Chievo vs Napoli
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 14 April 2019
Kick-Off 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).
Teams from completely opposite ends of the Serie A standings will cross each other’s paths on Sunday evening at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi. The match will by no means affect the final look of the league table as neither of two sides have anywhere to go in remaining seven rounds of the campaign.
The hosts will likely be officially relegated to the second division football after this Matchday being as many as 19 points short of the safe zone. Partinopei, on the other hand, are seven points clear off third-placed Inter Milan, while leaders Juventus are 20 points away at the top of the standings.
The gulf in quality between the two outfits is massive and the only question should be how many goals will Napoli score on the evening in Verona?
Chievo vs Napoli: Head-to-head
Chievo stunned Partinopei holding them to a goalless draw when these two likes met each other in the first part of the season at Stadio San Paolo.
Overall, Partinopei were much more successful historically as they lead the H2H tie by 10 wins coming into 28th clash with Chievo.
I Gialloblu celebrated their previous victory over Napoli back in September 2014.
Chievo vs Napoli: Prediction
Domenico Di Carlo’s men lost each of last three league outings by at least three goals difference without scoring a single goal in the process. It’s a bitterly disappointing run if we know the opposition included the likes of Cagliari, Sassuolo and Bologna along the way.
Napoli’s lack of motivation caused a streak of a draw and a defeat in last two league rounds. The head coach Caro Ancelotti will likely rest his main stars for the reverse fixture of the Europa League quarter-final against Arsenal, but Partinopei still head into this as clear favourites and anything but their comprehensive victory would be an upset here.
Anyhow, you should be careful with stakes knowing the visitors have no motivation whatsoever.
