Napoli vs Salzburg PredictionNapoli v Salzburg Prediction and Preview for Tuesday's group fixture in the Champions League. A cracker of a match is expected at the Stadio Sao Paolo on Tuesday night as Italian giants Napoli clash with Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg. In a group with very little between the sides, a lot is at stake in this encounter.
Match status: 2019-20 Champions League Group Stages
Kick-off:
Venue: Stadio San Paolo (Naples)
Carlo Ancelloti’s Napoli are a team with mixed fortunes. Domestically, the Gli Azzuri are struggling for points and come into this clash on the back of a narrow loss to Roma in the league that saw them slip to an unfamiliar 7th place in the standings. The coach clearly has his work cut out for him. On the European stage, it’s a different tale.

The Italian outfit are having a fantastic Champions League campaign and sit atop Group J though leading by a solitary point. Napoli are unbeaten so far in the campaign (W2 D1) and a win over Salzburg would see them past the group stages should other results play out in their favour.

With Carlo Ancelloti’s coaching ingenuity, it will be interesting to watch how the Italian plans on dismantling an Austrian side keen to cause an upset and he will count on their potent three-pronged attack of Mertens, Insigne and Callejon to deliver the goods.

Salzburg are the opposite of their match day opponents. In their domestic league, the Austrian side is simply awe-inspiring. They are unbeaten in 13 games and are currently at the summit of Tipico Bundesliga. Their Champions League campaign is a sharp contrast to their domestic form.

Unlucky to be drawn in the same group with defending champions Liverpool and a top Italian side in Napoli, Salzburg have only one win so far in a dismal European campaign, W1 L2. Jesse Marsch’s heavily rotated side ran out 3-0 winners against Mattersburg and this should give his side confidence and fresh legs heading into this clash.

Salzburg are a side that likes to press in numbers with a high-intensity style of play which means that they are always creating chances but are sometimes vulnerable at the back and this could be their main undoing on the European stage.

Napoli v Salzburg Team News

With the return of defenders Mario Rui and Kostas Manolas, Napoli’s defence has definitely got a shot in the arm and they will only be sweating on the fitness of defender K. Malcuit who is out with a knee injury as well as Brazilian midfielder Allan.

Salzburg have a little more injury concerns with midfielders P. Farkas and A. Bernede (Broken Leg) set to miss out. Reserve goalkeeper C. Stankovic and forward P. Farkas are also nursing injuries and will sit out this encounter.

Napoli vs Salzburg Predictions

Napoli, in front of their home fans, will want to impress and a fearless Salzburg side will dare to go for it all. Chances should be created on both ends even as Coach Ancelloti has something up his sleeve that will ensure all three points remain at home. Goals should however define this clash.
