These teams are having a great run in Serie A. Napoli are second with 56 points. A point below leader Juventus, and Fiorentina are third with 49 points. Yes, that is a big gap.
The Neapolitans will face Villarreal, who are fourth in Spanish La Liga Primera. And La Viola will face Tottenham Hotspur, who are second in English Premier League. Big games, surely.
I believe Napoli are strong enough to beat Villarreal, given their consistent performances in Serie A. Last weekend defeat by Juventus won’t affect them much.
Meanwhile, I have doubts about Fiorentina. Though they’ve just beaten third place Inter and took their spot last weekend, I don’t think they are strong enough to handle the on-fire Tottenham Hotspur, who were just taking three points out of the Etihad Stadium. Pochettino’s young team are just two points below Premier League’s leaders Leicester City.
But whatever should happen, I will enjoy the games.
