Champions League betting tip: Napoli - Real Madrid
I don't know if Barcelona's loss will inspire, or the ease of their defeat scare Real a little. Like PSG and, despite being on the road , I do not think that Napoli will sit back and I expect them to take the game to Real at times and their massive away support, 12,000 are said to have got tickets for the game, will probably ensure that is the case and this will be very unlike a usual game at the Bernabeu.
Real have conceded in six of their last seven starts, twice in four of those and they also gave up a goal in all six group stage games, ten in total.
Napoli arrive unbeaten in 18 games, having scored 39 (3.0 average) in their last 13, two or more in 11, including a whopping 17 in their last four on the road, 5 at Cagliari, 2 in Milan, 3 at Fiorentina and 7 versus Bologna ! In the Champions League, they have scored in their last six and 10/11 road starts. This season they have showed their full potential when teams have taken the game to them and not sat back and whilst Real are certainly not gung-ho all the time, they do meet that criteria !
I loved the comment from Napoli head coach Maurizio Sarri who said : "My team has the attitude that we can attack anywhere, I'll accept any outcome but I will not accept a timid performance from my players." He also added that Napoli wanted to come and test themselves, see where they are in relation to the best teams in the world.
