Stadium: Diego Armando Maradona (Naples)
Napoli made life difficult for the Europa League play-offs when they lost twice to Spartak Moscow. Luciano Spalletti’s side must beat English side Leicester at home by all means. Can the Neapolitans do it?Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
Napoli have squad problems
Napoli’s results have dropped by the middle of the season. This is not surprising, considering the seriousness of the losses in the Neapolitan squad. Victor Osimhen, Lorenzo Insigne and Kalidou Koulibaly have missed their last matches through injury. This trio will not appear in their upcoming clash with Leicester.
Last weekend Napoli lost 2-3 at home to Atalanta in the Italian championship. So Napoli lost points for the second successive weekend. Before losing to Atalanta, Napoli finished 2-2 away to Sassuolo. After a disappointing start, Napoli are now sitting in first place in Serie A, sitting in third place.
Leicester have a disappointing away period
Like Napoli, Leicester managed to gain only 1 point in the previous two rounds of the national championship. First, Brendan Rodgers’ side were 2-2 down to Southampton and then lost 1-2 to Aston Villa. The Foxes played both of those games away. They sit 11th after 15 games in the English Premier League.
In the Europa League, Leicester perform much better than in the domestic league. Before the match in Naples, the Foxes are top of the quartet and will qualify for the play-offs of the tournament, even with a draw.
Expert Betting Tips
Napoli have little chance of winning the upcoming game. There are too many serious losses in the Neapolitans’ squad. There is simply no team in European football at the moment that can easily survive the loss of so many key performers. Insigne, Osimhen, and Koulibaly are certainly among them. Leicester were close to defeating Napoli at home and will get their way in the away match.
