Napoli vs Fiorentina: Preview, kick-off time, and where to watch on TV and online – Serie A 2023/24

Napoli have won their last two Serie A games comfortably but they face a tough test on Matchday 8 as they welcome Fiorentina to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.


Napoli will return to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona on Matchday 8 of the Serie A campaign as they face Fiorentina, hoping to put together a run of victories in the league.

The Partenopei couldn’t earn a result against Real Madrid in the midweek Champions League fixture. Nevertheless, there were many positives to take from the game. Returning to domestic football after scoring four times in back-to-back games, the reigning champions will be looking to keep that going. 

Fiorentina will come into the game in good spirits as well, having had an exceptional start to their Serie A campaign that has seen them only lose once so far – against Inter on Matchday 3.

Napoli vs Fiorentina: Predicted line-ups

One change is expected from Wednesday’s 3-2 defeat against Los Blancos, which would see Mario Rui replace Mathias Olivera at left-back. In addition to this, Rudi Garcia may welcome Pierluigi Gollini and Juan Jesus back to the squad. The pair will be evaluated in the days leading up to the Matchday 8 fixture. 

For the visitors, there is a chance that Gaetano Castrovilli could return to the matchday squad for the first time this season. The Italian midfielder is set to be assessed but it is unlikely that he will feature from the start if he is deemed fit. 

Napoli predicted XI vs Fiorentina (4-3-3): Meret; Di Lorenzo, Ostigard, Natan, Mario Rui; Anguissa, Lobotka, Zielinski; Politano, Osimhen, Kvaratskhelia 

Fiorentina predicted XI vs Napoli (4-2-3-1): Terracianno; Kayode, Milenkovic, Quarta, Parisi; Arthur, Mandragora; Gonzalez, Bonaventura, Brekalo; Nzola
