Hellas Verona vs Napoli - Italian Serie A, Round 19
Stadium: Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi, Verona

Hellas Verona are the newcomers to Serie A, who have been doing suprisingly well so far. Before the start of the season no one expected them to gather 32 points in 18 games. During the last round the team of the manager Mandorlini won away from home 3:1 against Udinese - Toni put his name twice to the scoresheet in that match having already scored 9 goals this season. Out of the last four games Hellas Verona did not lose a single one - three were won and one drawn. Verona may boast about their home form - in front of their own supporters they lost only one game; the other eight were won. Regarding the goal difference the have scored 34 goals which is a pretty good amount, yet conceded as many as 27. 
  • Probable lineups Hellas Verona: Rafael – Cacciatore, Moras, Maietta, Agostini – Jorginho, Romulo, Halfredsson – Iturbe, Toni, Gomez.
SSC Napoli team ended their Champions League's adventure having gained 12 points and not advancing to the next round. When it comes to the Italian ground they won their last home gay 2:0 against Sampdoria thanks to two goals scored by Mertens. Yet, it is Higuaín, who is their most efficient scorer - 9 goals so far. As for the last five games they managed to win three and the other two ended in a draw. The goal balance 38:20 speaks in favour of a solid offensive side and not such a bad defence. Being 10 points behind leading Juventus they are still considered by some as potential title candidates. Marek Hamsik can make a possible return to the squad.
  • Probable lineups SSC Napoli: Rafael – Maggio, Fernandez, Albiol, Armero – Inler, Dzemaili – Callejon, Pandev, Mertens – Higuain
