Our match prediction:
As expected, Napoli recorded a 3-1 win over Bologna in their last home game in the Serie A, but they dropped two points in Wednesday’s football match against Genoa. The Neapolitans aim to return to winning ways in the national championship and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Chievo on Saturday evening. The hosts will be with one eye on the Champions League clash against Benfica, but seeing that they are desperate to win Scudetto, we predict that Maurizio Sarri’s men are going to leave their hearts on the field this time out. Chievo head into the game following back-to-back wins over Udinese and Sassuolo, but the Partenopei are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the Mussi Volanti than their previous rivals. Over the years Napoli have turned their Estadio San Paolo into a real fortress and, taking everything into account, home win appears on the cards.
Highligted Player (Hysaj):
Born on 2nd February 1994, Elseid Hysaj is an Albanian defender who has spent his entire professional career in Italian Serie A and he is predicted a bright future in the game. Empoli scouts spotted his talent while he was playing for Shodra youth sides, and after three years in the youth team, the full-back was promoted to the first team set up. Hysaj performed really well in his first three years as a first team regular, helping the Azzurri gain promotion to the top fight in the process. One season in Serie A proved enough for the right-sided defender to secure a big club move as he joined Napoli in the summer of 2015 and immediately nailed down a regular starting berth. Capable of doing dirty defensive work as well as making forward runs, Hysaj is a modern full-back, who is destined for big things. The talented footballer is already a key member of the Albania national team and he will represent the country at the Euro 2016 finals.
