Napoli Prediction – Can Napoli confirm 2nd place?

Progression from the group stages and into the knockout rounds of the Champions League is firmly in Napoli’s own hands as they prepare for this Matchday 6 clash against bottom club Genk who have captured just 1 point in their campaign to date.

Napoli will be in confident mood that they can get the necessary result here this evening as they still remain the only team in Group E yet to taste defeat in these group matches and includes wins against Liverpool and Salzburg as well as three draws which have helped them into 2nd spot and more importantly, 2 points ahead of their closest rivals, Salzburg.

Form on home turf at their Stadio San Paolo ground in the Champions League has also been impressive as the hosts have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 9 matches which was a 4-2 loss to Manchester City a couple of seasons ago.

Tuesday night’s hosts, Napoli, were held to a 0-0 draw away at Genk in the previous corresponding fixture, but will be keen to assert their authority in this encounter as they look to close in on the knockout rounds.

Genk Prediction – Can Genk pull off shock on Matchday 6?

It’s been a Champions League campaign to forget for the Belgian visitors, Genk, as they sit rock-bottom of Group E with just 1 point to their name which was thanks to the 0-0 draw at home to tonight’s hosts, Napoli on Matchday 2.

A heavy 6-2 thrashing at the hands of Salzburg in their opening match of the group stage set the tone for the remainder of the campaign for Genk who went on to suffer further losses to Liverpool home and away and also Salzburg home and away too.

The bigger picture shows us that Genk are now without a win in the Champions League from their last 11 matches overall in the competition, while results away from home have been disastrous in recent times as the Belgian outfit have lost their last 6 away ties on the trot.

The manner of their defeats is also worrying too as they’ve conceded a total of 24 goals and scored just 4 in reply with heavy defeats incurred at Chelsea 5-0, Valencia 7-0 and Salzburg 6-2.

Can they avoid another heavy defeat on Tuesday night?


Key-Facts – Napoli vs Genk

  • Napoli have lost just 1 of their last 9 home ties in the CL
  • Genk have lost their last 6 away ties on the trot in the CL
  • The previous meeting between these two sides ended in a 0-0 stalemate


Betting Tips Verdict

Napoli will be keen to stamp their authority on this match early and they should not only win this one but goals should also feature.
