Chievo vs Napoli: Chievo: In 11th place, Chievo is exactly in the middle of the Serie A’s league table…
But they don’t have a good enough roster to try and achieve much more than that, so much that the team suffered a heavy drop in terms of performance on the last few rounds and got battered 4-1 twice, against Milan and Smapdoria, who are teams that are some steps below Napoli still.
One of the main reasons for Chievo not being able to climb much more on the league table is their extremely permeable defence, who already conceded 19 goals after just 11 rounds and is amongst the worst of this competition, conceding a lot of goals when they face teams with good attacks, like Napoli.
Napoli: With the second best attack and the 2nd best defence, having scored 32 goals and only conceded 8 after 11 rounds.
Napoli lead the Serie A single-handedly and they had everything to have a quiet first half of the season, but their weak campaign of 1 win and 3 losses on the Champions League and the possible early exit from the competition put the Neapolitan side under even more pressure to do well in the Serie A and a slip-up against Chievo would be deadly to aggravate this delicate moment at the club.
But since the team is well organized and won easily against every opponent they faced in the league, except for Inter, I believe that the team will maintain their flawless campaign as visitors adding another win, which would be the 7th in 7 matches.
Chievo vs Napoli – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Napoli is much stronger than Chievo, and the fact that they are pressured due to poor results on the Champions League increases my confidence on a good performance from the team in this round even more.
If we compare the two rosters, we can clearly see that Napoli’s is much superior, and like they’ve already proven before, they don’t really feel the difference between playing at home or away from home.
I trust on a comfortable win for Napoli on this encounter, having on the -1 Handicap some safety which I really enjoy.
