After being disappointed by their failure to win the Serie A championship the previous season, Napoli will kick off their campaign against Hellas Verona.
At Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi, meantime, the summer of transition saw the hiring of Gabriele Cioffi to take Igor Tudor’s place, who received a chance at Marseille.

Napoli was in contention to win the top division for a significant portion of the previous campaign, but ultimately finished seven points behind eventual champions AC Milan.
This time, though, Luciano Spalletti won’t have players like Kalidou Koulibaly, Lorenzo Insigne, or Dries Mertens at his disposal, thus another difficulty will be the goal.
Given the business done by Juventus and Roma, it is still unclear whether Napoli’s replacements can help the team stay in the top four after losing three of its most illustrious players.
Although Napoli had a successful preseason, their best victory came against Girona, a La Liga newcomer. The first few weeks of the season could be difficult for Napoli because they will travel to Fiorentina and Lazio by September 3.
Similar to the guests, Verona has experienced a lot of change this summer due to the replacing of Tudor with Cioffi. The Croatian manager’s transfer to Marseille was justified by his 37 victories and 11 losses, but the shift, which occurred in July, was hardly ideal for I Gialloblu.
However, there is a perception that Cioffi deserves to be in work for 2022–23 having excelling at Udinese on a caretaker basis, and the Verona management will feel confident that they can continue to push for a top–half finish.
There have been some major arrivals and departures in terms of transactions, but the greatest departure appears to be still to come with Giovanni Simeone, the league’s best scorer last season, on the verge of joining Napoli.
Cioffi will be hoping that his team’s enthusiasm for the start of the new season will aid them to a successful start under his leadership, even though that is far from ideal ahead of such a challenging first match.
This Napoli team is somewhat in the dark this season because certain important players are missing. However, we believe that the visitors should have enough quality to prevail in what could turn out to be a close match because Verona is now under new management.
