Napoli to beat Manchester City in Champions League cracker

We are set for a Champions League humdinger on Wednesday evening as free-scoring Manchester City head to Italy to face Serie A pacesetters Napoli, who are also netting for fun this season, and so we are destined to have an entertaining Group F clash, which could see City qualify for the knockout stages with a win.

  • Manchester City beat Napoli 2-1 in their last meeting
  • Napoli beat Manchester City 2-1 the last time they met in Italy
  • Napoli have won ten and drawn one of 11 Serie A matches this season

Tips Napoli to win    Best Bet @ 9 / 5  

City Are Narrow Favourites

Two goals in the opening 15 minutes of the corresponding fixture in mid-October saw Manchester City dominate from the outset, but a second half strike from Napoli saw Pep Guardiola's side come under the cosh in the closing stages, but they managed to hold on for the win, and will head into Wednesday's clash as the narrow 6/4 favourites with bet365 bookmakers.

However, Napoli have been in phenomenal form all season, and top the Serie A table with ten wins and one draw in eleven matches, so will be hoping they can continue that fine form on Wednesday, and at 9/5 with Unibet could be the value play, as City are sure to have one eye on Sunday's Premier League clash with Arsenal.

The draw is available at 29/10 with Betfair Sportsbook, but with Napoli sitting three points behind Shakhtar Donetsk in Group F they will be desperate for the three points, and with City bagging nine points from the opening three games, then it could be Napoli that look to get on the front foot early, and can down Guardiola's in-form side.
Match Odds:

Mertens To Ignite Napoli Win

Unsurprisingly, it's the red-hot Manchester City attacking pairing of Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus who are heading the betting for the first scorer in this match, with the former available at 9/2 with Unibet, while the latter is slightly bigger at 29/5 with Unibet to break the deadlock.

However, if Napoli are to land the victory here then they will be hoping that the sparkling Dries Mertens can score first, and the attacking star, who has already scored 12 goals this season, is a cracking 5/1 with Unibet to open the scoring, and that has to be worth backing if the Italians are to prevail.

For those looking for a bit of a safety net could also enjoy getting stuck into the 13/10 with Unibet about Mertens scoring in the 90 minutes in a match that could see a hatful of goals, and will be one of the highlights of week four in European's elite club competitions.
