Napoli vs Parma PredictionNapoli v Parma Prediction and Preview for Saturday's Serie A fixture. Napoli have been enduring a frustrating Serie A campaign so far this season, wallowing in seventh place having picked up just twenty-one points from a possible forty-five. They have been difficult to watch in the domestic league, with some lackluster performances on show at times.
Match status: 2019-20 Serie A - Matchweek 16
Kick-off:
Venue: Stadio San Paolo (Naples)
They have been impressive in the Champions League, however, sweeping opposition teams under the carpet, to clinch a spot in the knockout phases of the competition. However, following the 4-0 victory over Genk, which saw them secure advance from the group stages, an unexpected tragedy struck.

Few hours after the huge victory, the club’s hierarchy decided to relieve Carlo Ancelotti of his coaching duties with immediate effect, appointing Gennaro Gattuso as new head coach of the club.

Still in search of their first league win since October, the hosts will be hoping the new man at the wheel will stir them to victory against tricky Parma to finally break their losing jinx.

Napoli vs Parma Team News

Gli Azzurri had been on a nine-game losing streak before the awful run was brought to a halt against Racing Genk in the Champions League. They fired four unanswered goals past sorry Genk to secure a spot in the knockout phases of the competition.

However, the win was not enough to save Carlo Ancelotti from the sack as he was shown the exit few hours after the game.

The three-time winning Champions League-manager was given the axe, with one of the players he took under his tutelage at one point, Gennaro Gattuso taking over the reins at the club. The Italian tactician will be left to decide the next step to take in his managerial career over the next few months.

Gennaro Gattuso has been tasked with the responsibility of providing a short-term fix for an underachieving club, perhaps getting them into the Champions League places before the end of the season.

Napoli’s form in front of the home support have been nothing to write home about, with three wins, two draws and two defeats their record so far. They have averaged 1.26 goals per game while allowing 0.86 down the other end of the pitch. To make matters worse, they have picked only two points from their previous three home fixtures.

Parma, on the other hand, recorded victory last time out to bounce back from the narrow 1-0 loss suffered against Milan the game before. They nicked a narrow win at Sampdoria, thanks to Juraj Kucka’s first-half goal.

Level on points with Napoli, spotting a win-draw-loss record of 6-3-6, it is fair to say Roberto D’Aversa’s side have been enjoying a wonderful season so far. They are just seven points adrift the Europa League places.

They are currently on an impressive four-game unbeaten run on the road and will be looking to stretch that streak to five games on the trot with a positive result against the Parthenopeans. Also, they have claimed eight points from their last five league outings.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Napoli: Kevin Malcuit, Faouzi Ghoulam, Lorenzo Tonelli, Nikola Maksimovic.

Parma: Roberto Inglese, Yann Karamoh, Juraj Kucka.

Napoli vs Parma Predictions

Separating these two sides on paper is a pretty arduous task, given both teams have been playing similarly so far this season. Their similarity also extends to the record books as both teams are currently level on points on the log.

This game could go either way but expect both sides to breach the other at least once before the end of the match. Also, there is most likely going to be a winner in this fixture, as a draw doesn’t necessarily appear feasible.
