Napoli vs Leipzig – Europa League: The Neapolitans are in an excellent moment of form in the Italian Serie A
And this season they have a great opportunity to win that Serie A title, which hasn’t happened since 1990.
The team is coming off an incredible streak of matches, because in 11 matches they have only lost once, and curiously it was at home against Atalanta, in Coppa Italia.
Napoli had a negative showing on the Champions League, not getting more than a 3rd place in group F, finishing ahead of Feyenoord and behind Manchester City and Shakhtar Donetsk.
Maurizio Sarri has a problem to solve, which is whether he wants to win the Europa League or the Scudetto. I think he will have to make a decision, because it is very complicated to think about winning those 2 titles.
The Azzurri are on a good state of mind, and they will want to win in front of their fans.
Mertens and Machach, are suspended while Chiriches, Milik and Ghoulam are injured for this encounter. Their starting line-up should be: Reina – Maggio, Albiol, Koulibaly and Rui – Diawara, Allan and Hamsik – Callejón, Insigne and Zielinski.
The German side is a bit below the fantastic campaign they have made last season. The Bulls have felt a lot of difficulties away from home and in this match against Napoli, it will be complicated for them.
Despite the team currently sitting in 2nd place of the Bundesliga, their exhibitions are still very inconsistent.
Hasenhuttl, the team’s manager seems like he doesn’t have a lot of problems to set up his starting line-up, since only Halstenberg, who is injured, and Ilsanker, suspended, will be unavailable for this match,
which means they will practically be in full strength, being able to aspire to get a good result.
This way, their starting line-up should be: Gulácsi – Laimer, Orban, Upamecano and Klostermann – Demme, Keita, Sabitzer and Bruma – Werner and Augustin.
Napoli vs Leipzig – Betting Tip and Prediction:
It is the first time that these two sides face off. The Neapolitans, playing at home, are usually very strong. However, the Germans are very pragmatic in these matches.
The Azzurri play a football that pleases me so I’m betting on the hosts to win here.
