Match Preview & Team News
Free-scoring Salzburg host Napoli in one of the most exciting third-round fixtures on Wednesday evening at Red Bull Arena. The hosts showed an amazing fighting spirit to come back from a three.goal deficit against the reigning champions Liverpool last time out,m but were denied with a late Mohamed Salah goal which won it for the Reds.
The Austrians now share second place in a highly competitive Group E with three points from two games. Only Bayern Munich have scored more goals than then in two Champions League outings (10). Jesse Marsch’s men were held to a 1-1 draw by Sturm Graz in the weekend’s Bundesliga affair. It was the first game of the season which saw them fail to score more than one goal.
Erling Haaland is the competition’s joint-top scorer with Bayern’s Serge Gnabry who notched four goals in the drubbing of Tottenham Hotspur in London. The Norwegian forward returned from injury on Saturday as he played an hour in the mentioned draw at Sturm.
Napoli began the campaign with a 2-0 victory over Liverpool, but they failed to back it up playing only a goalless draw away at Genk last time out. Carlo Ancelotti’s men have done well to keep things quiet at the back since the start of the season, but they clearly have issues to convert at the opposite end.
Partinopei ended a streak of two straight goalless draws in Serie A by beating Hellas Verona 2-0 at the weekend. Arkadiusz Milik, who wasted numerous chances in Belgium, completed a brace on the occasion.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Salzburg claimed a 3-1 victory over Napoli when the teams met each other in the last 16 round of the previous Europa League term in March. They are enjoying a fantastic form and we find the value in backing the home win or draw double chance pick at the 1/2 odds.
Goals Market Prediction
The alternative bet is Salzburg to score two or more goals at the odds of 5/6 since they have done so in all but one of 13 matches across competitions this season.
