Partinopei top the Serie A standings after another impressive attacking showing in front of the home crowd on Saturday evening when they’ve bagged four past top-four rivals Lazio. It was the eighth consecutive win for Maurizio Sarri and his men who still have the pole position being a single point above the defending champions Juventus at the top.

Dries Mertens has been the standout performer in the last couple of months as he notched five goals in last four appearances for Napoli. The Belgian winger has also added three goals in a decent Champions League campaign which has seen Partinopei barely missing out on the top two finish in the group with Manchester City and Shakhtar Donetsk.

RB Leipzig have had a much easier group, but they only came third behind Besiktas and Porto. The main problem for Ralph Hassehuttl is keeping things tight at the back, but the Austrian manager seems to have done a decent job on this field of late since the Bulls have kept clean sheets in back-to-back league ties against Borussia Monchengladbach and Augsburg to regain the second place in the Bundesliga standings.

Napoli vs RB Leipzig: Head-to-head

This will be the first ever head to head clash between these two sides.

Napoli vs RB Leipzig: Prediction

Napoli have been just too good so far in the season and we just have to see them as favourites both on the night and over two legs.

Leipzig’s defensive line will be on a huge test on Thursday and we doubt they’ll be able to resist the red-hot attack of Serie A leaders here.

We’ll thus go with Napoli to win & Napoli to net two or more goals as our main betting options here.
