Chievo is more or less already safe with 32 points and +13 on the relegation zone.
They are in good shape with 7 points in last 3 games with a crazy win over Lazio, in away, for 0-1 after a match where they suffered a lot and were they was very lucky. After that they drew at home against Udinese for 0-0 and in last turn they won again on Sassuolo’s field but in another strange match where Sassuolo was in 10 men after 5 minutes of play.
In offense should start the only Inglese with Birsa and Castro in his back.
Napoli arrive to this match after 4 wins and 1 draw in last 5 games in Serie A but after a bad loss against Real Madrid (3-1) in CL. The loss it’s “normal” in that scenario but the situation was hot especially for the words of president De Laurentiis who shots some tough words on his trainer Sarri. After that Sarri showed that he was not on the president side on the roster rotations and now Napoli is in “press-conference silence”.
For sure the team spended a lot of energy (espeially mental energy) and today isn’t an easy one but if Napoli want stay close to Roma they have to win this one and mantain the distance from Lazio, Atalanta and Inter.
The lineup should be the usual with very few changes: Jorginho for Diawara, Allan for Zielinski and Pavoletti for Mertens. The rest will be the same of last turn.
I take my shot on Napoli side but i expect a close game with few goals.
Napoli @1,52 (1-3)
