Chievo vs Napoli Prediction & Betting tips
The ugly duckling of the Chievo competition receives a visit from Napoli, which shifts its focus mainly to the Europa League. In November, Chievo managed to save a point on the visit to Naples despite seventeen shots, ten of which were on goal against (0-0). Can it profit from the European competitions of Napoli and stunt again?
It is no fun to be a Chievo supporter this season. The team only scored fourteen points (eleven after deduction of penalty points), scored only 21 times and gave up 64 goals. One victory was booked in-house, supporters who traveled to the away games did not see their team win once. That the team from Verona will be last is therefore almost certain.
In the past three games, the team not only lost, it was also overrun. Immediately after the interland break there was the 0-3 home defeat against low-flyer Cagliari, this final score was already reached in the first half before Depaoli took his second yellow card named Chievo. Midweeks there was the 4-0 defeat in Sassuolo, in which it had some bad luck. The VAR rejected two hits, the first due to a violation in the build-up of the hit, the second due to narrow offside. Giaccherini also missed a penalty in the last minute, so there was no honor.
Last Monday the third big loss followed in eight days, the revived Bologna won home 3-0 against Chievo. The Flying Donkeys kept the clear until the 65th minute, after which they gave away two penalties in three minutes. A minute before time, Mitchell Dijks made it 3-0 after he steamed up the left flank.
Napoli almost certainly seemed to be in second place, making it a bit difficult. After the elimination of Salzburg in Europe, two big victories followed in the Serie A. They won 4-2 against Udinese and won no less than 1-4 against AS Roma. After this, the Neapolitans looked more like the upcoming encounters with Arsenal. Mid-week 2-1 was lost to relegation candidate Empoli, who created almost twice as many opportunities as Napoli. Last weekend there was also a draw in-house against Genoa that played from the 28th minute with ten men. Shortly after Sturaro’s red card, Dries Mertens scored the opening goal and a simple victory seemed to be in the making. In the injury time of the first half, Lazovic scored a very justified equalizer on behalf of Genoa and the Azzuri had to start from scratch. Despite 80% possession of the ball and a large number of chances, Napoli was unable to get through the tight defense and again lost two points.
The European competition to which Napoli was able to work all this time also ended in a disappointment. After fifteen minutes, Napoli faced a backlog in London thanks to a perfectly played attack with Ramsey as the finishing touch. Ten minutes later, Fabian Ruiz lost the ball to Lacazette, who shot the ball into the goal via an unfortunate Kalidou Koulibaly. The early 2-0 also turned out to be the final score, as a result of which a counter goal in the return will be fatal.
Insignia started for the first time since his injury in the base against Arsenal, while many people would have expected the striker Arek Milik. Besides Insigne, Faouzi Ghoulam is also fully fit again and Simone Verdi also seems to be able to make minutes again.
