Napoli vs Ajax – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Napoli hammered Ajax 6-1 in Amsterdam last week. Can the Italians beat the Dutch giants again on Wednesday? Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Napoli to Win

Napoli produced one of the Champions League performances of the season last week when they put six goals past Ajax in Amsterdam and that was the Italians’ fourth victory in as many games in Group A. Luciano Spalletti’s side have won eight games on the bounce in all competitions overall and they are playing with a swagger that Ajax should find tough to combat in Naples. The prices for a home win are generous here and we recommend backing the hosts to book their place in the knock out rounds with another three points on Wednesday.

Over 2.5 Goals

Luciano Spalletti has Napoli playing a superb brand of attacking football and the Partenopei look like scoring buckets of goals whenever or whoever they play. Incredibly, they’ve rattled the net 13 times in just three Champions League group matches so far, while seven of their last eight contest have produced over 2.5 goals. More action is on the cards on Wednesday in Naples where another stake on over 2.5 goals could return dividends.

Napoli vs Ajax Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Wednesday’s Champions League contest between Napoli and Ajax below.

Napoli Predicted Lineup

Victor Osimhen is still nursing a hamstring injury and he is unlikely to be risked this week with more important fixtures on the horizon. Napoli need just one more win to guarantee their place in the next round of the Champions League and they are favourites to get the victory they need on Wednesday.

Predicted Lineup for Napoli: Meret – Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Min-Jae, Olivera – Anguissa, Lobotka, Zielinski – Lozano, Kvaratskhelia, Raspadori

Ajax Predicted Lineup

Ahmetcan Kaplan and Jorge Sanchez are both listed as absent for Ajax, though neither defender is likely to have started in Naples, even if they were fit. Dusan Tadic is suspended having been sent off last week. Ajax snapped a four-match winless run with a 4-2 triumph at Volendam on Saturday, though their performance was far from convincing again.

Predicted Lineup for Ajax: Pasveer – Rensch, Timber, Bassey, Blind – Alvarez, Taylor – Klassen, Berghuis, Bergwijn – Kudus
