Manchester City will be looking to take a major step towards the Champions League knockout stages when they welcome Napoli to the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday.
Top of Group F with six points from their opening two games, Pep Guardiola’s men are 8/13 (1.62) favourites with dabblebet to maintain their 100 per cent record by coming out on top here.
Having suffered their only defeat of the season away to Shakhtar Donetsk in their previous Champions League game on the road, the Partenopei are available at 15/4 (4.75) to pull off an impressive victory in this one.
The sides shared a 1-1 draw in their only previous encounter on this ground back in 2011, and there are odds of 10/3 (4.33) available on them playing out another stalemate on this occasion.
With both teams sitting top of their respective domestic leagues, this clash arguably represents the standout tie in this week’s Champions League fixture list.
Any neutrals tuning in should be treated to an extremely entertaining encounter between two of the top-scoring teams in Europe’s top five leagues so far; Man City are currently leading the list alongside Paris Saint-Germain with 29 domestic strikes, whilst Napoli sit just behind them on 26.
Having put seven goals past Stoke City on the weekend, the Citizens will back themselves to punish a defence that has kept just one clean sheet in 12 away games in this competition.
What’s more, Maurizio Sarri’s team will also feel confident of causing plenty of problems at the other end of the pitch considering the free-scoring form that has seen them score over three goals a match in Serie A so far.
With this in mind, odds of 17/20 (1.85) are not to be missed on over 3.5 goals being scored for a fourth Champions League game in five involving City, as well as a fourth in five for Napoli.
