Verona vs Novara by Enzo
Verona is doing more than fine in the new season, since the team looks like obviously the strongest side and it would be already a huge surprise in case the team doesn't promote at the end of the competitive season. They are now at the first position, having already six points more than third placed Frosinone, spot that won't be promoting directly, but also already twelve more than out of play-off zone placed Brescia.
With nine victories, three draws and just one defeat, the team really does inspire with all the confidence. Additionally, they are in a great momentum, winning four out of last five matches and being undefeated in last ten league matches, earning eight victories and two draws. In the most recent game, they won over Spezia on the road with very convincing 4:1 result, game that saw them conceding a goal after three matches with a clean sheet. They are 5-1-0 in front of own fans and are surely aiming an easy victory here in order to get through to the promotion as soon as possible.
Verona should be playing in 4-3-3 formation, starting with: Nicolas; Souprayen, Caracciolo, Cherubin, Pisano; Bessa, Fossati, Romulo; Siligardi, Pazzini, Luppi. They'll miss Franco Zuculini.
Novara, on the other side, is struggling a lot this season, as the team doesn't inspire with much of the confidence neither at the back nor in offensive display and they are deservedly at the second part of the table for now. After thirteen rounds played, the team is at fourteenth position with same number of points, which is just a point more than play-out placed Vicenza.
Furthermore, they come from two straight defeats, last one being at home over Spal last weekend, since the team was behind in the scoreline already in eleventh minute via Giani. Even though they had more of the ball possession and chances created from that moment on, Novara didn't manage to convert anything into more concrete actions in front of opponents goal and stood with empty hands in the end. Away from home they have been just terrible for now, with six defeats out of same number of matches and being the worst travelers in the league, they can only be completely satisfied with a point here.
Visitors from Novara will be playing in 4-3-1-2 formation: Da Costa; Dickmann, Troest, Scognamiglio, Calderoni; Viola, Kupisz, Adorjan; Faragò; Sansone, Galabinov.
Verona might not be searching for a bigger margin victory here, but I'm so convinced in their triumph and am willing to take the risk of chasing the handicap here. They have plenty of quality in offense and are close to rock solid side in the defensive department and it won't be any surprise in case they break their opponents in pieces here.
