Napoli vs Spartak Moscow: Prediction and Betting Tips
Napoli in perfect form at the start of the season
A perfect start to Napoli’s season was marred by their draw in their first match of the Europa League with Leicester. Indeed, that match could have been their first defeat of the season after trailing by two goals. However, a typical Italian “Remontada” saw the Partenopei end up scoring two goals to gain a point.
Napoli’s dominance this season in all the matches they played is very obvious. Also in their match against Leicester, Spaletti’s team had three times more goal attempts than their hosts with 22. Obviously, Spaletti is doing an amazing job with Napoli especially in Serie A where they won all of their six matches.
Napoli Key Points
- Napoli are undefeated in 16 matches
- The Blues scored in their last 25 matches
- Spaletti’s team had five clean sheets in ten games
Spartak Moscow look for a miracle to get a point
Spartak Moscow is Russia’s most successful club. Notably, they have won 12 Soviet and ten Russian championships. Their best record in Europe was reaching the semi-final of the three European Cups. This season Spartak lost to Benfica in the Champions League qualification 4-0 on aggregate.
Moreover, Spartak’s Russian Premier League season was off to a shaky start as they currently lie in the ninth position. Additionally, the Red and Whites’ first match in the Europa League saw them lose at home to Legia. Hence, coach Rui Vitoria is under great pressure to steady the ship and get a good result here.
Spartak Key points
- Spartak have no clean sheets in their last three away matches
- The Red and Whites failed to score in four of their last ten matches
- 2.1 is the average goals scored in Spartak’s last ten matches
Napoli vs Spartak Moscow Prediction
Surely Napoli will continue to display the kind of form that kept them undefeated so far this season. Obviously, Spartak don’t have the capabilities to cause any problems for Spaletti’s team. Thus it will be a matter of how many will Insigne and co score in this one.
Just one win in the last seven away matches is not the kind of form to carry into this match for Spartak. Consequently, coach Rui Vitoria will adopt a congested defensive system in front of their goal and minimize the damage as much as possible.
Undoubtedly the clear favorites by the bookies are Napoli with odds of 1.25 at Vbet. however, the bookies expect Napoli to score at least two goals and offer 1.50 for it.
As for our prediction and considering the form and statistics of both teams, we think we will see goals from only Napoli, and the Russians will suffer to score.
