Napoli vs Perugia Prediction
Napoli had to taste defeat in their previous encounter with Inter Milan. They couldn’t stop the brace from Romero Lukaku even at their own turf. Also, they have lost three of their last ten overall fixtures.
Besides that, the host has lost at home only to stronger sides like Inter and Parma recently. Along with that, Napoli is unbeaten at home in six of the previous ten home matches. So, we can count on the home team to fare well against the lower tier contingents.
Even in the lower tier league, Perugia has been struggling to take points in the table. Evidently, they have recorded only one win in their last five fixtures.
Apart from that, Perugia has won only twice in the last ten away games in major contests. Also, they have been winless in six of their prior ten attempts in overall major competitions.
Moreover, the visitors were defeated 0-1 at home by Venezia in their previous Serie B encounter.
If Perugia cannot hold on a fellow Serie B side at home, it will be very difficult for them to defeat Napoli at the latter’s own turf. Hence, Napoli has more chance of winning the game in ninety minutes and probably even with a -1 handicap over the opponents.
Since they are facing a lower league team, Napoli will be eager to score goals. Henceforth, we can expect the total scoreline to be over 2.5 goals in ninety minutes.
