      Tip Reasoning

      Europa League Group D action continues on Thursday night with the second game of the group stage play. Napoli are the big group favourites, they won their opening game 5-0 against Club Brugge and they’ll be eyeing up another big victory over Legia Warsaw in a group that is arguably there for the taking.

      Legia Warsaw didn’t start their campaign in the perfect way losing 1-0 to Midtjylland. They’re aiming for a fourth straight Polish league title, but have already fallen behind by eight points in the top division. There’s a long way to go, but results in domestic competitions will distract from the opportunity they may have had in this group.

      After a mediocre start to the Serie A season, they opened their Europa League stage campaign off with a 5-0 win against Club Brugge. Since then, Maurizio Sarri’s side have stepped up their performances thrashing Lazio 5-0 and also beating Juventus 2-1.

      Sandwiched between those two results was a disappointing 0-0 away draw with Carpi. However, that shouldn’t be a concern in this group, Napoli have a little too much quality and even a potentially tricky trip to Warsaw should be easy enough to navigate.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Napoli midfield control

      Napoli have a lot of options, a lot of attacking options and they’ll build up their attacks through a powerful midfield that has the ability to push through the centre, but also to break it out wide. It’s a difficult proposition for an under pressure Legia Warsaw, who need a result. Gonzalo Higuain and Marek Hamsik lead that effort.

      2. Can Legia Warsaw compete?

      The defeat to Midtjylland was a serious blow, but they weren’t truly competitive in the game and that’s a big issue for this team. The performance needs to be much better if Legia are going to compete in this group.

      3. One-goal brings more against Warsaw

      Napoli will play an attacking brand of football and they’ll get an early goal, which will spoil Legia Warsaw’s game plan.
