Napoli – Manchester City : Preview & Prediction
An interesting match in this day of Wednesday is the one played by Napoli and Manchester City for a new date in the Champions League (group stage).
In my opinion, there is no clear favorite on this occasion, since the two teams are even and offensive by nature. For this reason and knowing that the Neapolitans need to win as it is to qualify for the 8th finals, we advise you to play a few euros to the bet “both teams score”. Remember that “Citizens” know how to stand as visitors thanks to the hierarchy of their players and the work of coach Guardiola.
Take into account that Napoli has 3 points in the group, having to win as this match because it could complicate his pass to the next round. Remember that Shakhtar is 6 and could reach 9 if he defeats Feyenoord on Ukrainian territory. Of course, the team is still dapper and complicated to overcome thanks to his offensive quartet.
On the other hand, do not forget that the Italian team won their first home game in the Champions League, after defeating Feyenoord 3-1. It comes to beat Sassuolo 3-1 for Calcio, proving to be a lethal eleven when he plays in San Paolo.
Continuing with the analysis you should know that Manchester City has reaped the 9 units in play, demonstrating vertical and direct football when the ball is in attack. After that, he manages the ball very well, controlling the pace and possession. Little by little the hand of Pep Guardiola is more noticeable. It is expected that the team can take advantage of their opponent’s defensive errors, just as they did in the duel played in Etihad (2-1 win).
And finally we tell you that the “Citizens” won their first start in the competition, after defeating 0-4 at Feyenoord in Holland. For the Premier, comes from thrashing 0-3 at West Brom last Saturday. Considering this is an eleven that knows how to stand in this condition thanks to the hierarchy of its players.
After all that I said the game for the bet “both teams score” due to the following reasons: First because Italians and English have a similar game, to handle a lot of the ball and attack too much. Therefore, it is logical that the situations of goal alternate and that they can recover from a hypothetical initial disadvantage. Second, because the Neapolitan team has become very strong in San Paolo, it is vital to win the match to be able to qualify for the next stage of the competition. Ideally, his offensive quartet, which is led by Mertens, should appear. And third because Manchester City is a nice and explosive eleven thanks to the work of Pep Guardiola. Faced with this reality and knowing that the “Citizens” do not speculate on a visit, we believe that they will be able to score a goal or even win the match if they propose it. A 1-1 is expected at least, not ruling a 2-2 or a 2-1 victory for either side.
