Napoli News and Form – Can Napoli beat Salzburg again?

Napoli will be relatively pleased with their efforts so far. They took a home win over Liverpool to start their campaign and then last time out took a 3-2 win over Salzburg. But while they have beaten the two stronger teams, they did have a slip up when they went to group rank outsiders Genk and played out a 0-0 draw. That was missed points. But they head into the next round of action top of the table by a point and three points on Tuesday would put them within touching distance of the round of sixteen.

Napoli v Salzburg Predictions

Napoli to win: The Partenopei’s win in Austria was impressive against a very good home team who are full of goals. The Italians are likely to be a bit tighter back on home soil where they have beaten Liverpool already. They can get the job done against Salzburg and take a giant step towards the round of sixteen. Home win.
