    Goalkeeper – Meret
    Defenders – Hysaj, Di Lorenzo, Milenkovic, Venuti
    Midfielders – Biraghi, Insigne (C), Zielinski
    Forwards – Osimhen, Ribery, Vlahovic (VC)

    Likely Winner:

    This is a dead-rubber game for Fiorentina but a lot is at stake for their counter-parts. Napoli has been great all season it will be a shame to miss out on Champions League football despite their hard work. The race for Europe is getting heated and a win against Fiorentina will take them straight to 3rd place, depending on AC Milan’s result. Fiorentina would love to spoil the party for Napoli as they have done with Lazio and Juventus before. The away side will take confidence from their last meeting against Fiorentina which ended in a 6-0 victory. The FIO vs NAP Today Match Prediction should be a win for Napoli.
