Match prediction and football betting tips for Leicester City vs Napoli, Europa League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the King Power Stadium, Leicester on the 16th of September 2021.
This is going to be the first time that Leicester City is playing against Napoli and it has all the makings of an exciting match. Leicester City will be buoyed by its performance against Manchester City where a single goal from Bernardo Silva was the difference between the two teams. Napoli has been in fine form and is relentless in attack. It is going to test the Leicester defense just as much as Manchester City.
With two goals in each of the Serie A matches that it has played so far, Napoli can be counted upon to score some goals in this match as well. Leicester City can be expected to be put up a strong defense once more and also get a goal in return.
We think a Draw seems to be the most likely outcome for this match.
Bet on the Draw in this match.
This match is unlikely to be a very high-scoring one but we would still recommend you to play it a bit safe and bet on under 3.5 goals to be scored. Both Leicester and Napoli have the attack needed to get through the opposition defense. The fact that this is the toughest match for both teams will make them a bit more cautious. As a result, a safety-first approach is more likely than an all-out attack from either team.
This is a bet that we really like for this match. Napoli has scored 2 goals in each of the Serie A matches that it has played and while Leicester has not been as prolific, it is going to be playing in front of a raucous home crowd to give it a boost. We think Napoli is quite likely to score in this match and the real risk is whether Leicester City will get on the board. With Vardy and Daka upfront likely in the starting eleven, Leicester should be able to get a goal at least as well.
