The UEFA Champions League Round of 16 will see Frankfurt visit Napoli’s home in hopes of winning, after suffering a two-to-nil defeat from the hosts, in the reverse fixture. On the other hand, the Italian powerhouse has won four out of its last five games in this league. And is in great form.
The UCL game is slated to kick off at 8:00 PM (UTC), on Wednesday, at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, Napoli, Italy.
Napoli has lost only one of its last ten games. The loss was inflicted by Lazio in a match that ended 0-1. The Little Donkeys presently sit atop their Champions League table, having even more points than teams such as Liverpool and Ajax.
Frankfurt, contrastingly, has won only one of their last five games in the league. The German club is placed second in its group and has not won an away game in its last seven matches. Come Wednesday. The Eagles hope to put an end to this losing streak at Napoli.
In this head-to-head, Napoli will be without Giacomo Raspadori, with Mario Rui doubtful for the most part. On the other hand, the visitors will miss Eric Ebimbe and Jesper Lindstrom in their away matchup.
Napoli, unarguably, has the upper hand in this game due to their better form and more lethal squad than Frankfurt. The visitors have drawn two of their last three fixtures and lost one, and except by miracle, they will not be able to secure a win.
Both teams are likely to score, with odds of 1.80 (-125 American; ⅘ Fractional).
Reason: Napoli and Eintracht Frankfurt have scored in all of their last five Champions League fixtures.
Victor Osimhen to score – at any time, with odds of 225 (+225 American; 9/4 Fractional).
Reason: Osimhen is in good form at the moment. Even though he provided an assist, he didn’t score in their last game. Just like the first leg, Osimhen should be able to find the back of the net at home.
