Seria A: Napoli vs Siena (07.12)

Pick: 1
Odds: 1.57
Bookmaker: bet365


After a brilliant start to the season, Napoli’s results are on the slide. This match could be the turning point that sees them pick up up a good home win and go on to close the gap with those above them. Napoli are an amazing force at "San Paolo" - until the draw with Cagliari, Partenopenei were on the run of nine straight home wins.

Edy Reja will wait until the last minute to determine whether Matteo Contini will be able to play and if he is unable to, the defender may be replaced by Salvatore Aronica. Marcelo Zalayeta may be on the bench, as German Denis has returned to the squad.

Siena have been performing surprisingly well in the past few weeks. They will be under no pressure after two straight wins as they now have 19 points. But they are with a poor away record (1-1-5).

Siena coach Giampaolo has no serious selection problems. Long-term injury absentee Paul Codrea will still be out.
