Barcelona – Napoli Free Betting Tips
On Thursday in the Europa League we will have a duel that we would have expected to meet rather in the Champions League. Barcelona, the team that for the first time in the last 21 years failed to qualify from the Champions League groups, receives the visit of Napoli, this year the team played only in the Europa League.
Barcelona is going through a period of rebuilding the team, the team coached by Xavi did not have the start of the season that he wanted both in the Premier League and in the Champions League.
In La Liga, the Catalans started with the left, but now they seem to start playing well again, being undefeated in the last 8 stages, stages in which they gathered 4 victories and 4 draws.
In the last 3 stages, they won on the field of Deportivo Alaves (0-1), on the Camp Nou in front of Atletico Madrid (4-2) and drew on the field of the rival Espanyol (2-2).
In the Champions League groups, they ranked 3rd in a group that also included Bayern Munich, Benfica and Dynamo Kiev, the Ukrainians being the only ones that Barcelona managed to defeat.
On the other hand, Napoli played in the Europa League this season after losing 4th place in the last stage of last season, when they drew at home against Hellas Verona (2-2).
They had a good first part of the season, and at the moment they are ranked 3rd in Serie A, where they are undefeated in the last 6 stages, accumulating 4 victories and 2 draws with the score of 1-1 made on the field of Juventus and at home against to Inter.
In the Europa League, the Neapolitans finished 2nd in Group C, with Spartak Moscow, Leicester and Legia Warsaw as opponents, and being defeated only by the leader Spartak Moscow (both in the round (2-3) and in return (2-1)).
I will bet on an Under 2.5 score in this match, I think that Napoli will block Barcelona’s attacking attempts and will aim to solve the qualification problem in Italy.
UNDER 2.5 GOALS – Odds: 2.20
