Torino are currently level on points with 18th place Benevento and are out of the relegation zone purely based on superior goal difference. However, they have played 2 games fewer and wins in those could push them further into safety. Napoli will have a chance to finally enter the top 4 and compete for a Champions League place. Juve’s draw means that they can level on points with the reigning champions and push for a spot in Europe’s elite club competition with a win against Torino.

Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Lorenzo Insigne – Insigne has had a very lucrative career for Napoli and this season has been no different. He has 17 goals and 5 assists in Serie A so far while creating 52 chances, having 41 shots on target and 53 successful dribbles at a 60% completion rate. Insigne also opened the scoring against Lazio and bagged 2 goals.

Andrea Belotti – Despite Torino’s otherwise poor season, Belotti has been quite consistent scoring 12 goals and assisting 6 times in the league. He has created 41 chances, dispatched 35 shots on target and succeeded in 42 attempted dribbles as well. He is also good with both feet, having scored 5 with this left and 6 with his right foot.

Differential Pick

Matteo Politano – The Italian international has been excellent but his performances have gone under the radar this season. Politano has 9 goals and 4 assists in Serie A this season and scored the second goal against Lazio in the last game. He has created 35 chances with 33 successful dribbles at a 61% completion rate. Politano has a shot conversion rate of 53% and has one goal contribution in every 125 minutes of football. Playing on the right flank, his linkup with players like Zielinski, Mertens and Insigne has been incredible.

TOR vs NAP Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Milinkovic-Savic
Defenders – Izzo, Bremer, Rui, Di Lorenzo
Midfielders – Insigne (C), Zielinski, Rincon
Forwards – Mertens, Belotti (VC), Politano

Likely Winner:

Torino is level on points with the relegation zone but they have taken points from some top sides this season like Juve, Roma and Sassuolo. The last time these two sides met saw a late Insigne goal prevent Torino from taking all 3 points. The TOR vs NAP Today Match Prediction can be a win for Napoli but it can very easily end in a draw should the away side drop their heads for even a second. Gennaro Gattuso’s side has responded well since their loss to Juventus and will look to keep that momentum going for the rest of the season.
