Hellas Verona welcomes Napoli to Marc Antonio Bentegodi in round 19 of the Italian Serie A.

Verona beats the favorites in this one Season and has only lost 1 of its last 4 games. Verona has had a good season so far and is 9th with 27 points, 22 goals scored and only 17 conceded. Verona are not an overly offensive team but their defense is excellent. In their last Serie A game, Verona played against Bologna on the street and had 52% possession, 1 shot on goal, 3 corners, 1 big chance and 77% correct passes. Verona conceded a goal in the 19th minute from the penalty spot and this is where the lack of offensive came to light. Verona has a hard time scoring goals and they couldn’t do that here. Verona lost this game with 0: 1. Zaccagni is the best player in Verona with 4 goals and 4 assists while Barak added 3 goals and 2 assists. Benassi, Vieira, Veloso and Ceccherini are all injured while Favilli and Tameze are both still in question. Verona will stay far from the relegation zone again but I’m not sure they can reach the Europa League without further insult.

Napoli had a winning streak in three games up to their Super Cup game against Juventus earlier this week. Napoli have big problems this season, but they are still in a solid 5th place in the Serie A standings with 34 points, 40 goals scored and only 16 goals conceded. Overall, Napoli is one of the best teams in Serie A, but they have to work on their consistency. In that game against Juventus, Napoli had 44% possession, 3 shots on goal, 3 corners, 1 big chance and a decent 82% of correct passes. After losing in the 64th minute, Napoli had a chance to score from the penalty spot in the 80th minute, but they missed. Juventus confirmed their victory in the 95th minute and Napoli lost 2-0. Insigne is Napoli’s Serie A top scorer with 9 goals while Lozano has 8 goals. Mertens has 4 goals and 6 assists. Osimhen, Malcuit and Ruiz are all injured. Gattuso has done a good job since joining Napoli as head coach but it is now clear that Napoli needs reinforcements and I hope they get some in the winter transfer window.

Verona haven’t won any of their last 7 games against Napoli and they have had very little success against them in recent years. I expect a good defense from Verona while Napoli will try to recover from their Super Cup defeat. Napoli has been solid this season and I’ll take it.
