Napoli vs Cremonese Prediction and Analysis
Leaders Napoli will be chasing an 18th win in their last 19 Serie A games.
When on Sunday it hosts the last in the ranking Cremonese at its Diego Armando Maradona stadium.
Luciano Spalletti's team looks like a well-oiled machine in all components.
But without a doubt, the attack is the most powerful unit in his team.
With 51 goals scored in 21 games so far, the Partenopei have the strongest attack in Calcioto.
As the second in this peculiar ranking - Inter, has as many as 10 less against its name for the same number of matches.
The main contribution to this high efficiency in front positions is the Nigerian ace in the attack of the hosts - Victor Osimhen .
He has set his sights on becoming Serie A's top scorer this season. As of late, he has been in top form.
Scoring twice in a 3-0 win over La Spezia last round.
Given the fact that in the previous 3 head-to-head matches between these two rivals there were 4+ goals each, I expect that to happen today as well.
Napoli won 4-1 earlier in the season at Cremona. But lost at home for the Coppa Italia after 2-2 in regular time.
But now there will be no forgiveness.
And my prediction is for an easy and crushing victory for Napoli with at least one goal from Viktor Osimhen!
Napoli - statistics and info
Napoli's Serie A home games have been a walk in the park so far.
Because the Parthenopei can boast of 28 points won from 10 home matches .
Achieved from 9 wins, 1 draw and 0 losses.
But Luciano Spalletti's team plays no less well as a guest.
Because they maintain a very strong winning streak of 5 in a row in Calcio, whether at home or away.
Napoli is back here after visiting La Spezia and winning 3-0.
Osimhen twice and Kvaratzhelia scored the goals then.
Victor Osimhen scored in 5 consecutive matches in Serie A. In which he scored a total of 7 goals.
And attacking midfielder Kvaratzhelia won the man of the match honors for Napoli with a rating of 8.84/10.
The Georgian scored 1 goal, made 1 assist, recorded 2 key passes and dribbled past the opponent 2 out of 4 times.
Cremonese - statistics and info
Cremonese returned to Serie A after a long absence after winning promotion last year.
But it seems that from next season they will again play in the second echelon of Italian football.
Because the Calcio season is already half over, and Cremonese are firmly anchored at the bottom .
They are the only one among all 20 teams in the league that has a single-digit point asset after 22 games played.
Also, they are the only team still winless on the season , going 0-8-14.
Furthermore, Davide Balardini's side have the 2nd worst attack and 2nd worst defense in Serie A at the moment.
Against the background of all these negative factors, it is a miracle that Cremonese qualified for the 1/2-finals of the Coppa Italia.
Eliminating not just anyone in succession, namely Napoli and Roma, and that too with away wins.
