Competition: Serie A
Market: Napoli to beat Chievo
Odds: 2/5 @ Bet365
Following another hugely exciting round of Champions League games in midweek, club football returns to its more usual place of on the weekends. Italy’s Serie A is massively competitive both at the top and the bottom, and the game between Chievo and Napoli definitely pertains to the top half of the table, with the visitors currently sitting in first place.
Chievo have been in steady form this season and they are looking to continue a start that has seen them put some ground between themselves and the relegation zone. With four wins to go with their two draws and four defeats, Sunday’s hosts have accumulated 15 points, meaning they are nine clear of the relegation zone, but 16 short of their next opponents. A win over Napoli would really send a statement out to the rest of the teams that they are not there just to be passengers, but the home fans will know that it will be a very tall order to beat the leaders.
Napoli on the other hand have been outstanding this season. 11 games, 10 wins and a single draw have seen them top Serie A with 31 points, two clear of Inter Milan in second place. They have scored 32 times this season, while they have only conceded eight goals, giving them the best goal difference in the league. Although Chievo have home advantage, the league’s top team will fancy their chances of recording their 11th win, and Bet365 are giving Napoli odds of 2/5 to win this one.
