Head to Head


Napoli have a 5-4 advantage against Spezia with 4 draws in 13 matches. 

Napoli had won 3-1 in consecutive home matches before a shock defeat three weeks ago. Napoli were 1-0 up at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona before letting it slip in a 2-1 defeat.

Napoli Form


Napoli started 2021 with a 4-1 win in Cagliari before throwing away three points in a 2-1 defeat to Spezia. They bounced back with three straight wins.

I Partenopei won 2-1 at Udinese in Serie A and 3-1 at home against Empoli in the Coppa Italia. 

Gennaro Gattuso’s side then crushed Fiorentina 6-0 with Lorenzo Insigne bagging a brace and Diego Demme, Hirving Lozano, Piotr Zielinski and Matteo Politano all on target.

Napoli lost 2-0 against Juventus in the Italian Super Cup. Insigne missed a chance to equalise from the penalty spot in the closing stages which proved costly.

Napoli’s last match was a 3-1 defeat at Hellas Verona. Lozano opened the scoring in the 1st minute, but once again they let the lead slip and can have no complaints with the loss.
