Double Chance – Draw or Leicester 

The teams are amongst the favorites to win the entire competition and rightfully so considering the performances they had so far. The first time they met in Group C resulted in a 2:2 draw and Napoli was perhaps the better side of the two. Interesting to mention for the 2nd game between the two clubs on the 9th of December is that Napoli has a lot of injury issues that can’t go unnoticed. Meanwhile, the only injured player on the away team is Wesley Fofana who has a decent substation. 

Both Teams to Score – Yes 

The game they had in England had both teams score a goal twice. It is true that Napoli has injury issues and will lack the attacking force that was available for the first game but away games to Diego Armando Maradona Stadium have always been painful for the away team. The exchange of goals is more than expected as both teams need a victory to qualify to the next round. 

Over 2.5 Goals 

The 4 goals in the first game can’t be unnoticed either. Both clubs are famous for their attacking style and they aren’t going to turn their back on it right now. In the last 5 games for Napoli, we saw 4 games resulting in 3 or more goals being scored. Meanwhile, Leicester as well had 4 in 5 games resulting in 3 or more goals being scored. Jamie Vardy is looking sharp ahead of the game and chances for away goals are high.
