As they look to consolidate a first top-half finish since 2018/2019, Torino will host erstwhile Serie A contenders Napoli on May 7, with kickoff slated for 18:30 IST. Torino’s finishing in the top half of the table is still a probability as they face top half sides in their last three matches, including this, but they will draw a few positives from their recent performances at home.

Napoli are already looking forward to next season while looking to strengthen their hold on the third place, their first top-four finish since 2018/2019. With Juventus only one point behind, Spalletti’s men will look to finish strong in preparation for next season.

Teams Status

Take a look at the latest form and team news from Torino and Napoli ahead of their Serie A clash:

Torino Form and Team News

Juventus’ neighbors have not had the best of seasons, but a likely top half finish will be a boost ahead of next season and their first since 2018/2019. Failing to lose to AC Milan and Inter at home will give the Torino fans some hope as they are unbeaten in their last three home fixtures. They, however, have a poor record against Napoli at home, with no win in six consecutive meetings, losing five, and drawing once. 

They will draw strength from the recent form of Andrea Bellotti, who struck a late hat trick to give them the win in their last match. They have not lost any home match in which they led at half-time this season, which is another positive for the home side. Mohammed Fares and Magnus Warming will not participate for Torino, and Marko Pjaca’s feature remains in doubt as they are all injured.

Napoli Form and Team News

Two losses and a draw in three games ensured Napoli’s Scudetto thrust died an abrupt death; now, they can only look to consolidate the third spot and prepare for next season. The Neapolitans returned to winning ways last weekend with a 6-1 thrashing of Sassuolo. With their Champions League berth now certain, this fixture may be a formality for Spalletti’s team.

With more points on the road than at home (37 versus 33), Napoli’s away record is formidable, and they hold a greater head-to-head advantage over Torino, winning in five of their last six visits. Stanislas Lobotka will not feature for Napoli, and Adam Ounas is also a doubt due to injuries.

Tipster’s Angle

Napoli have won five of the last ten meetings between them and Napoli, with the remaining five ending in draws. This fixture produced at least two goals in seven of the last ten occurrences. With Napoli in a goalscoring mood last time out and Torino scoring three late goals at Empoli, we expect a lively Serie A encounter with chances created by both teams.

Tip: Over 1.5 Goals @ 1.25

From their head-to-head record, this fixture has produced at least two goals in seven of the last ten meetings. Both teams score great goals on their good days, especially Napoli, who are looking to at least remain in third place ahead of Juventus. Over 1.5 goals is available on the Paripesa sportsbook at 1.25 odds.

Tip: Napoli to Win or Draw @ 1.32

With only one loss in their last ten away games (a shock loss at Empoli), Napoli have a good away record, winning six and drawing three in that ten-game period. With their sights set on third place, we expect them to come out on top or settle for a draw in Turin, one of their favorite hunting grounds in recent years. Napoli to win or draw is available on the Parimatch sportsbook at 1.32 odds.


Spalletti’s men have set their sights on improving next season, seeing their Serie A dreams crumble in this campaign. Torino are also eyeing a top-half finish, setting the stage for a great football game this weekend.
