Leicester vs Napoli: prediction for the Europa League match
For the most part of the previous season Leicester were at the Top-4 of the English Premier League, but Foxes completely failed the ending of the season and they were left without a Champions League spot as a result. But Brendan Rodgers's side made a sensation in FA Cup, beating Chelsea (1:0) in the final.
Foxes already won the first trophy of the current season - they beat Manchester City (1:0) in the English Super Cup. So far Leicester are in a poor form at Premier League - after four rounds they got only six points and only ninth spot in the standings. Foxes suffered their second defeat in three games, losing to Manchester City (0:1) in the most recent round.
Just like their today opponent, Napoli failed to fulfill their task in the previous season. Just like Leicester, Neapolitans were fighting for a spot in the Champions League, but in the last round they dropped from the Champions League zone. During the summer Luciano Spalletti took over the team as new head coach. Napoli kept the core of the squad and started the season well.
In the first round Neapolitans had to end the match with 10 men on the field after a red card being given to Victor Osimhen, but Venezia failed to take advantage of it, while Napoli scored two goals. In next two rounds Parthenopeans recorded 2:1 victories over Genoa and Juventus and climbed up to the third spot in the standings.

This bet won in seven most recent matches of Napoli
In two out of three most recent matches Leicester scored after the half-time
Leicester put up an unsuccessful performance in recent matches, they picked up only three points in three most recent games. Foxes will use rotation in this match, because it is obvious that English Premier League is a more important tournament for them, they will try to earn a spot in the Champions League. Napoli can take advantage of that.
We think that hosts won't pick up three points. Our prediction - Napoli to not lose
Prediction: Napoli to not lose
Do you agree with this bet?0 votes
Leicester will rest some of the players today and they are unlikely to open up since the first minutes of the match against such a serious opponent. We can say the same about Napoli - they will be happy with one point, so they are unlikely to open up as well - there is a high possibility of draw in this match.
Our second bet is on a draw
