 2.5 goals, which seems like solid value in our opinion.
