NAP Vs PRG Dream11 Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Wayward Napoli look to curb their downward spiral when they take to the Copa Italia.
When Napoli take to the pitch today, for the side, this is more than just a Copa Italia encounter. Waning and wavering to go on a downward spiral in Serie A, the side will be looking to use today’s encounter as a confidence building exercise.
For the home side, things have massively unravelled after removing Ancelotti from his post as the club’s manager. In what was an inexplicable decision by the side, one which left everyone perplexed, the supporters’ worst fears are being brought to fruition given the recent spate of defeats.
The 1-0 defeat they suffered to Lazio the last time around was a damaging one, a showing which condemned the side to its third defeat in four matches. They are now sitting in 11th spot, a position which is hardly befitting of the staunch stature of the side. And while they’ll be quietly confident of defeating their Serie B opponents today, their prevelant form will hardly make this a straightforward encounter.
Perugia are going to find it extremely tough to contain a hurting Napoli side, especially with injuries to their star performers. Napoli’s attacking might should be too much for them to curtail, one which should see the hosts finally imbed in place some semblance in their season.

Although Napoli have been far from sound and compact as a defensive unit this term, losing their belonging all too often, the side look likely to pull off a much yearned for cleansheet today. This is going to be an encounter where they cherish a magnitude of the ball, one which will massively limit Perugia’s chances of fathoming together attacking plays.

Napoli’s main reason for underwhelming massively this season has been the side’s failure to unlock the true potential of their attacking players. This was a side which till last season was revered and feared given their ability to persistently batter oppositions with their attacking sorties.
And while they are yet scouring for those same imperious showings, in Perugia, they have the ideal side to flay and rout. We envision this being a match where Napoli are able to rediscover their long lost attacking exuberance to see us bring in a trio of picks from the outfit.
Joe Callejon, Fabian Ruiz and Piotr Zielinski constitute a trivalent of names capable of manifesting heir skill set in tandem and ominously perturbing the opposition with their intricate shots and passes. Elsewhere, we have gone in with just the one pick from the other side of ambit with Andrija Balic representing us from the side.
NAP vs PRG Dream11 Strikers
Napoli’s top scorer with the seven goals, Arkadiusz Milik was always going to be an instant pick for us for this tie. Although, Napoli could end up toying around with their side a bit for the day, we don’t envision them leaving Lorenzo Insigne out with the player having gotten three goals and four assists for his side till now.
Elsewhere, with Perugia missing out on their top goal scorer, the onus will be Cristian Buonaiuto to carry the side’s attacking thrust, something his flair allows his to do.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Milik will be captaining our team for this one while Insigne is our vice-captain.
