Our football match prediction:
Napoli are eager to stay in the race for Scudetto. The Neapolitans are nine points behind league leaders Juventus in the Serie A standings, meaning that they face yet another must-win situation against Chievo. The Partenopei defeated Genoa at their Stadio San Paolo at the weekend, but beating the Mussi Volanti in the “City of Love” is easier said than done. Anyhow, seeing that Maurizio Sarri’s men have been scoring goals for fun in 2017, we predict that they will find the net in Sunday’s football match in Verona. Chievo recorded a 3-1 win over ten-man Sassuolo at the weekend and they are definitely capable of scoring against Napoli, who failed to keep a clean sheet in previous three away games in the Italian top flight. A man to watch in the away team will be Dries Mertens, who has been producing splendid displays in the Serie A this season.
