Napoli come out of a bad loss in the Champions League, were they have been eliminated by Real Madrid with a cumulative 6-2 score. That said they didn't play badly, neither in Madrid nor at home, and they were able to fight head to head with the World Champions for at least 1 hour.
Today they meet at home a Crotone team that is next to last in the Serie A, with 14 points out of 27 matches and a score difference of -24 (21:45). Against the terrific attack of the Partenopei (62 goals in 27 matches) I think they should be quite worried.
Napoli is fighting for 2nd place in the Serie A and they have a chance to get it today, at least temporarily, by beating Crotone, as Roma is meeting with Palermo in the evening.
Against Real Madrid, Napoli has been better in the first half (both in Madrid and at Napoli) but they have been dominated in the second half. Today against Crotone I don't think they will suffer such a problem and will score likely to score in both halves.
The hosts are heavy favourites to win this game, so betting on a straight win for Napoli makes little sense, but I see some value in the asian handicap market and I'm going for it.
