Our prediction for this Serie A match:
After defeating Cagliari in thier first game after the corona football break, Hellas Verona will be aiming to stay in the Europa League race when they take on Napoli in the „City of Love“. The Mastini have been producing splendid displays under Ivan Juric, and you should know that they are on a ten-game unbeaten run in the Serie A. Napoli, on the other hand, are not enjoying a season to remember as they are sitting in the 6th position in the standings ahead of the restart.
The Neapolitans aim to keep their Champions League hopes alive, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Verona at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi. The good news for Genaro Gattuso is that influential defender Kalidou Koulibaly has overcome his injury. Anyhow, despite Verona’s fine form, away win should be considered. Borini is banned for the hosts, while Eysseric misses the match with injury.
