As all the major leagues are now kicked off, we have far more varieties of markets to play in as we look forward to the football action on Super Sunday.
Italian Serie A
Empoli v Napoli – Over 2.5 goals @ 1.90 (Bet365) – 3 points
Napoli will take on Empoli this week hoping to turn around their fortunes after a 2-1 loss away from home to Sassuolo and a 2-2 draw to Sampdoria before the international break.
Napoli have managed to secure the services of Pepe Reina in goal; but since his lack of playing football regularly and his ageing days, you can see him leaking goals consistently. Napoli’s poor defensive efforts have seen them conceded 4 goals in their 2 games so far, with a back 4 of Albiol, Chirches, Maggio and Hysaj. Up front Napoli boast a host of talent with the likes of Insigne, Mertens and Higuain up front along with a supporting cast including Hamsik, Callejon, Lopes & Gabbiadini to give them additional firepower. When we look back at last season, Napoli’s games going back to April, which is now 11 games has seen them go for a minimum of 3 goals in each of those games, so when can expect entertainment tonight.
Empoli come into this game sitting in the relegation zone with lots of goals being scored in the games which they are included in. First off, they lose 3-1 to Chievo in the opening round at home and then lost by a score of 2-1 to Milan in the last encounter. Defensively they have been super poor with 11 out of their 13 games, where they have conceded at least 2 goals in those games. Their last 13 games had 11 of them with a minimum of 3 goals in their matches.
The 3 meetings between these teams have seen a lot of goals including a 4-2 Napoli win, 2-2 draw and 3-1 Empoli win. Going by the trend of those games and the poor defences of both sides, one can expect goals to be flowing in this game tonight.
