It is the fun end of the table against the lower end in Serie A as SSC Napoli square up against Salernitana for a match on Sunday.
With league positions in mind, a win for Napoli seems a likely outcome. The Victor Osimhen-inspired Partenopei are at the top of the Serie A table with 28 points from 10 games. They remain unbeaten so far and have only failed to win a game once all season.
Things on Salernitana’s end, however, aren’t so rosy. With 3 defeats from their last 6 matches, the mood around the visitors’ camp could probably be a lot better. They have just seven points and are down in 19th place.

Current form — Salernitana v. SSC Napoli
The Granata performing to expectations
Results have been on par for Salernitana in their past games, as they have performed more or less according to expectations. Stefano Colantuono’s side suffered a couple of disappointments in their last 3 matches, as they were run over by Spezia in a 2-1 defeat. Empoli also proved too hard to handle, as they won 4-2 before Salernitana were able to strike back last time out in a 2-1 win against Venezia.
The Partenopei are in good shape
SSC Napoli will be out to extend their fine run of results lately. Luciano Spalletti’s side look in good shape before their upcoming match as they seek to remain unbeaten. In their last 3 matches, they first beat Legia Warszawa by 3-0 before drawing 0-0 with Roma. They were back as winners last time out when they took out Bologna by a 3-0 scoreline.
Judging by the strong performances mentioned above, SSC Napoli seem in with a good shot of another win against Salernitana. The bookmakers currently settle the price for a home win at 11.00 whereas a win for the visitors pays out odds of 1.40.

Primary goal getter
Looking at the goalscorer market, it would seem a good idea to side with Milan Djuric. He is the top-scoring player for Salernitana in their last 6 matches. He managed to find the back of the net 1 time but will be hopeful of more against Napoli.
The visitors will be looking to in-form Lorenzo Insigne to find the net once again, as he has been their main man recently. The captain has netted 3 goals for SSC Napoli in their last 6 matches. And if not him, Victor Osimhen would be another worthy goalscoring threat.
