    Napoli will head to Turin this weekend after another sensational win in the Champions League where the league leaders will look to take one more giant step towards the Serie A title with all three points against an in-form Torino.

    Torino have drastically turned around their form in 2023 and put themselves in a fantastic position for a top 10 finish.

    They did lose in a local derby to Juventus 4-2, but by beating Bologna 1-0 two weeks ago before a 2-0 victory over Lecce on the road, the club sit in eighth and behind their Turin rivals by only one point after Juventus' 15-point deduction.

    Torino have now won 10 games in Serie A after their recent winning form, but their season is summed up quite well by the fact they've let in 29 goals and scored 29 of their own from 26 games.

    As for Napoli, they continued to stun Europe with their 3-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium on Wednesday which saw Victor Osimhen score twice before a Piotr Zielinski penalty secured a 5-0 aggregate win.

    It now means Napoli have reached the last eight in the Champions League for the first time since 2005/06, and in reality, there is no reason based on current form this season why they cannot go on to win the league and European double because nobody will want to draw against them.

    In fact, their only losses this season have been at Anfield to Liverpool, at home to Lazio and on the road Inter Milan.

    Napoli are now 18 points clear at the top of Serie A and with 36 more points available to collect in the remaining 12 games, it means the club may need only six more wins in Serie A to claim their first league title in over three decades, and they may need to win even less than that if the likes of Inter Milan, Lazio, Roma and AC Milan continue to drop points.

    Napoli eased past Atalanta in the last game as Kvicha Kvaratskhelia scored another goal as he continues to establish himself as one arguably the best player in Serie A this season. Amir Rrahmani scored the game's other goal.

    Napoli have only dropped points on four occasions this season and they are clear favourites to win here. Forebet predicts a win for the league leaders and over 2.5 goals.
