REASON FOR NAPOLI VS PESCARA BETTING TIPS

High-flying Napoli play host to bottom-of-the-table Pescara in Serie A action on Sunday, but it’s a game that might not be quite as straightforward as the teams’ respective league positions and current form suggests.

Napoli have picked up 13 points from their last five Serie A matches, rattling home 18 goals in the process. That means that they are now the leading scorers in Serie A this term, with 42 goals in 19 games.

In stark contrast, Pescara have just a solitary win to their name all season, a 3-0 win at Sassuolo way back in August in their second game of the campaign (having started with a 2-2 draw at home to Napoli). They’ve scored just 14 goals in 18 games whilst conceding 33 and sit eight points shy of safety.

However, Pescara look to be determined not to go down without a fight and they’ve already been busy recruiting in the January transfer window, with Cesare Bovo (Torino), Alberto Cerri (Juventus), Guglielmo Stendardo (Atalanta) and Alberto Gilardino (Empoli) all coming in to reinforce Massimo Oddo’s squad.

For their part, Napoli are missing three players due to Africa Cup of Nations duty, with Kalidou Koulibaly (Senegal), Faouzi Ghoulam (Algeria) and Omar El Kaddouri (Morocco) all out. That said, Lorenzo Tonelli, who was brought in to help cover for the absent Koulibaly and Ghoulam at the back, has already justified his signing by grabbing the winner against Sampdoria deep into stoppage-time last weekend.

Despite the team news, Napoli are still by far the better side and that’s reflected in best odds of 2/11 with Betfair on them to win.

Napoli games usually mean goals and without two of their main defenders, they could well be susceptible to conceding here. Backing a Napoli win with Over 3.5 Goals in the game at Evens with Coral looks viable as does Napoli to win with Both Teams To Score (‘BTTS’) at 6/4 with Betway.

Napoli have won seven of 10 matches at home this season, five of which they have also led at half-time. The Napoli/ Napoli Half-time/ Full-time Double Result is available at 4/6 with Coral, which looks a more than likely outcome.

A 3-1 Napoli win is available at 10/1 with bet365, which looks likely to be in the area of correct score betting we could be looking at here.

If looking for an Anytime Goalscorer tip, it’s worth noting that several Napoli players are odds-on in this market. Marek Hamšík is available at 7/5 with Stan James, which looks reasonably decent value for a regular starter with five goals to his name.


NAPOLI VS PESCARA STATS

Napoli games at the Estadio Vicente Calderón in Serie A average 3.60 goals per game this season, whilst Pescara away games come in at 2.89 goals per game.

Both Teams To Score (BTTS) has occurred in 70% of Napoli’s Serie A games at the Stadio San Paolo and in 56% of Pescara’s away games.


NAPOLI TEAM NEWS

Kalidou Koulibaly (Senegal), Faouzi Ghoulam (Algeria) and Omar El Kaddouri (Morocco) are all on Africa Cup of Nations duty. Arkadiusz Milik is back in training after his cruciate ligament injury, but he’s not due back in 1st team action yet. Defender Ivan Strinic is doubtful.


PESCARA TEAM NEWS

There are doubts of varying degrees over Simone Pepe, Cesare Bovo, Dario Zuparic, Valerio Verre, Alexandru Mitri??, Michele Fornasier and Norbert Gyömber.
