Napoli vs Barcelona prediction – Europa League preview
This match really couldn’t be more finely balanced after the first leg. Barcelona have the disadvantage of being the away side, but are still fancied as favourites by the bookies – but only just. The playing field is further levelled by the decision by UEFA to scrap the away goals rule.
In our other Napoli vs Barcelona prediction, we’ve played it reasonably safe and gone with a draw. But what other betting tip can we come up with? Well, there are a few different options, all of which look pretty tasty.
Firstly, you could go for the correct score, but what should you choose? Well, we favour a draw and, after looking at the William Hill odds, think that a bet on a repeat scoreline from the first leg looks decent. You’ll get odds of 11/2 on a 1-1 draw, which we think is a great price.
You could also look at the first goalscorer market, which often yields fantastic odds. A punt on Victor Osimhen to hit the back of the net first looks decent, with odds of 9/2, while a bet on Aubameyang to score first has tasty odds of 4/1. Both could be good options, but we agree with the bookies and favour Aubameyang to score first.
But what about the over/under market? Well, you’ll get odds of 10/11 on under 2.5 goals, while the odds for over 2.5 goals are 4/5. While both sides have several attacking threats, we predict a cagey affair, with Napoli relying heavily on their super-sturdy defence, so the under 2.5 goals bet looks great to us.
However, our number one bet is an unusual one, and we’ve picked it thanks to its enhanced odds at William Hill. They are offering odds of 9/4 that Dries Mertens will have over one shot on target in the game, which is a bet we simply can’t resist.
