Knowing that winning the Scudetto is all but a dream this season, Napoli manager Rafa Benitez will have his side focused on the Europa League and will be keen to take a win on the road at Swansea City.
After a couple of hiccups in the first week of February, the Baby Blues have rebounded with three straight wins against AC Milan, Roma, and a victory over Sassuolo over the past two weeks.
They currently sit in third in Serie A and were the the first team in Champions League history to notch 12 points in the group stage and still be eliminated. They are 8-3-4 on the road in Champions League and domestic league matches this season. Those four losses were against much more quality sides like Dortmund, Arsenal, Roma, and Juventus.
William Hill has Napoli favoured today with odds of 2.15 available for the outright win and 3.40 for the double result to crack. I like the Italians to pick up the win in the first leg.
A draw result is available at 3.30 in the 1x2, while the both teams to score and draw combo makes that 4.20.
The hosts are listed at 3.40 to win. They are coming off a 3-1 away loss to Everton in the Premier League and have the fourth most conceded goals at home in the 20-team league. They barely made it to the knockout stages and I don't envision Jonathan de Guzman and Co. delivering the win today.
The O/U market sees 1.91 offered on both sides, and I usually prefer the under for first legs.
Gonzalo Higuain is offered at 2.00 to score a goal today. The Argentine international has three goals in his last three matches in all competitions in addition to his four goals from the Champions League group stage.
