Napoli – Manchester City Champions League Prediction and Preview: 1st November 2017
There are two teams with excellent attacks, but they also have weaknesses in defense. In principle, both have a similar style: they are accustomed to always score more than the opponent, they are constantly using 3 players on the attack stage, and this leads to free space behind the midfielders. It will be a very interesting duel for supremacy here.
Three “GGs” in direct duels!
In the three direct matches played so far between the two, the “GG” bet has been a winner every time and is likely to be so. In 2011, two matches were played in UCL, 2-1 for Napoli and 1-1 for England, while the match was back to Pep Guardiola’s boys, score 2-1. There will be Jesus, De Bruyne and Sane, who are in good shape in the Premier League.
City has won its last 3 Champions League matches, but would like to contend with a draw in Italy. In the last 3 games played by Napoli in UCL have always scored at least 3 goals, and the style of the two leaves no room for doubt: we will see many occasions, corners and potential goals. There are no significant batch issues and each comes with the starters.
