Napoli vs Real Sociedad Betting Tips – Europa League: A high level duel is expected this next Thursday in a match counting for the Group F of the Europa League
Napoli vs Real Sociedad – with Napoli hosting the sensational team of this La Liga season, Real Sociedad, in the stadium now designated as Diego Armando Maradona.
Napoli are in the lead of Group F after drawing 1-1 in the Netherlands against AZ Alkmaar this past week.
Even with 10 points won so far, Napoli still don’t have the qualification secured, because their opponents for this Thursday match as well as AZ Alkmaar both have still the possibility to qualify, so playing at home the Italians will have to perform a convincing display, which may guarantee them a positive result.
Both teams know that this game is highly decisive, as they know that AZ can surpass either one of them, and “steal” a place in the next round.
The Neapolitans have been doing very well at home, and Gattuso certainly wants to keep this record, however he will find a Basque team in a very good moment.
Gennaro Gattuso should not yet count on Victor Osimhen, as the Nigerian striker is still recovering from an injury, while Dries Mertens should be part of the starting eleven for the Neapolitans.
After a sensational start to the season, Real Sociedad comes to this decisive match on Thursday going through a streak of four consecutive draws for all competitions.
Outside the Anoeta, the Basque formation have won four games, tied one and lost three of their last eight matches counting towards European competitions, and have also not conceded in four of their last five away games in the group stage.
For this reason, Imanol Alguacil the coach of the team, is confident that his players can leave Italy with a positive result, and he even said “we can beat any team and we are going to Italy to win”.
David Silva, Mikel Oyarzabal and Jon Guridi have been having physical problems lately, but it is still expected that Silva and Oyarzabal may have their chance to be part of the squad for this match.
