Dnipro v Napoli prediction

Europa League

Bet of the Day, 14.May – Single:

  1. Dnipro v Napoli: Napoli to Win

Napoli totally dominated the first leg of this Europa League semi-final with 19 shots (to Dnipro’s 4) and 14 corners (to just 1), but were held to a 1-1 draw as Dnipro grabbed a totally undeserved equaliser from an offside goal. 

Napoli certainly don’t lack motivation to turn this tie in their favour as their 2-2 draw at Parma dented their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League through Serie A.

The Italians have lost just one of their 6 away games in the Europa League, and in the knockout phase they have won 4-0 at Trabzonspor and 4-1 at Wolfsburg. They have also kept 4 clean sheets on the road in Europe this term.

In the same time, Napoli are the tournament’s top scorers with 26 goals.

The political unrest in Ukraine means Dnipro will play this game in the capital Kiev, rather than in their own stadium. Dnipro have won their last 4 Europa League games in Kiev, but they lost their last 2 home games in all competitions.
