There is a chance that this game may almost feel like an unnecessary distraction for Napoli as they seek to ensure they get through to the semi-finals of the Champions League next week.
Luciano Spalletti’s side host Hellas Verona on Serie A Matchday 30 knowing that they have a much bigger game coming up a few days later at home to AC Milan. Having lost the first leg 1-0 at San Siro they have work to do.
Verona look like the only side in the bottom three with any chance of climbing out of it but it would still be some escape. The Gialloblu did win last weekend against Sassuolo, but they will have a really tough task to get anything from the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona against the champions in waiting.
Napoli vs Hellas Verona: Predicted line-ups
There is expected to be some rotation from Luciano Spalletti for Saturday’s clash with Verona as he has his eyes set on the Champions League quarter-final second leg. With Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa and Kim Min-Jae are both suspended for that game, they will keep their places here.
Victor Osimhen is expected to only make the bench but that is good news in reference to the Milan clash.
Miguel Veloso and Giangiacomo Magnani are both suspended for Verona and Darko Lazovic is going to be evaluated in the run-up to kick-off.
Napoli predicted XI vs Verona (4-3-3): Meret; Di Lorenzo, Min-Jae, Ostigard, Olivera; Anguissa, Lobotka, Elmas; Politano, Raspadori, Zerbin.
Verona predicted XI vs Napoli (3-4-2-1): Montipo; Dawidowicz, Hien, Ceccherini; Faraoni, Tameze, Duda, Depaoli; Ngonge, Lasagna; Djuric.
