Napoli will face Lecce

Napoli will face Lecce at the San Paolo in a match from the 23th round of the Serie A. In these football prediction tips we will give you some insights about this clash, shall we begin?

It seems that Napoli are finally starting to show some results under the management of Gennaro Gattuso. Surpsingly for many, the Azzurri beat the champion Juventus in Naples, while in their next game they won again versus Sampdoria. These six points helped Napoli to climb to 10th place in the standings, which is still not good enough for the club’s ambitions, of course.

In the previous round Napoli visited Sampdoria at the Luigi Ferraris and showed clinical effiency in attack, winning the game with 4-2. Arkadiusz Milik, Eljif Elmas, Diego Demme and Dries Mertens scored for the visitors, while Hirving Lozano and Fernando Llorente once again didn’t get any minutes from Gattuso.

Winning in a third consecutive game would be a statement from Napoli and Gennaro Gattuso that the team is improving after a pretty rough period of time. Let’s see if they can make it three in a row.

Lecce need the points, too. They are very close to the relegation zone at the moment, being 17th in the table with 19 points. Last week they were happy with their performance as they celebrated a very good 4-0 win over Torino at the Via del Mare – their best win for the season. Alessandro Deiola and Antonin Barak scored for Lecce in the first half, while Filippo Falco and Gianluca Lapadula from penalty kick finished the job after the break.

In our football prediction tips we pretty much believe that Napoli will continue to rise against Lecce. Gennaro Gattuso’s team is showing improvement in the last two weeks and we think Gattuso’s hard work is finally giving some results.
