Salzburg – Napoli, Europa League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR SALZBURG - NAPOLI
Salzburg did not get a good result against Napoli in the first game and after a 3-0 loss, hardly their chances of continuing are real. Still, they are not in very good shape. They failed to defeat Sturm Graz in the last round and for the first time did not score a goal at home this season in Austria, but missed a penalty. However, Red Bull are champions and are bound to fight to the end, and we have seen all sorts of wonders in European tournaments, however unreal they seemed.
Napoli showed something quite interesting, namely that they will really make all their efforts in Europa League. After getting kicked in the Champions League groups, after just one loss in the last match and a goal difference, after dropping out of Coppa Italia a few weeks ago, having lost all the chances for the Serie A title after Juventus loss, EL remained their number 1 goal and this was seen against Sassuolo. Napoli came out with many reserves, so it’s logical why the match wasn’t won.
Napoli had no problems with Salzburg in the first game, but now they will be guests and have some problems at the back related to injuries. Our forecast is BTTS at 1.55. Logic is such that Salzburg have no time and will have to attack. Even if they concede a goal, they are expecting it, but they have to show their best in an offensive game. For Napoli, it does not matter whether they will concede 1 or 2 goals, because if they score 1, they have to lose 5-1 to get defeated, and this will not happen.
- Salzburg have no loss in an official match as host from 2016
- Napoli has scored 10 goals in the last 4 games in the Europa League
