Finally, Serie A calcio is back in business. Napoli’s first game back is at their home field at the Stadio San Paolo on Wednesday night against a tough opponent in Torino.
The Partenopei are looking to pick up a victory and 3 points in order to keep up with Fiorentina who won 3-1 today away at Palermo and move to 38 points. Juventus has moved up to 36 points with a 3-0 win against Hellas Verona. Napoli needs the 3 points in order to move back on top of Juventus and tie Fiorentina for a 2nd place hold or sit at the top of the table with the Viola depending on Inter’s result against Empoli.
Torino isn’t having too much of a great season and are looking to steal points away from Napoli in what should be a great match and great atmosphere as the fans welcome back calcio and their beloved Napoli at the San Paolo. Torino stands with a total of 22 points in the Serie A.
