Napoli vs. Verona – Result prediction (19.10.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Napoli and Verona haven’t drawn in Serie A since April 1988; since then there has been 15 wins for the Partenopei and three for the Veneti. Napoli started their Serie A (SA) campaign by scoring 13 goals in their opening four matches, but that’s drastically dropped to just two across the following three. In fact Napoli have now picked up back-to-back competitive goalless draws, yet encouragingly, they face an opponent here that’s lost their last ten SA trips to this venue, conceding 29 goals. Napoli have won their last 10 Serie A home games against Verona: only against Como (11) have they had a longer run of home wins in their history of the competition. Furthermore, Napoli have scored exactly two goals in three of four competitive home games this season. In each of those four fixtures, and in their last five SA games, Napoli have managed a first-half clean sheet. That was also the case in eight of their last ten home SA H2Hs. Napoli have kept a clean sheet only once in their last nine home league games, after keeping five clean sheets in their previous seven. Napoli have picked up 13 points in this Serie A campaign; the Partenopei had collected more points at this stage in each of their last three top-flight seasons (14 in 2016/17, 21 in 2017/18 and 15 in 2018/19).

Along the same lines, Hellas Verona have failed to score a first-half goal in four of their last six SA matches. Six of Verona’s seven SA fixtures have produced under 2.5 total match goals, with only Juventus able to score multiple goals against them. A tight start could be on the cards, as Verona have gone into half-time level in five of their seven SA games – three were goalless. Verona have picked up nine points in this Serie A campaign: in the three points-per-win era, the Gialloblu have been relegated at the end of the season only once when they have collected so many points in their first seven Serie A matches (2001/02). The visitors have scored exactly one goal in each of their last six SA road trips, with five of those producing goals at both ends. Furthermore, eight of Verona’s last ten SA away matches saw them concede over 1.5 goals, but only once in three trips this season.
