Napoli may have lost their perfect Serie A record this season, but they are still looking for formidable strength. This weekend they will be looking for the eleven win of the season against Hellas Verona, while the guests will be looking for streak wins.
Preview of Serie A
The pace that Napoli and AC Milan are setting in Serie A highlights that it could be a title race for ages this season. The Italian giants do not blink at this stage, as they are neck and neck after eleven rounds of matches. Napoli are the current leaders thanks to the goal difference and will be favored to win again this weekend.
The hosts have been excellent during the first months of the season and currently still boast an unbeaten record. Their only flaw was a draw a couple of weeks ago, but they bounced back from there with two straight wins.
Their most recent victory was dramatic on the road against Salernitana, with Piotr Zielenski scoring just under half an hour from time to seal the points. The victory was not without its problems, however, as Napoli will have to fight without Kalidou Koulibaly for this weekend’s match.
Hellas Verona will not make it easy for Napoli this weekend, as they are currently eighth in the standings and have won three out of five. They have an excellent offensive record, having already scored 24 goals this season, but have also conceded 20.
Hellas scored a famous victory last weekend, beating Juventus 2-1 at home. They started the faster of the two sides and were rewarded with a 2-0 lead after 15 minutes. Both goals were scored by the fit Giovanni Simeone. However, they will have to be better in defense to really worry Napoli on Sunday.
Napoli-Hellas Verona Head to Head
Hellas Verona are unbeaten in their last two games against Napoli. Last season they drew 1-1 in Napoli and won 3-1 at home. However, those victories ended a six-game winning streak for Napoli.
Prediction Napoli-Hellas Verona
Napoli have been very emotional at the start of the new season and given the number of goals Hellas Verona have conceded, it would be difficult to bet against them while maintaining their lead in Serie A this weekend with a win.
