Previous meetings:

In Recent history, Napoli have dominated this fixture, winning 7 of the last 8 meetings between the two clubs, with a combined scoreline of 25-6.

In the opening fixture of this season, Napoli beat Hellas Verona by a scoreline of 3-1. An own goal by Souprayen, and goals by both of our ailing ACL players, Milik and Ghoulam, sealed the deal for Napoli.

 

Match Preview:

Napoli will be at home to open the second half of the season, after being crowned “Winter Champions” in Italy this season. A loss mid-week to Atalanta in the Coppa Italia was frustrating, but coach Maurizio Sarri has tunnel visioned his focus to Serie A.

Hellas come into this match struggling. Currently sitting 19th in the league table, and having won only 2 of their last 10 league matches, it could be an uphill battle for the side from Verona.

Probable Formations:

Napoli(4-3-3): Reina; Maggio, Albiol, Koulibaly, Hysaj; Allan, Jorginho, Hamsik; Callejon, Mertens, Insigne

Hellas Verona(4-2-3-1): Nicolas; Ferrari, Heurtaux, Caracciolo, Caceres; Zuculini, Buchel; Romulo, Bessa, Verde; Kean
