Napoli vs Legia Warsaw – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Napoli continue their search for a first victory in Group C when they take on Legia Warsaw. Read our top three expert predictions for this week’s fixture below.

These odds from 888sport were correct at the time of writing.

Under 3.5 Goals

With two wins from two games, Legia Warsaw are the surprise pace-setters in Group C and their success so far has been built on stout defending. Legia are yet to concede a goal in the Europa League Group Stage and their well-marshalled backline should make life tough for Napoli in Italy this week. Each of Legia’s first two matches produced just a single strike and the low-scoring nature of their assignments to date makes the under 3.5 goals market an interesting prospect at 8/11 this week.

Half Time Result: Napoli

Napoli need to kickstart their continental campaign this week following a poor return of one point from their first two games in Group C, and though we expect margins to be relatively slim in Naples, we’re backing the hosts to establish a first-half lead. Napoli were ahead at the interval in two of their last three tussles on home soil and with their need for victory stark, we’re anticipating another fast start here.

Half Time/Full Time: Napoli/Napoli

If Napoli do secure a first-half advantage, they should be able to see the second half of the game out to claim their crucial first win in Group C. The Partenopei have won four of their five matches at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium this term and their strength at home should be a crucial factor in determining the outcome of Thursday’s game. With that considered, backing the hosts in the half time/full time market this week appeals at the prices on offer.

Napoli team news

Stanislav Lobotka, Andrea Petagna and Kevin Malcuit are all expected to miss Thursday’s game for Napoli. Mario Rui is suspended following his red card in the club’s last Europa League fixture. Napoli lost 3-2 to Spartak Moscow in that game after Rui was sent off in the 30th minute. Luciano Spalletti will know just how important Thursday’s game against Legia is after Napoli’s limp start in the group.

Legia Warsaw team news

Bartosz Kapustka is Legia’s only major injury concern ahead of Thursday’s fixture. Legia Warsaw upset the odds on matchday two when they took the scalp of Premier League side Leicester City in Poland. With two wins from two games, Legia sit proudly at the top of a group that most observers tipped them to struggle in.
