Napoli will be hoping to overtake Roma in the league table with a win in this match while Fiorentina will be playing with high hopes of finishing ahead of AC Milan.

Napoli have had a good season even though they will end it without a trophy.

They currently have 80 points from 36 league matches, just a point behind second place Roma in the league table.

They are the highest scoring team in the league table with 86 goals, 16 goals more than league winners Juventus.

They are also the most in-form team in Italy right now as they have not lost any of their last 10 league games and they have won 8 of those matches.

They are even more deadly at home as they have won their last 3 home games in a row by scoring 3 goals each.

Fiorentina have not had a bad season – they are currently 7th in the league table with 59 points, just one less than 6th placed AC Milan, but 7 less than Atalanta who occupy the last European spot.

They have managed 5 wins from their last 10 league games but collected only 4 points from their last 3 league matches.

They have no wins from their last 3 away games although they managed to score 2 goals in 2 of those games.
