Napoli vs PSG
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 6 November 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadion San Paolo (Naples).
Napoli host PSG in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining outings of the evening in the Champions League.
Partenopei delivered a brave attacking display two weeks ago when they arrived to Paris as underdogs given PSG’s dominant performances in Ligue 1.
However, the difference between French top flight and European’s top notch football was proved last Wednesday when the star-studded Tuchel’s side failed to do much to harm Napoli in the final third. We can’t even say Les Parisiens dominated the pitch throughout the 90 minutes of play.
Carlo Ancelotti prepared his men perfectly for one of the toughest trips on the continent. Napoli were just moments away from snatching a massive three-pointer at Parc Des Princes, but Angel Di Maria’s marvellous strike from outside the box brought the French champions back on level terms in the dying minutes of the affair. Lorenzo Insigne and Dries Mertens previously bagged goals for Napoli in a 2-2 draw.
Napoli vs PSG: Head-to-head
- The above-described match was the first official head to head affair between the two teams.
- They met each other four years ago, but it was in a friendly. PSG took a 1-2 victory back then.
Napoli vs PSG: Prediction
The draw at Parc Des Princes left the group wide open with just two points separating three contenders for the knockout stage. Assuming Liverpool will ease past Red Star Belgrade on the same day, the result of this match will have a huge impact on the final table standings.
Napoli are in a better position even though they failed to see off Red Star Belgrade on the opening day (0-0 draw in the Serbian capital). They will come into the game in the highest of spirits following a demolishing 5-1 victory over Empoli on Friday evening. The win brought them just three points below Juventus (who have a game in hand, though) at the top of the ladder.
We just have to expect goals here given both teams have a tremendous firepower on display in the final third. The value is with Napoli to net two or more goals at 2.10, while BTTS is definitely a banker bet here.
