Torino vs NapoliSerie A, KO: 17:30 Apr 26, 2021, Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino
Torino host Napoli in an Italian Serie A clash at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino with both teams chasing different targets at opposite ends of the table. The Turin club have turned a corner in their quest to beat the drop but face a difficult time against a Napoli team determined to secure Champions League football.
Torino earned a 1-1 draw at Bologna last time out in Serie A. They fought back from a goal down with Rolando Mandragora's second half effort enough to earn them a point.
The Turin club have now gone unbeaten in their last four matches, a run that has taken them out of the relegation zone. They are up to 16th on the table but still dangerously close to the bottom three with 18th place Benevento level on 31 points.
Davide Nicola’ men remain unconvincing at home having claimed just two wins at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino all season.
Napoli showed their quality in their previous Serie A fixture, claiming a 5-2 victory over Lazio. Captain Lorenzo Insigne netted a brace while Dries Mertens, Matteo Politano and Victor Osimhen were also on target.
Gennaro Gattuso’s men have been on the rise in recent weeks and put themselves in the mix for Champions League qualification. They are fifth on the table, three points behind fourth place Juventus following a run of seven wins in their last 10 Serie A matches.
While Napoli have looked slightly vulnerable at the back, they have goal threats across the final third. That attacking threat often gives them the edge with a 4-3 victory over Crotone and a 2-0 triumph at Sampdoria among their recent results.

Napoli have won three of their last four away matches and should have the edge over Torino.
Head to head
Napoli have a 13-5 advantage from 31 previous matches against Torino. There have been 13 stalemates between both teams, including a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture back in December.
