Napoli are riding a three-match winning streak in Serie A that has put them firmly in contention for a top-three finish and a spot in next season's Champions League. Argentinian forward Gonzalo Higuain, who struck twice against Samp to increase his season tally to 15 goals, will lead Napoli's attack.
Empoli are unbeaten at home since January 26 but have not won a Serie A game since March 22 and have collected two points since.Last weekend's 2-2 result at Atalanta was their second straight draw and dropped the Tuscan outfit to 16th place, 12 points clear of the relegation zone, they will be without defender Lorenzo Tonelli, who must serve a one-match ban as punishment for trying to intimidate Atalanta forward German Denis.
I expect a very open TV show game tonight.
