Napoli have named about as strong a lineup as you can hope to see from them right now against Chievo Verona.

Napoli absolutely have to beat Chievo Verona at the San Paolo on Saturday. Not just because the Flying Donkeys have been something of a bogey team for them over the last three years, but because this five-game winless run got old a long time ago and it needs to be stopped, now.

It's not even just the length of the winless run -- Napoli can't afford to drop any more points right now, because they have to stay close to Juventus in order to take advantage of any slips in form the bianconeri suffer in this title race. At three points back, they can keep the pressure on, but at five points or six points or eight points, there's no real ability to mount a challenge.

So just win, Napoli. There are no more excuses. You're out of all other competitions, so your focus is 100% in the here and now. Go kick the crap out of Chievo.

Lineups

Napoli: Reina; Hysaj, Chiriches, Koulibaly, Ghoulam; Lopez, Jorginho, Hamsik; Callejon, Higuain, Insigne

Chievo Verona: Bizzarri; Frey, Dainelli, Cesar, Cacciatore; Radovanovic, Rigoni, Castro; Birsa; Mpoku, Pellissier
