Fiorentina vs. Napoli - Serie A match preview - Round 35 - April 29th, 2018. After beating Juventus for the first time in Turin last weekend, Napoli are within one point of the summit in a very entertaining and hotly contested title race. The potential of knocking off the six-time-in-a-row champions, could very well depend on the trip to Florence this coming Sunday.

There are four games left in the season and Napoli will likely need four wins if they are to stand a chance of winning the Scudetto for the first time since the days of Diego Maradona. Thanks to their grueling performances and fighting spirit, Maurizio Sarri's men have not lost an away game in Serie A the entire season, a run that goes back deep into last season, amazingly enough.

Fiorentina have no choice but to settle for a mid-table spot this year. They held Napoli to a 0-0 draw back in December and are looking to make things difficult for their guests again this weekend.

The Italian Serie A is the only big European league with an open title race. Let's take a look at some of the odds related to it:

Time Stamp: April 27th, 2018 - 7:42am EST
Odds Subject to Change

Fiorentina: 11/2
Draw: 10/3
Napoli: 1/2

To win the title:

Juventus: 10/11
Napoli: 10/11

With Juventus having tough visits to Milan and Rome before the season is over, the title race is too close to call, according to the odds. Napoli are the favourites to beat Fiorentina away though. The motivation could not be higher and their record on the road is astonishing.

For impartial observers and fans of Italian football, this is such an awesome development. Not only do we have a strong contender in Napoli to claim the throne, but the Italian clubs in general are doing better in Europe. After more than a few years in the shadows, it feels as Italian football is back in the spotlight.

Let's see how things play out this weekend.

Enjoy the games everyone!
