Napoli v PSG betting preview
Napoli have won 10 and lost none of their last 12 home fixtures in all competitionsNapoli landed a huge win over Liverpool in their only home game so far in Champion League and played out a thrilling 2-2 draw in Paris in the reverse match. The Partenopei currently sit 2nd in the Serie A standings, six points shy of league leaders Juventus, after they beat Empoli 5-1 at the Stadio S.Paolo last Friday night. In Europe, Carlo Ancelotti's men landed a huge win over Liverpool in their only home game so far, meaning they have collected 5 points from three games so far. The hosts know that two wins will guarantee them a last 16 place.
Carlo Ancelotti should field the same starting XI who impressed at Parc Des Princes a fortnight ago. That means that Dries Mertens will be paired up front with Lorenzo Insigne, while Fabian Ruiz and Josè Callejon will play as wingers. The likes of Allan and captain Marek Hamsik will anchor the midfield while the four man backline will be formed by Mario Rui and Nikola Maksimovic on the flank, Raul Albiol and Kalidou Koulibaly at the heart. Vlad Chiriches, Simone Verdi and Amin Younes are sidelined while this match comes too early for Alex Meret, Adam Ounas and Faouzi Ghoulam.
The pressure is on PSG, following two poor performances in EuropePSG are dominating in Ligue 1 as the have collected 36 points from 12 matches. In other words, having won every single game thus far. Anyway, they are third in the Champions League group stage standings and can't afford to lose more ground having already lost at Liverpool 3-2 and drawn against Napoli. The sides shared a 2-2 draw in Paris two weeks ago and another high-scoring affair could be on the cards. If it weren’t for the Angel Di Maria's last gasp goal, PSG would be four points behind Napoli now, and six behind Liverpool, with their back against the wall.
Gianluigi Buffon is set to make his first Champions League appearance while Edinson Cavani, Layvin Kurzawa, Jesè, Dani Alves and Colin Dagba remain injury doubts. As a result, head coach Thomas Tuchel may prefer Kylian Mbappe through the middle over Cavani and Di Maria out wide in a 3-4-3 system. Otherwise, the Argentine winger could play as wing back, with Thomas Meunier on the othe side. Thiago Silva is finally fit again and is expected to get the nod in PSG's back three over Thilo Kehrer, playing alongside Presnel Kimpembè and Marquinhos.
