Team News: Spezia
Titas Krapikas (Corona virus), Federico Mattiello (Fitness), Juan Ramos (Corona virus) and Diego Farias (Unknown Injury) will not be able to play for Spezia boss Vincenzo Italiano. M'Bala Nzola will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: Napoli
Napoli boss Gennaro Gattuso has to currently contend with reduced team options. Faouzi Ghoulam (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Nikola Maksimovic (Corona virus), Kalidou Koulibaly (Leg Injury) and Stanislav Lobotka (Tonsillitis) can’t be considered.
We believe that Spezia have the ability to breach the defence of this Napoli side, but one goal possibly won’t quite prevent defeat.
We’ve gone for a tight encounter finishing with a 1-2 winning margin for Napoli at full-time. Should be an interesting one.
