Napoli expected to extend their 2-match winning streak

<div><h2>Lecce vs Napoli</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/it/serie-a/us-lecce-vs-ssc-napoli-3890944/?mtid=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Serie A Betting Odds"><strong>Sunday, September 22, at Stadio Via del Mare (Lecce)</strong></a></p><p>Like every season, Napoli are one of the contenders for the Serie A trophy but unfortunately for them they always come 2nd as there’s just 1 team in Italy right now, Juventus. They’ve played out 2 high-scoring clashes in their first two matches this season beating Fiorentina 4-3 and losing with the same score to Juventus in the 2nd round. After that, they kept 2 clean sheets in their previous 2 matches, 1 in Serie A 2-0 at home against Sampdoria and 2-0 again on home soil against the Champions League reigning champs Liverpool. On the other side, Lecce were scoreless in their 1st three matches of the season but in the 3rd round they pulled-off the upset beating Torino 2-1 on the road. Despite that last victory Lecce are still one of the favourites to return in Serie B at the end of the season.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Lorenzo Insigne who suffered a muscle injury against Juventus and was substituted during half time returned against Sampdoria last weekend. Another good news for Carlo Ancelotti is the return of Arkadiusz Milik. Both Dries Mertens and Lorenzo Insigne are on fire scoring 3 and 2 goals respectively in 3 Serie A matches with Mertens scoring also against Liverpool in the Champions League. Napoli were very active during the summer transfer spending £115.20m on some world class players like Hirving Lozano from PSV or Manolas from AS Roma. One of their best transfers was a free transfer. They signed Fernando Llorente who filled in the gap in Napoli’s attack.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=168&amp;a=0d6ed5cd-99a2-41c2-abf3-f12f9f951422&amp;f=2" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5d580afa408d53fc8c579955/original-bet-365-early-payout" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Lecce are playing at home but are huge underdogs. They are priced at 8.5 to win this match while Napoli are huge favourites being priced at 1.36 on the road. Lecce defended good against Torino in the last round but let’s be honest Torino played at 50% of their capacity with Andrea Belotti not showing up for that specific match. Napoli are one of Italy best teams and they will probably finish the season as the attacking side. They have a brilliant attacking firepower with creative players, and we expect them to impose their rhythm against the newly promoted side Lecce and easily return home with the 3 points. All season long, Lecce will have the same approach against the big names in the league. They will park the bus and try to strike on the break, but Napoli have too much quality going forward and we expect them to score a fast goal and open the match.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Serie A Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Napoli to win and over 2.5 goals in the match at 1.91 with Coral</strong></em></a></p></div>
