      Verona vs Napoli Predictions

      In Italy’s early game on Sunday, currently red hot Napoli kick off against Hellas Verona, who are still seeking a first win in the Serie A season.

      Verona haven’t been able to make their home ground any sort of fortress, their style of football isn’t coming off this season and Luca Toni might just be past it as a true impact striker at the top level. The result has been an ugly season, it’s certainly not over, but they’re win-less through 12 games and are already six points adrift in the relegation zone.

      Their last two games have perhaps summed up the predicament. Matches against Carpi and Bologna should have provided ideal opportunities to pick up that first win. Instead they were held 0-0 away to Carpi and lost 2-0 at home to Bologna.

      Their task on Sunday will be difficult. Napoli’s slight hiccups to start the season now seem like a distant memory. They edged past Udinese 1-0 in their last game before the international break and they’re probably one of the sides that would have appreciated the break the most. Napoli are a highly effective attack, only Fiorentina and Roma have scored more than their 22 goals this season.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. When Napoli get going

      Napoli have been a devastating team at times during the early running this season. They should be fresh and they’ll enjoy having the ball a lot against Verona.

      2. Time to give up on Verona?

      We didn’t expect to see Verona in this position, but we’re finding it difficult to look past a 12-game sample that suggests they are serious relegation candidates. Even Carpi have managed to pick up one win.

      3. No home fortress

      It would have been hard to bet on Verona getting comfortably beaten in 2014-15, but their home form has been completely different so far this season. It feels like the clash against Napoli ought to be too much.
