RB Salzburg vs Napoli Preview
Napoli travel to Salzburg for their Matchday 3 Champions League clash looking to keep hold of the top spot in Group E, after earning four points in their first two outings as they beat Liverpool (2-0) with late goals from Dries Mertens and Fernando Llorente but were held to a goalless draw at Genk.
Partenopei have seen a seven-goal thriller in two Europa League 8th Finals against the rivals in March, only edging past them thanks to Arkadiusz Milik’s goal at this ground in a 4-3 aggregate win. Carlo Ancelotti’s men haven’t been able to impress at this ground, though, and will now want more as they come into the game on the back of a 2-0 win over Hellas Verona.
RB Salzburg have enjoyed a positive spell early in the new campaign and they have shown off in Group E as well, outclassing Genk (6-2) in front of the home fans and suffering a thriller 4-3 loss in Liverpool where they pulled three back only to see Mo Salah seal the points for the rivals with just over 20 minutes left on the clock.
Die Mozartstadter have lost on their consistency in October, though, and now come into the match with a 1-1 draw at 5th placed Sturm Graz behind them. They have been a lot tougher to beat at Red Bull Arena and will now hope to bounce quickly, desperate to challenge a top 2 spot midway through the Group stage.
We do feel they will prove themselves a very tough nut to crack and we will now stick our necks out for a thriller Draw in Salzburg, which comes at 14/5 with William Hill and looks like a great approach to the fixture at this point.
Indeed, Napoli have been tough to score against lately but we feel their Wednesday’s trip will be a different occasion altogether. With that in mind, we’re going for goals and a Yes on Both teams to score feels like buying money for old rope at 2/5 with William Hill!
