Leicester City vs Napoli: Prediction and Betting Tips

20:00, Sep 16 2021
Leicester City vs Napoli prediction for Thursday’s Europa League Group C matchday one clash at King Power Stadium in Leicester. Playing in the Europa League after finishing fifth in the Premier League, Leicester City will host Napoli who also finished fifth in the Serie A. You can read on for our preview free prediction and betting tips on this page.

Leicester City looking ahead for better times in the UEL

Despite having a great season last term, Leicester’s last-ditch slump saw them miss the Champions League. In effect, Brendan Rodgers sees his team play in Europe for the second consecutive season in a sign of improvement. However, the Foxes couldn’t advance past Sparta Prague last season in the round of 32. 

Two wins and two defeats to start off their Premier League season is not the best start for Leicester. Still, manager Brendan Rodgers will be concerned with his team’s record in the Europa League. In fact, the Foxes won just once in five matches and failed to score in three of the last four matches in the competition.

Leicester Key Points

  • Leicester had one clean sheet in their last four home games
  • In Leicester’s last ten matches, BTTS happened in six of them
  • The Foxes scored in nine of their last ten games

Napoli is another serious contender for the UEL title

Having won all three opening matches in the Serie A this season, Napoli want to reflect that form in the UEL. In addition, Gli Azzurri are looking for their first European trophy since 1988/89. During last season’s edition, Napoli lost surprisingly to Granada of Spain in the round of 32, 3-2 on aggregate.

As a matter of fact, the Partenopei progressed from all of their five participations in the UEL to the knockout phase. Moreover, the Italians topped their group in the last three editions. Thus manager Spalletti has high hopes from his team and long’s the 2015/16 season’s performance when they won all six matches.

Napoli Key Stats

  • Napoli scored in all of their last ten matches
  • In Napoli’s last ten matches, BTTS happened in seven of them
  • The Blues scored on average 2.5 goals in their last five away games

Leicester City vs Napoli Prediction 

It is very important for both Leicester and Napoli to have a winning start in this group. The reason for that is being the favorites to finish in the top two spots. Hence, we will witness a game in which two teams will battle as if it’s a final game.

Consequently, the fact that bookies are favoring both teams to score, we think this outcome is probable. Also, looking at their stats, we find that Napoli have a perfect scoring record recently. Likewise, Leicester have a high number of games in which BTTS happened.

To conclude, we predict both teams to score in this match. Vbet has odds of 1.62. However, in the combos section, we can spice things up by combining them with a double chance.
