Team News

Star striker Victor Osimhen is Napoli's only serious injury problem right now as he recovers from a hamstring issue.

Empoli are likely going to be without duo Giusseppe Pezzella and Sebastian Walukiewicz for Sunday's clash.

Matteo Politano to score anytime @ 7/5

A player who has been enjoying his football with Napoli this season is winger Matteo Politano. The 30-year-old is the club's top scorer in Serie A with six goals to his name so far.

He will be looking forward to Sunday's home clash to strugglers Empoli as he will not only see it as an opportunity to boost his tally for the campaign, but to help his team close the gap on the sides above them as they aim to defend their crown.

Politano is in great form right now and he is going to cause plenty of headaches among the Empoli defenders in this game. They are going to find it very difficult to shut him out in this one.

Giacomo Raspadori to score anytime @ 6/5

He may not have as many goals as Politano but striker Giacomo Raspadori has been hitting excellent form of late. The Italy international has scored three goals in his last four appearances across all competitions, and so he too will be heading into the weekend full of confidence.

Raspadori has three Serie A goals thus far and he will be hungry to add to that tally against Empoli. With the main man Osimhen sidelined, Raspadori is doing an excellent job in filling that vacant centre-forward role, and he is flourishing with regular game time.
