Napoli vs Chievo

Napoli welcomes Chievo in a match from the 13th round of the Italian Serie A. Let’s take a look at this clash, which is going to be played at the Stadio San Paolo on Sunday afternoon.

Napoli is regarded as “the best from the rest” in the Calcio for the moment. Carlo Ancelotti’s team is 6 points behind the leader Juventus, but at the same time, Napoli is 3 points ahead of the 3rd Inter. Most of the people do not expect that Napoli could rival Juventus for the title, but they are favourites for finishing second.

Right now Napoli has 28 points won and a record of 9 wins, 1 draw and 2 defeats. In their last five games, the Azzurri are doing really well, winning four times and losing points only during the 1-1 draw with Roma. In the next two games, they achieved wins over Empoli and Genoa.

Napoli visited Genoa at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris in the previous round. The match ended with a 2-1 win for Ancelotti’s team, thanks to goals from Fabian Ruiz and an own goal from Davide Biraschi.

Chievo, on the other hand, have some serious issues at the moment. The club from Verona started the season with minus 3 points. Now Chievo is 20th in the Serie A with exactly 0 points, turning to be a major favourite for relegation. The team’s record since the beginning of the season shows 3 draws and 9 losses. Right now the Flying Donkeys are the only team in the Serie A without a win.

Of course, this makes Napoli a huge favourite in this match, especially at the San Paolo. It’d be a huge surprise if the home team do not win against a struggling side like Chievo. What do you think?
