Genk vs Napoli Match Preview
Napoli travel to Genk for their Champions League clash on Wednesday evening looking to build on the weekend success and a return to the winning ways, where they beat Brescia (2-1) with goals from Dries Mertens and Kostas Manolas to bounce from a mid-week shock loss to Cagliari (0-1).
Partenopei have been scoring numbers of goals on the regular and the loss only ended a streak of three wins we’ve seen beforehand. Carlo Ancelotti has seemingly struggled to set up a defensively consistent side but the attacking line has been delivering, which will still give them ground to build on in Belgium.
Genk have seen an exciting yet very disappointing loss at RB Salzburg (6-2) and now look for their first points in Group E, having recuperated since and connected a three-match unbeaten streak – including a 3-3 draw at Sint-Truiden over the weekend where they gambled away a three-goal lead in the last half-hour.
Blauw-Wit have been scoring goals as well and this goes to point towards a thriller in the making as well, despite their struggles for stability. They’ve bagged a total of 12 goals in their last five outings, including just as exciting wins against KV Oostende (3-1) and Ronse (0-3) over the past two weeks.
Napoli will be much more of a challenge, though, and we feel the visitors have what it takes to snatch all three points here. We will thus stick our necks out for an Away win and a Yes on Both teams to score, which combines to an enticing 33/20 with .
We have seen both sides enjoy good spells in the final third and this obviously has us making a case for a high-scoring occasion. With that in mind, we’re now backing Over 3.5 Goals FT at 23/20 Ladbrokes, which feels like value at this point as well.
