Unbeaten in their last five league games, Napoli will be looking to extend their good run of form when they host Palermo at the Stadio San Paolo in the 22nd round of the Italian top division.
The hosts have been in a really strong form in recent weeks. They are only four points behind the league leaders Juventus and they are keeping the pressure so far. Napoli have collected a total of 13 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Serie A. Their last league match was against A.C. Milan away from home where they won 2-1.
Napoli are currently sitting in the 3rd place in the league table. They have 44 points from 13 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses. They have scored 47 goals and conceded 24 since the start of the season.
Arkadiusz Milik is slowly reaching full fitness and might even be called up for this game. Ivan Strinic picked up a muscular injury and that might speed up Faouzi Ghoulam return since coming back from AFCON.
The visitors are in a much more difficult situation compared to the hosts. Palermo have lost all of their last three games in Serie A. They have collected a total of 4 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Serie A. Their last league match was against Internazionale Milano at home where they lost 1-0.
Palermo are currently sitting in the 19th place in the league table. They have 10 points from 2 wins, 4 draws and 15 losses. They have scored 17 goals and conceded 41 since the start of the season.
Eugenio Corini resigned from his position as Palermo manager and Diego Lopez will take his place. The new coach is not expected to change much for his first game in charge.
