napoli vs salzburg Tip Reason:

Napoli cruised past Swiss side Zurich in the last round of the Europa League, while RB Salzburg trailed 2-1 after their 1st leg against Club Brugge and ended up winning the tie 5-2 on aggregate. Both teams are going well in their respective domestic leagues, with Napoli remaining in second place after losing to the Serie A leaders Juventus at the weekend and RB Salzburg sitting top of the Austrian Bundesliga by eleven points after beating Wolfsberger AC. Napoli put in a really good performance against Juventus at the weekend, and under other circumstances they surely would have won the game. However, the hosts were always up against it, when in the twenty-fifth minute goalkeeper Meret was sent-off and the visitors took full advantage with two goals before the break. Juventus then had Pjanić red carded early in the second half and shortly after the hour mark José Callejón pulled a goal back for the hosts. Napoli should have equalised late on but Insigne missed an eighty-fourth minute penalty and Juve held on to secure all three points. Israel international Dabour scored twice as RB Salzburg cruised to a 3-0 victory at home to Wolfsberger AC, with the hosts having 61% of the overall possession and twenty-one shots to their guests six during the ninety minutes. Taking into account the form of both sides over the last few weeks, their overall squad quality, and their performances in the Europa League this season, we’re backing Napoli to win and keep a clean sheet in Thursday’s 1st leg. Napoli have won three of their last five games and kept clean sheets in four of their last six in all competitions. Salzburg are in decent form themselves with three wins from their last five, but two of their last three games on the road have ended in defeat. Napoli beat Zurich 2-0 in the last round at home and we’re expecting another solid performance from the Italian’s against their Austrian guests. Salzburg lost the 1st leg away at Club Brugge and Napoli are a much stronger side than the Belgians and regularly play against tougher teams in their domestic division. Napoli aren’t too far away from challenging Juventus for the Serie A title as they proved at the weekend, and we believe they will comfortably beat RB Salzburg on Thursday. Insigne has scored four times in Europe for Napoli this season and will be keen to make up for his missed penalty against Juventus over the weekend. Dabour has scored seven times in the Europa League this season and will be Salzburg’s biggest goal threat on Thursday. We’re confident that Napoli will win to nil on Thursday, and have backed a final scoreline of 2-0 in Italy. The hosts are the stronger of the two sides and have kept plenty of clean sheets of late, while RB Salzburg have lost two of their last three on the road, which includes their trip to Belgium in the last round.
