Soccer News – Napoli-Chievo
Napoli hosts Chievo in a game from the 31th round of the Italian Serie A.
Napoli are currently 2nd in the Serie A with 74 points and they are trailing on 4 points behind the leader and champion Juventus. For them it would be extremely difficult to win the title in this situation, but for sure they will continue fighting until they have a chance.
So far Napoli have won 23 of their Serie A matches, doing 5 draws and losing twice. In their last five matches Napoli are not as consistent as they were, which is the reason why they gave up the first place to Juve. They have a record of two wins, two draws and one loss in their last five games. In their last match Maurizio Sarri’s boys made a dissapointing 1-1 draw during the visit to Sassuolo.
Chievo on the other hand are 14th in the Serie A standings with 29 points. So far they have a record of 7 wins, 8 draws and 15 defeats. Right now Chievo are 5 points above the 18th Crotone and the relegation zone, so they still can’t feel completely safe about their future in the Calcio. They still need to win some more points until the end of the season.
In their last five games the Flying Donkeys won once, made one draw and suffered three defeats. In their last game they made a 1-1 draw against Sassuolo at home.
Although Chievo needs to win some points until the end of the campaign, Napoli are the heavy favourite in this clash, especially at home. Maurizio Sarri’s team do not have any other option, but to continue fighting for the title while it still have some chance to win. And without a question, winning against Chievo is a must.
