Napoli vs Manchester City – UEFA Champions League : In one of the matches of this 4th round of the Champions’ League group stage…
Napoli, 3rd place of this group F, meets Manchester City, 1st place of this same group, in Italy, on a match that can seal the English’s qualification to the next stage of the competition, if everything goes in favour of them.
The home team also don’t have a lot of margin for error, since they have a 3-point disadvantage for Shakhtar, who sits in 2nd place of this group.
Maurizio Sarri won’t be able to count with Milik while Pep Guardiola won’t be able to count with Kompani and Mendy.
The Italian team continues their notable performance this season, leading the Serie A, something that they haven’t been able to translate that well into the Champions League,
where the team is currently struggling at the moment. However, that can change if they are able to win the remaining matches of this group stage, namely beating Shakhtar, their direct rivals so far.
The team presents one of the most beautiful and elegant football styles this season, but now we must understand if it will be enough to get something more in terms of titles and achievements.
As for Manchester City, they are having clearly the better campaign ever since the Sheik invested on the club,
sitting isolated at the top of the Premier League and also at the top of their Champions’ League group, while also still being present in every competition they played this season.
Guardiola’s team is coming off a remarkable streak of 13 wins in a row (one of them in extra-time, against Wolves), which means now we’ll have to see when they will be able to find a team capable of stopping them effectively.
Napoli vs Manchester City – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Since this is a match with a lot at stake, I believe we’ll have a good footballing show, much like the one we’ve witnessed at the Etihad Stadium 2 weeks ago, on a match with a lot of quality from both sides and some goals.
I believe that both sides will try to play this match with the eyes on the opponents’ goal, which leads me to believe that this will be a high-scoring affair.
