Bet of the Day: Leipzig to put listless Napoli to the sword again
Cian Carroll | 22 February 2018
Betting preview of the return leg in Germany
Rasenball Leipzig welcome Napoli to the Red Bull Arena tonight for their Europa League second leg clash.
The Bundesliga side take a 3-1 lead into this return fixture, having upset the Serie A leaders on their own turf.
Some observers noted that it wasn’t much of a shock, however. Maurizio Sarri’s side are on course for their first league title since 1990.
In fact, the Partenopei are said to be obsessed with winning the Scudetto. Before the first leg in Naples, Sarri explained to the Italian media that the Europa League was essentially a nuisance.
The former Empoli coach stated that he had a difficult time motivating his players for this tournament. And that bore out in their 3-1 defeat at Stadio San Paolo.
Only 10,000 Napoli fans were in attendance that night and few will travel to Germany for this game.
Coral’s Bet of the Day is RB Leipzig to beat Napoli at 7/10.
Expect more goals in Germany
Despite some reservations, the first leg in Naples was still a rip-roaring affair. It was end-to-end with Napoli taking the lead, before shipping three goals.
Both coaches love to play attacking football so whoever starts here, we should be in for an entertaining game.
Both Teams To Score is 4/6, but Both Teams To Score and Leipzig to win is a gift at 23/10.
Werner to run riot again
Leipzig’s Timo Werner is one of the brightest young talents in European football. And the Germany international showed that quality in the first leg with two goals and an assist.
The 21-year-old is likely to leave the club at the end of the season with some of Europe’s super clubs circling.
The former Stuttgart youngster is 13/10 to find the net Anytime here, and 7/2 to score first.
