The Campania outfit might have dropped to Europe’s second tier competition but their dominance in the Italian top-flight looks set to aid them here

The Europa League presents a chance for Napoli to win silverware this season and are quoted at odds of (2.15) with LionsBet for a first leg advantage.

Die Rotten Bullen did have a decent maiden campaign in Europe’s premier club competition although it could only see them finish third in Group G behind Besiktas and FC Porto.

Both sides playing to a stalemate is valued at a chunky (3.60).

Maurizio Sarri’s men are favourites here for the reason that they have won their last eight games on the bounce. For that, they are (1.25) to avoid defeat on their turf.
