MANY CHANGES, ONE CERTAINTY – Everything is ready for the debut of the brand new Napoli in this Serie A. He has changed a lot, the president De Laurentiis, there are no longer the four veterans Koulibaly, Insigne, Ospina and Mertens. Fabian Ruiz, who is in talks with PSG, will probably also leave. they have arrived to replace them Kim, Kvaratskhelia and Simeone, as well as Ostigard and Olivera. The captain of the new course will be Giovanni Di Lorenzo. In short, almost everything has changed, but there is still one huge milestone, a security that has the name of Luciano Spalletti.
THE OPPONENT – The first opponent of this season will be the Verona of the now ex Simeone. Even the Venetians have undergone an important transformation, starting from the bench, with Cioffi who replaced Tudor. Three key elements such as Casale, Cancellieri and the Cholito. They have arrived Henry, Djuric and Piccoli to give consistency to the attack. The module should remain the same but the philosophy with which it will be interpreted will change, with a lower center of gravity and two heavy, less mobile points.
THE DATA – The Neapolitans they have always won the opening race in the last five years, but they never made it to six in this particular row. With a victory, the new course of Napoli would immediately start with a record. It would be a reassuring sign that this team has been built to complete the good things done in recent years, renewing, but without starting from scratch.
