Salernitana vs Napoli

, KO: 18:00 Oct 31, 2021, Stadio Arechi

After easing back to the top of Serie A, Napoli will look to maintain their impressive start to the season as they face newly promoted Salernitana at the Stadio Arechi. Both teams have made contrasting starts to the campaign and Napoli will be confident of getting past the Serie A strugglers.

Salernitana are finally off the foot of the table after claiming a 2-1 victory at Venezia in their previous Serie A fixture. A slow start saw them go into the break a goal down before second half efforts from Federico Bonazzoli and Andrea Schiavone completed a turnaround.

It was only the second win of the season for Salernitana, who have found it tough adapting to life in Serie A. Although that win was enough to take them off the foot of the table, they remain in the relegation zone.

Stefano Colantuono's men have found things just as difficult on their own turf with just one win from five matches at the Stadio Arechi this season. They suffered a 4-2 defeat to Empoli in their previous home fixture.

Luciano Spalletti is working his magic at Napoli as they continue to show that their impressive start to the season is no fluke. Having been temporarily overtaken by AC Milan, they returned to the top of Serie A after a 3-0 victory over Bologna on Thursday.

Napoli have been the best team in Serie A this season and remain unbeaten after 10 matches. They have also scored the most goals in the league and boast the meanest defence with just three goals conceded so far.

The defensive stability provided by Amir Rrahmani and Kalidou Koulibaly has seen Napoli keep clean sheets in their last three matches. It also gives them the foundation to be expressive further up the pitch with Victor Osimhen and Lorenzo Insigne impressing this season.

How the bookies view it

The bookies have Napoli as overwhelming favourites with an away win priced at 7/20 with betway. Despite playing at home, Salernitana are outsiders at 10/1 with BetVictor while a draw is set at odds of 22/5 with SBK.

Head to head

Napoli have a 4-2 advantage with four draws from 10 previous matches against Salernitana. The last meeting between both teams was a 3-0 Coppa Italia victory for Napoli in 2009.

Players to watch

Lorenzo Insingne is slowly returning to his best for Napoli after scoring three goals in his last three matches, including a brace against Bologna. He is priced at 7/5 by Skybet to find the net while striker Victor Osimhen could be backed to add to his five Serie A goals at 10/11 with Betfred.

Napoli’s defence has been just as pivotal to the team with Amir Rrahmani and Kalidou Koulibaly forming a solid partnership at centre-back. Given Salernitana’s struggles in attack, they will be confident of keeping a fourth straight clean sheet at 11/10 with Paddy Power.

Lorenzo Insigne's last gasp winner stunned Liverpool in last year's group stages.

Anything else catch the eye

After claiming a 3-0 victory against Bologna last time out, Napoli are likely to earn another comfortable victory. A -1 handicap could be considered at 19/20 with Unibet while a win to nil could also be on the cards at 13/10 with BoyleSports.

Napoli have been the only team to score in two of their last three Serie A matches and could be set for a similar outcome on Sunday at 23/20 with William Hill.
