Match preview of Napoli's home game against Chievo in Serie A on Saturday.

Napoli, who are still in the hunt for an unlikely Serie A title win, host struggling Chievo on Saturday evening looking to close the 12-point and four-point gaps to Juventus and Roma respectively.

The hosts have won seven of their last 10 league games at Stadio San Paolo and are unbeaten in Serie A since November 23.

Chievo are just about out of the bottom three on goal difference, but recent form is alarming. They have lost three of their last five Serie A games and have scored just four goals in the process.

For the hosts, Federico Fernandez returns from suspension and should start, but there is a doubt over Pepe Reina with both Valon Behrami and Giandomenico Mesto likely to miss out.
