Napoli hosts Parma at the Stadio San Paolo

Napoli hosts Parma at the Stadio San Paolo in their first game since the sacking of Carlo Ancelotti. That’s a match from the 16th round of the Serie A. We are going to discuss it with you in our sure win prediction today. Let’s go!

Carlo Ancelotti is no more manager of Napoli. The legendary tactician was sacked after his team’s 4-0 win over Genk in the Champions League. We all knew for a long time that Ancelotti won’t continue, because he was not in a good relationship with the owner Aurelio De Laurentiis.

The former manager of Milan Gennaro Gattuso is Napoli’s new head coach. The former Italian international will make his debut against Parma on Saturday.

Because of their bad results lately Napoli fell down to 7th place in the Serie A. Right now the Azzurri have 21 points and they are 8 points behind the 4th Cagliari. In order to keep their place in the Champions League Napoli will have to do some fine run of results under the management of Gattuso.

Parma are just one position behind Napoli in the standings, being 8th with the same amount of ponts – 21. The club’s record in the Calcio this season looks like this: 6 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses. For them this is a solid season so far, they are happy to be in the Top 10.

Last week Parma celebrated a win. The Crusaders paid a visit to Sampdoria in Genova and celebrated a 1-0 win. Juraj Kucka scored the only goal in the game in the middle of the first half.

That’s our sure win prediction today for the Serie A clash between Napoli and Parma. This game is attracting a lot of interest because of Gennaro Gattuso’s debut as a manager of the hosts. Can he motivate the players to start winning again? We shall wait and see.
