Verona vs Napoli by Marlo
They are ahead of both Inter and AC Milan, two of the premier teams in Italy. However, they way they have played this season it is no surprise to see them sitting in 5th position with a chance of closing the gap on Fiorentina.
They have suffered one home defeat this season, winning the other 8, turning over the likes of Lazio, AC Milan and Livorno. They have a settled unit and have no injury concerns for this clash.
They have scored 2 or more in 8 of their 9 home games, so it is no surprise to see most people expecting them to score 2 or more here. However, they will welcome Napoli, a strong outfit in their own right, coming close to knocking Arsenal out of the Champions League this season in the last clash of the group stages.
Napoli are a match for any Italian team, whether they are home or on the road and this is what puts me off backing Verona goals or Verona win or dnb.
Napoli are hunting European places in the same way as their opponents and are 3rd place on the table.
I can see a 2-1 either way, even a 2-2 depending on how this game progresses.
I will take safer over 2.5 here as this one if tough to call a winner. Strong claims for both teams.
Hamsik is doubtful, Cannavaro and Behrami are out for Napoli. They have scored in 4 of their last 5 away from home including a goal against Dortmund in Germany. Only Juventus have kept them out on the road in their last 5.
Good luck if you're on.
