Napoli vs Genk Match Preview

Napoli host Genk for their Champions League clash on Tuesday evening with a nine-match winless run behind them and everything to play for on the final day of the Group Stage, with a two-point gap to 3rd placed Salzburg breathing down their necks in search of an upset.

Partenopei have seen a 1-2 home loss to Bologna early in December and they failed to bounce yet again, only snatching a point at Udinese (1-1) on Saturday. They have been scoring goals but this wasn’t enough to fully capitalize, with just seven draws and two losses seen since late October.

Genk do, on the other hand, come into the match on the back of a 1-2 win over Cercle Brugge but they’ve struggled to make an impact in Group E and the crowd at San Paolo Stadium will hope to see that as a difference. They have been conceding numbers of goals on the regular and we feel the visitors could have trouble coping now as well.

Blue-Whites have seen losses to Salzburg (1-4), Sint-Truiden (1-2), and Antwerp (on penalties after a 3-3 draw) over the past two weeks and this will surely affect the dressing room atmosphere. They’ve long lost the chances to make the top 3 cut and this could mean an open and attacking approach to the fixture on the day.

We feel Napoli will be able to outgun the Belgian rivals and finally end the unwanted streak here, as we go for a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score at 29/20 with BetVictor. Napoli have struggled to keep clean sheets and Genk should have open spaces to explore too.

With that in mind, we’re going for a contrasting occasion than what we’ve seen in the sides’ first clash. This should mean goals and we’re backing such a claim with Over 3.5 Goals FT, which comes at 10/11 with bet365 and has caught the eye of many in the know.
