Napoli: Looking strong (Recent Form: WDWLDW)
Things seem to look promising for Napoli. All important players stayed at the club. The squad has been strengthened by the arrivals of Maksimovic, Rog, Ounas or Rui. Napoli take on Nice on Wednesday at Stadio San Paolo in the first-leg of UEFA Champions League qualifications tie. “We are ready for the challenge vs Nice. We want to reach the group phase. We know it is the first goal of the season, for us it is very worthy to play in the group stage of Champions League and it is very important for the city too. We have the strength and the conviction to put a great performance in Champions League,” said Mertens.
Nice: Negative start in Ligue 1 (Recent Form: LLDDWL)
Nice competed against Ajax in the previous qualifying round and after two draws (1:1 home, 2:2 away) the French outfit advanced further. Then, they started the new season in Ligue 1 in poor way, with 2 defeats in 2 matches. Anyway, players look forward to the game against Napoli. “We need to perform. We have some very good players who are ready to face this challenge, we saw that against Ajax. We have a consistent squad, that is together, and we will be putting in the effort together to bring home the best result possible,” said Jallet. Balotelli and Sneijder are unavailable.
NOWGOAL BETTING VERDICT:
In conclusion, it looks like this might be an interesting clash with a couple of goals. Both teams are offensive-minded and they have good strikers. Napoli will try to decide the tie already at home by scoring a couple of goals. However, Nice have good offensive players and they should be dangerous up front as well. In my opinion a few goals may be scored in this outing.
