Napoli vs AZ Alkmaar Prediction and Betting Preview 22 Oct 2020

Here's our Napoli vs AZ Alkmaar Prediction analysis: Napoli vs AZ Alkmaar PredictionItalian giants Napoli make a return to the Europa League this season as they welcome Dutch side AZ Alkmaar to the San Paolo Stadium for a crunch clash on Thursday.
Match status: 2020/21 Europa League - Group Stage
Kick-off:
Venue: Stadio San Paolo (Naples)
The Italian outfit ended the 2019/20 campaign in 7th place on the Serie A table, gathering 62 points to secure Europa League group stage qualification. They also emerged victorious in the Coppa Italia, narrowly defeating Juventus.

The Partenopeans have started the current season quite brightly having won three of four games played; losing only once. 
In so doing, they have managed to rack up 12 goals – averaging a stunning three goals per match. While at it, they have also maintained some defensive stability, conceding only four goals so far. Napoli will be looking to build on this, with an outstanding result against AZ Alkmaar here.

Napoli vs AZ Alkmaar Team News

The Italians are playing attacking, fluid and entertaining soccer at the moment, and have been banging in the goals at a dizzying rate. 
Last week in the Serie A, they had a clash with the similarly attacking and exciting Atalanta; a game which did not disappoint in terms of attacking zest and goals. Atalanta was put to the sword in the 4-1 victory for Napoli.

Napoli blasted in four goals in the space of 20 minutes to steal away the victory. Hirving Lozano was the hero of the game as he claimed the first two goals in clinical fashion. Matteo Politano scored the third with Nigerian International Victor Osimhen firing in the fourth to break his duck at the club.

Atalanta managed to grab a consolation goal in the 69th minute but couldn’t muster a comeback. Gennaro Gattuso will be rooting for his team to continue in their winning ways against this AZ Alkmaar team that has failed to win any game this season. 

The Eredivisie side have been underwhelming so far, having drawn all four of their league games this term. It has not been for a lack of goals though, as they have netted 10 times in those games. Rather, it is their leaky defense that has let them down massively.

Another issue which will not improve the AZ’s chances is the state of the squad, as many of their key players remain infected with the coronavirus. A whopping thirteen players have already been ruled out of this fixture, after testing positive to the virus.

This has left head coach Ame Slot with only 17 players to choose from. This already tips the scales in favor of the opposition, even prior to kickoff. Will we witness a classy AZ upset here? Though unlikely, we’ll just wait to find out!
