Verona vs Napoli Prediction & Betting tips
At the restart, the SSC Napoli secured the sixth Coppa Italia and thus automatically qualified for the group stage of the Europa League. However, that does not mean that Partenopei is holding back in the fight for sixth place in the continuation of league operations.Therefore, it is important to defend that position against main pursuer Hellas Verona, who, with just one point behind, has the great chance of going past the Azzurri with a home three.
The Gialloblu won the last four games in a row at the Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi and are eager to expand this series against the reigning runner-up. You can find out which bookmaker at Hellas Verona against Naples offers the best odds for this to succeed with the Scaligeri with just a few clicks in the odds comparison of the betting base.
Despite the strong home series in their own stadium, the mastini against the freshly baked Italian cup winner are only outsiders.
This is not surprising insofar as the forecast against Verona against Naples is also influenced by the “head to head” comparison. And the SSC not only won the last five league games in Serie A against the Mastini with a goal difference of 12: 1, but Napoli won 13 of the last 16 league games against Hellas.
Because the overall Coppa Italia victory should inspire the Azzurri all the more and could give them a certain lightness for the final sprint of the season, we think it is most sustainable to play tip 2 at Verona against Naples. Further betting recommendations for the highest Italian division are available in the category Betting Tips Serie A.
In 1985 the Hellas Verona Football Club, which was founded in 1903 by high school students in Verona, celebrated winning the Italian championship. To date, this Scudetto is the first and only title win for the Gialloblu, who have been to the Coppa Italie final three times and once reached the quarter-finals of the UEFA Cup.
The current millennium was characterized by instability. In 2002 the Scaligeri relegated from Serie A and five years later they even had to start in third class. Since then there have been a number of ups and downs. In the past four years alone, there have been two relegations from Serie A and a direct return. Last summer, fifth place in Series B and a subsequent run in the playoffs were enough.
All the more, the mastini were once again the number one relegation candidate in the 2019/20 season. A role that they never fulfilled. On the contrary. Rather, the scaligeri are stepping up a return to international competition.
After the successful victory at the re-start in the 2-1 win over Cagliari Calcio, seventh place is currently on the books. The gap to today’s guest from Naples is just one point. If Hellas Verona against Naples tip 1 were too high odds, the Gialloblu would climb to sixth place.
To beat the newly crowned overall winner of Coppa Italia, Ivan Jurić’s team certainly needs a good day. But at the Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi at home there have been good days without exception. There are currently four home wins in a row, including a 2-1 win over the high-flyer Juventus in the last home game before the break.
Overall, the Gialloblu are fourth on the home table of Serie A and also occupy this position in the 2020 annual table. Hellas Verona scored four points more than Inter Milan or the upcoming guest SSC Napoli in the current calendar year.
However, this home game against Partenopei is not without worry lines. Not only did Fabio Borini finally get a removal order against Cagliari and is missing today, but with Valentin Eysseric, Matteo Pessina, Andrea Danzi, Matteo Lovato and Pawel Dawidowicz, five other players are injured. This cannot be easily compensated for by a team that is not as well staffed as most other first division teams.
In the 2019/20 season, the SSC Napoli truly experiences a change of emotions. Last summer, the runner-up was won in the first season under new coach Carlo Ancelotti, but in the end the eleven points were missing in the final table to series champion Juventus Turin.
All the more the Partenopei took for players like Alex Meret, Konstantinos Manolas, Eljif Elmas or Hirving Lozano in hand to further close the gap to the Bianconeri. And it was all the more bitter for the southern Italians that not only did a large gap to the Zebre quickly develop again, but suddenly there was no longer even a top four position.
It was due to an unprecedented negative series, in the context of which Carlo Ancelotti had to pack his bags last December, that the reigning runner-up was suddenly even to be found in the lower half of the table and was far behind a starting spot for the Europa League.
Even Gennaro Gattuso was unable to turn the tide at first and suffered five defeats to the debut, which the winning streak screwed up in twelve games. And then, out of nowhere, the Partenopei beat Juventus 2-1 and started a sensational race to catch up. In league operations, 15 out of 18 possible points were posted before the break.
And now the Azzurri have officially managed to gild a season that could have been a season to be forgotten. First, a 1-1 draw against the Nerazzurri was enough to solve the final ticket, and now Napoli prevailed against Juve on penalties and celebrated their sixth overall victory in Coppa Italia.
That should undoubtedly boost the tasks in league operations when it comes to further expanding the recent upward trend. In the eyes of the bookmakers, it seems very likely that it will continue with an away win for the promoted team. After all, at Verona against Naples the odds in the direction of the Azzurri turn out.
Gennaro Gattuso currently has to do without Kévin Malcuit and Stanislav Lobotka, but recently the contract with goalie Dries Mertens was extended, who was one of the most valuable players, whose contract expired this summer, on the requests of a number of top European teams.
This is also a sign that the Partenopei are ready to attack fully on the remaining twelve game days, perhaps to close the gap of twelve points in fourth place.
