NAP Vs FIO Dream11 Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Two crumbling outfits turn to each other in a bid to thrust solace in their harsh campaigns.
When Napoli had decided to part ways with Ancelotti, the move had stunned the footballing fraternity. It sent ripples across Serie A with the decision being seen as an inexplicable one especially after Ancelotti had just guided the club through to the next round of the Champions League.
And things have only gone on a wayward spiral since the bemusing decision by the club with the side massively waning in form ever since their bygone manager’s departure. Unravelling, the side have hit a complete rut with their laggard showings seeing them fall down all the way into 11th place in the points tally.
Their previous 1-0 defeat to Lazio left the side with a solitary win in their last five encounters, form which emotes towards how stinker a touch they have been in recently. It’s what will see them rejoice at the identity of their opponents today with 14th placed Fiorentina making for the ideal opponents at the moment to help the club come out of its impasse.
Fiorentina might be enduing a horrid time but they did manage to rake up a crucial win over Spal the last time around. It’s something which is bound to bolster them ahead of today’s outing and with Napoli struggling so shambolically, this tie looks set to be a closely contested affair, one we envision ending in a draw.
Probable Playing 11
- Malcuit, Maksimovic and Mertens will all be finding themselves ruled out for Napoli with the players still struggling with injuries.
- Thereau and Pedro will both be sitting today’s encounter out for Fiorentina owing to their injuries.

NAP Vs FIO Dream11 Goal-Keeper
With a cleansheet the last time around and Napoli floundering massively in their attacking plays, we’ll be moving in with Fiorentina’s Bartlomiej Dragowski for this encounter.
NAP Vs FIO Dream11 Defenders
With these two sides having shipped in the 55 goals in the 36 matches they have contested in between them, the likelihood of a cleansheet looks tepid at best. Althouhg either side will be tentative today with their first priority being of not slipping to another defeat, we envision both sides scoring atleast once on the day.
It saw us to only limit our Dream 11 to the bare minimum of three selections for the day but see us moving in with all the cheap options as well. We begin our picks from Napoli first, going in with two players who are bound to benefit from the spate of injuries in the side’s backline which have left them in disarray.
Both Sebastiano Luperto and Elseid Hysaj are set to be handed out elusive chances in the side’s playing 11 and given their attacking penchant, we are getting in the duo for the encounter. Elsewhere, we have limited ourselves to the one selection from the opposing side with Pol Lirola coming into our side for the contest.
NAP Vs FIO Dream11 Midfielders
Given Napoli’s plight in defence of late, this will be the ideal encounter for Fiorentina to fill their shoes in with goals today. And someone capable of leading that charge for them is Gaetano Castrovilli with the player having come up with the two goals this season to make him our first pick from the side.
He’s paired up with their leading goal scorer with the three goals and three assists, Erick Pulgar. Elsewhere from the other side of the slot we are moving in with Jose Callejon with the player having registered the 3 goals and 4 assists.
Fabian Ruiz comes in as well from the unit to complete our set of picks from the side in this ambit.
NAP Vs FIO Dream11 Strikers
At a time when Napoli have been depleted in their attacking potions, Arkadiusz Milik has been all too willing to wage a lone battle for his side. A striker with a devout eye for the goal, he’s leading the ranks of scorers for his team with the 7 goals to make him an instant pick.
We are also getting in Lorenzo Insigne from the side while from Fiorentina, the enigmatic and euphoria filled Federico Chiesa completes our side for the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Milk will be our captain for this one while Callejon is our vice-captain.
