Reasons for betting on Nice vs Napoli tip
Nice and Napoli will play a very interesting game at Allianz Riviera. The club from Italy has two goals advantage after the first game played in Naples. But the encouraging thing for the home team, is the fact that the biggest star Mario Balotelli will be ready for this crucial encounter. Along with him is the biggest signing and the person who has experience in winning the Champions League, Wesley Sneijder, is also going to be available.
We have seen bigger comebacks, so it is quite possible that the French Club ends up in the group stage of the Champions League. For us, this is a perfect chance to earn some money betting on it.
The Eaglets are not in a good situation at the moment. They managed to bounce back this weekend, after three straight defeats, with a victory against Guingamp, 2-0. Previously they had 5 games in a row without a win. After 2 draws with Ajax Amsterdam, Nice has recorded two losses in Ligue 1, and one against Napoli, 0-2.
The game in Italy was very intense, and the home team was dominating throughout the whole 90 minutes. Along with a pale performance, Nice players received two red cards, and that will be a huge handicap in the rematch. They are having difficulties with the defense because they couldn’t keep a clean sheet in the previous 9 events in a row. Both teams to score had been seen in 7 of those 9 games. Wylan Cyprien is injured, while Vincent Koziello and Alassane Pléa are under a suspension after the red cards in Italy.
The former club of Diego Armando Maradona has opened the national championship with a pretty convincing win over Verona 1-3. Throughout the whole match, the club from Naples controlled the game and dominated the pitch. Currently, they have only one defeat in the previous 10 games played. And in the most recent 5 matches, they have scored at least two goals in each of them.
When we look further back only twice throughout those 10 games, Napoli hasn’t scored at least two goals.
They still prefer a high-paced game with a lot of goals. They were not changing the roster much, which means that the chemistry on the field is still on the high level.
Head to head matches
The first leg in Naples was the third game in the previous two years. Napoli and Nice met twice in club friendly games. Both games what ended with over 2.5 goals and each side has one win. Napoli won 3-0, and on the other side Nice with 3-2.
Prediction for Nice vs Napoli tip
There is no doubt that the French team will give everything they have in order to reach this deficit. That guarantees a very efficient match, which will probably see over 2.5 goals. This would be our first choice. Having in mind that Mario Balotelli and Wesley Sneijder are going to appear in this event, we believe that the hosts will be more lethal than in the first meeting. Meanwhile, Napoli is always offensive, which means that the probability of both teams to score will be pretty high. It would be our second pick.
