BIG game tonight is the Italian Cup Final between Fiorentina and Napoli in Rome's Olympic Stadium.

Both league fixtures this season have been won by the away side by one goal so the sides are evenly matched and picking a winner isn't easy.

Fiorentina have have just about won the race against Napoli for the third Champions League spot so Rafael Benitez's men will be keen to gain some revenge with a trophy.

Both sides are in decent form and Fiorentina have pushed on well after losing top scorer Giuseppe Rossi to a serious knee injury back in January.

Summer signing Mario Gomez has also been plagued by injuries, making just nine league appearances, and while both are in the party who have travelled to the capital but are unlikely to feature.

Fiorentina will also be without Vincent Montella, who will be minus suspended midfielder Juan Cuadrado, is hoping to recover midfielder Borja Valero and keeper Norberto Neto who are both doubtful. Valero sustained a knee injury in last weekend's 3-0 triumph at Bologna while Neto hurt a finger in training in midweek.

Napoli are lifted by the likely return of top scorer Gonzalo Higuain. The Argentine striker sustained a heavy bruise to the right shin bone during his team's goalless draw at Inter Milan last time out and has been fighting against the clock to recover.

To win in 90 minutes Fiorentina are 9-4 underdogs at bet365 with Napoli 13-10 with William Hill and the draw 23-10 at bet365.

As I said it's a tough call but both have plenty of attacking prowess and best bet could be both to score at 3-4 with Ladbrokes.

    Word on the street is that Higuain will play

    Cuadrado is a big miss for Fiorentina in my opinion, certainly in the way the team likes to build their attacks. Both sides are fairly evenly matched and on their day both teams could run out as winners here.

    I just feel that with Benitez at the helm, with his record for winning cup competitions, and with the boost of Higuain returning, this one will go to Napoli, possibly by the odd goal in 3.

    Bets for the game:

    Napoli to Win – 2.25 (various)
    Higuain A/T scorer – 2.45 @ BetVictor
    Napoli to win and both to score – 4.6 @ Coral
    Correct score – Fiorentia 1 – 2 Napoli – 9.5 (various)

    Good luck if anyone’s on.

    Non-fatal shootings reported amongst fans (not at the stadium) going to the Coppa Italia final.

    Yup, Napoli fans shot at apparently 3 so far hospitalised 1 critical, Naploli fans didn’t want the game to go ahead until they found out if their fellow supporter was alive. I have also heard the clashes involved supporters of another team from the city it is being held in. It’s only a game, some of these fanatics take things way to serious. Hope everyone involved is ok.
