Manchester City v Napoli Betting: Back Sterling to continue his fine form in front of goal

With plenty of attacking talent on show, Al Hain-Cole thinks the England man offers the best value to strike in what should be a high-scoring game

Pitting the top scorers in the Premier League against Serie A’s most prolific side, Manchester City’s Champions League clash with Napoli on Tuesday should guarantee plenty of goalmouth action.
Having scored seven goals apiece in already this campaign, the Citizens’ deadly duo of Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus are joint 3/1 (4.00) favourites with bet365 to get the ball rolling at the Etihad Stadium.
Considering their irrepressible form, it is no surprise that the two strikers are both priced at narrow 8/13 (1.62) odds to strike anytime, although Aguero's place is in doubt as he continues to recover from a car crash last month. However, Pep Guardiola’s array of attacking talent means goals could come from anywhere on the pitch.

Also boasting seven goals to his name in all competitions, Raheem Sterling offers strong value at 7/5 (2.40) to hit the net for the second Champions League match in a row.
With six goals from just six starts so far, Leroy Sane 11/10 (2.10) is another sure to provide a threat, while Kevin De Bruyne 13/8 (2.63) is in the form of his life and will be at the centre of most of City’s best attacking moves.
At the other end of the pitch, Dries Mertens is undoubtedly the man to watch for the Partenopei and can be backed at 9/2 (5.50) to break the deadlock in Manchester.

The Belgium international has scored 43 goals in his last 44 starts for Maurizio Sarri’s side, so could make a sensible evens (2.00) anytime bet to get on the scoresheet here.
Having found the net five times so far this campaign, Lorenzo Insigne is a potentially lucrative 2/1 (3.00) longer shot to do so once again in this one, while Jose Callejon is another tempting option at 9/4 (3.25) considering he has struck six times so far himself.
Finally, Napoli captain Marek Hamsik is available at 3/1 (4.00) to equal Diego Maradona’s record goal haul of 115 for the club in dramatic circumstances with a high profile strike in this heavyweight clash.
