Napoli vs Salzburg Prediction & Tips
Napoli of Carlo Ancelotti tackles the Austrians of Red Bull Salzburg in the second round of the Europa League. The first leg is played at the San Paolo where the Neapolitans will have to try to make a result in view of the subsequent return on the field of a team that in the last edition was the real surprise of the tournament coming up to the semifinals. For Napoli this is now the primary competition after losing at home against Juventus 2-1 in the last round of the season. A knockout that saw the bianconeri stretch to +16 in the race to the Scudetto. The Red Bull Salzburg is instead in command of the Austrian Bundesliga, has 11 points ahead of the second in the standings, the LASK Linz, and in the last round has passed at home the Wolfsberger for 3-0.
Napoli overcame the final round of 32 with no problems against Zurich after being relegated from the Champions League.
Salzburg have won 8 of their last 9 games played in the Europa League.
Before the match against Juventus last Sunday, Napoli had never lost in the season at home with a total of 14 wins and 4 draws.
Between the league and the Europa League, Red Bull Salzburg has lost 2 of their last 3 away games.
Our choice falls on the Naples of Carlo Ancelotti. For the Neapolitans the seasonal goal is now the Europa League and winning at home in the first knockout rounds would be an important step ahead of the return to Salzburg.
