Napoli Preview – Routine home win for Gli Azzurri?

By their high standards, Napoli had a disappointing Serie A campaign last term, finishing down in seventh. Gli Azzurri missed out on the UEFA Champions League. However, they are one of the favourites to win the 2020-21 Europa League, booking their place in next year’s Champions League as a result.

Napoli have made a decent start to their league season, winning three of their opening four Serie A matches. The club from Naples have seen off Parma, Genoa and Atalanta, scoring 12 and shipping one in the process. However, they were recently beaten 3-0 by Juventus.

Our betting prediction:
Napoli to win both halves

(odds taken 1642 GMT, Wednesday 21 October)

With a trip to Real Sociedad to come in their next Group F match, Napoli will be eager to start with a home win on Thursday. At the time of writing, Gennaro Gattuso’s men are the big 1/6 favourites to take maximum points from this one.

AZ Alkmaar Preview – Dutch side to crash to a heavy defeat in Naples?

Arne Slot’s AZ Alkmaar finished in a respectable second place in the Eredivisie last season. The Dutch leagues were cut short, of course, but AZ qualified for the Champions League by finishing second to Ajax on goal difference.

Despite beating Viktoria Plzen in their opening Champions League qualifier, a 2-0 defeat to Dynamo Kiev condemned Alkmaar to this season’s Europa League.

The Cheeseheads have made a strange start to their league campaign, drawing all four of their matches so far. Slot’s boys have scored ten and shipped ten at the other end.

AZ Alkmaar are an unpredictable team at present. Despite keeping up with Ajax before the 2019-20 season came to an abrupt end in March, AZ are already nine points off the top of the table this term. Still, can they leave their league form behind and pick up a shock win in the Europa League in midweek?
