Napoli vs FC Zurich betting tips, predictions and match preview for tonight’s Europa League fixture. The Italian’s are strong favourites to win and should progress here after winning the first leg 3-1. See our betting tips and predictions below.
The 3-1 win for Napoli in the first leg has put them in a commanding position in the tie and they may just want to keep things tight and easy into the next round here. They have a huge game against Juventus coming up next weekend so manager Carlo Ancelotti could rest a few of his star names. The over 2.5 goals bet is a really short price here which gives some value to betting on under 2.5. If Napoli do look to shut up shop then this is a great bet for the Europa League tie tonight. The best odds for under 2.5 goals is 2/1 at bet365.
Napoli scored three times in Zurich and the goals were shared between Callejon, Insigne and Zielinski. One or two of their starting 11 could be rested tonight but we’re taking a chance on Jose Callejon taking his place from the start and bagging the first goal of the match. He doesn’t get many goals but got off the mark in the Europa League last week, and should start in his right wing position here. The odds for Calljon to score first are 6/1 with Paddy Power (as short as 10/3 with other bookmakers)!
The hosts are in great form at home and haven’t lost at the San Paolo Stadium in 22 competative matches now – that run includes a win against Liverpool and draw against PSG in their Champions League group. It is hard to see Napoli not eventually winning this match and we’re going for a comfortable 2-0 scoreline in our betting tips. They have kept clean sheets in five of their last seven home matches so we aren’t predicting an FC Zurich away goal which would make things interesting.
Under 2.5 Goals – 2/1 with bet365.
Callejon to score first – 6/1 with Paddy Power.
