Victor Osimhen hopes to fire Napoli back into top spot in Serie A in Sunday’s showdown with Torino at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
It’s been a dream start under new manager Luciano Spalletti for Napoli so far. The Partenopei are the only Serie A club to maintain a 100%-winning record this season, having won all seven of their matches. If they win again or claim a point, they’ll reclaim first place from AC Milan – who beat Hellas Verona 3-2 on Saturday.
As for Torino, it’s been a far from an ideal start to the season. The Granata are 11th in the league table on eight points from seven games, leaving them 13 points behind Napoli.

Current form — SSC Napoli v. Torino
The Partenopei are on a roll
SSC Napoli look to build on their current momentum with another positive result. Luciano Spalletti’s side are a bit back and forth at the moment, but at least mostly forth, as they beat Cagliari by 2-0. Following that up proved too difficult, as they lost 3-2 against Spartak Moskva, before claiming 3 points in a 2-1 win against Fiorentina.
Torino hope to boost points tally
It has been a rollercoaster couple of weeks for Torino with performances showing little sign of stability. It is not all bad but it is not really good either for Ivan Jurić’s side right now with just 2 points from their last 3 matches. They first drew 1-1 against Lazio, followed by another draw. This time it ended 1-1 against Venezia, before going down in a 0-1 defeat against Juventus.
Judging by the strong performances mentioned above, SSC Napoli seem in with a good shot of another win against Torino. The bookmakers currently settle the price for a home win at 1.40 whereas a win for the visitors pays out odds of 8.50 at the time of writing.

Man of the Moment
Looking at the goalscorer market, it would seem a good idea to side with Victor Osimhen. He is the top-scoring player for SSC Napoli in their last 6 matches. He managed to find the back of the net 7 times, and will surely want to add some more goals against Torino.
The visitors will be looking to in-form Marko Pjaca to find the net once again, as he has been their main man recently. The on-loan Juventus winger has netted 2 goals for Torino in their last 6 matches.
