Napoli last 5 matches(All Competitions):
Crotone last 5 matches(All Competitions):
Last season, Napoli saw themselves beat Crotone in both meetings. In this fixutre, with Crotone at home, Napoli saw unlikely hero Nikola Maksimovic get the game winner after Manolo Gabbiadini was sent off. It also saw Jose Callejon get a goal as Napoli would win by a scoreline of 1-2.
Napoli come into this one with things getting realigned after a small bump in form, winning their last three matches. Their last match, against Sampdoria, was quite a spectacle. It saw Napoli back to the top of the table, and come back after going down by a goal twice in the match. It also saw captain Marek Hamsik see himself to the top of the all-time Napoli scorers list, getting his 116th goal for the Neapolitans.
Crotone come into this match not quite in the same form as the team they host. Crotone have lost 4 of their last 5 matches, and 2 of 3 since appointing Walter Zenga as manager earlier this month. In their last match, the Pitagorici lost by the scoreline of 4-0 to Lazio at the Olimpico.
Crotone: (4-3-3): Cordaz; Sampirisi, Ajeti, Ceccherini, Martela; Barberis, Mandragora, Rohden; Trotta, Budimir, Stoian
Napoli(4-3-3): Reina; Maggio, Albiol, Koulibaly, Hysaj; Allan, Jorginho, Hamsik; Callejon, Mertens, Insigne
