SSC Napoli will be hosting the Group C leaders Leicester City F.C. on the final day of the group stage of the Europa Cup at the Stadio San Paolo in Naples, better known as Stadio Maradona.
The Foxes are currently leading the group at this stage by a razor-thin margin, with just two points separating the first and last teams. The prospects of Leicester qualifying for the next round are pretty bright. If they win the game, they will sail through, and the same will be the case if both the games, theirs as well as the game in Warsaw end in a draw.
Things are a bit difficult for the Partenopei, as their future will be more heavily reliant on the result of the game between Spartak Moskva and Legia. In addition to winning, they will require Moskva to lose in order to make it to the next round. In case they fail to finish at the top, things might turn difficult, as the runner-up of each group will be required to face the third-placed teams from the Champions League in the Play-offs.
Their previous encounter at the Kings Power Stadium had ended in a draw with both teams scoring two goals.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Napoli vs Leicester City UEFA Europa League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Diego Armando Maradona, Napoli, on the 9th of December 2021.
Napoli has been rather inconsistent this season, starting with a draw against Leicester and losing against Moskva in the next game. But then they picked up some form, and beat Legia Warsaw in both, home and away games, before slumping back to another defeat against Moskva.
Similarly, the Foxes started on a mediocre note, with a draw against Napoli and a loss against Legia. However, they have picked up form by scoring a win and a draw against Moskva, and a thumping 3-1 win against Legia.
The game is set to be even more exciting, as both teams will be making selections from a depleted squad. As many as 7 players from Leicester will be unavailable after testing positive for CoViD 19, Naples has only 14 fit players, with names like Koulibaly, Osimhen, and Fabian Ruiz unavailable due to injury.
This is a make or break game for the hosts, as nothing short of a victory will help them make it to the next stage. with many of the key players missing from action, it seemed difficult for them to score a victory, and a draw was the most likely option.
But now, since so many regulars from Leicester missing the game, Napoli will be looking to make the most of this opportunity and will go all out to score a victory and finish as the toppers of the group.
Bet on Napoli to win.
With so many players missing from both teams, the chances of mistakes being made on the field are very high. This is why we think that both teams will be able to convert at least one chance and get on the scoresheet. Both of the two teams have also been quite prolific in front of goal in recent matches without being the most dependable in defense.
