When Napoli and Fiorentina play each other in the Serie A match on May 7 at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, there is bound to be an incredible amount of energy in the stadium.

There will continue to be an enormous party during the whole 90 minutes and even after the game is over since the home team has been declared the champions of Italy.

The outsiders are now in eighth place but have been eliminated from the European competition.

Napoli enters this encounter on the heels of a 1-1 draw that they played against Udinese, a result that was sufficient for them to win the championship this season.

Udinese made a valiant effort to put a damper on the festivities and scored the game's first goal thirteen minutes into the match.

The second half began with Napoli going into the game and scoring an equaliser in the 52nd minute, and it was sufficient to enable them to win the league.

Napoli's latest of five matches in every division ended in a draw at Udinese, meaning they remain winless throughout that span.

However, during those five matches, they have only been victorious once, and that triumph came on the road against Juventus.

In Serie A play, there have been draws against Verona and Salernitana at home; in Serie A play, there has been a draw against Udinese away; and in Champions League play, there has been a draw against AC Milan at home.

According to the stats, Napoli has gone unbeaten in 34 of their past 37 Serie A matches.

The dramatic 3-3 draw that took place at Salernitana on Wednesday night earned Fiorentina a point, which they will take with them to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona when they play there on Saturday.

The score was tied three times throughout the match, with the last goal coming in the 84th minute, but Fiorentina was able to come back each time and score the goal that brought them even.

Despite their result in the match against Salernitana, Fiorentina remains unbeaten in their most recent three matches across all competitions.

In addition to their tie at Salernitana (3-3), Fiorentina had victories at home over Sampdoria (5-0) and Cremonese (0-0) in the Coppa Italia semifinals, both of which were sufficient for them to qualify for the championship game.

Fiorentina has not suffered a defeat in 10 of their most recent 11 games, and they have scored at least one goal in each of their previous 11 league matches.

The pattern of results that have been observed is shown in the following sentence: Each of Fiorentina's five most recent road matches in Serie A has resulted in at least one goal being scored.

Team news: Napoli will be without Matteo Politano and Mario Rui for the foreseeable future due to injuries.

Fiorentina will be without custodian Salvatore Sirigu due to an injury, and the team is unsure whether or not midfielder Sofyan Amrabat will be able to play.


Even if both the players and the supporters of Napoli are in a festive mood, Luciano Spalletti will make sure that his team is prepared for the match.

In their most recent encounters, Fiorentina has been difficult to defeat; yet, given the atmosphere that will be present inside the stadium, the evening may prove to be challenging for Viola.
