Napoli has their sights firmly set on winning the Europa League and bring a 3-1 lead to the Stadio San Paolo where they host FC Zurich.

Predictions

Napoli were arguably the best performers in their Champions League group that included Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool and Red Star Belgrade but still somehow managed to not qualify for the knock out stages. After finishing on nine points while beating last season’s finalists Liverpool and pushing PSG close they should be now considered as one of the favourites to win the Europa League.

FC Zurich finished on 10 points three behind Bayern Leverkusen in a group that also featured AEK Larnaca and Ludogorets. The Swiss club was outclassed in the first leg and can’t be too confident of progressing against one of the better sides that dropped down from the Champions League.

Napoli had struggled in front of goal in their recent league games but found enough holes in the Swiss backline last week to almost put the tie to bed. The Azzurri sit in second place in Serie A 13 points behind leaders Juventus

Zurich is in fourth in the Swiss Super League a massive 28 points behind Young Boys who are top of the table.

Betting Tips

  • Napoli to win and both teams to score                                          

Napoli had too much for Zurich in Switzerland but the odds for a home win don’t offer much value.

  • Total goals over 3.5 

Napoli performed at a high level during their Champions League campaign and that might be why most popular betting sites are offering relatively low prices for goals here.

Head to Head

The only time these sides met before was in the first leg which Napoli won 3-1 in Zurich.

Stats

  • This is Zurich’s first time in the knock out rounds of the Europa League since the 2007-08 season where they were beaten by Hamburg. Kosovan Benjamin Kololli has two goals and two assists to his name so far in the competition.
  • Napoli scored just seven goals in their six Champions’ League group matches – and three of them came against Red Star Belgrade at home in their penultimate game.
  • Zurich is looking to somehow emulate their two Champions League Semi-Final appearances in 1964 and 1977.
  • Napoli will be looking to do better in this year’s Europa League than the 2011-12 season when they were knocked out by Ukrainian side Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk in the semi-finals.
