      Napoli vs Legia Warsaw Predictions

      For Napoli, it’s a case of played five, won five. They’ve scored 17 goals and conceded just one time in the process. The one goal allowed came on their trip to Midtjylland, whom they beat 4-1 in that game. It has almost been too easy for Napoli in this game and there’s no incentive for them to play a full strength side against Legia Warsaw on Thursday.

      Legia Warsaw have the shortest straw of the three teams battling for second place. They need a draw or a Club Brugge win to be combined with a victory of their own against Napoli. The hardest part will be making the trip to Naples and finding some way to get three points, even if the Serie A side rests key players.

      On the positive front, Legia are playing some decent football, they won their last game in Europa League action beating Midtjylland 1-0 at home. That result kept them in the competition, but a clash with Napoli is a different matter.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Legia form

      They’ve perhaps just slightly turned the corner in their European football season. Of course, beating Midtjylland in Poland is only so impressive, but the way in which they played also counts for something. We give them a good chance to be competitive here.

      2. No reason for Napoli to go all out

      Going unbeaten the Europa League group stage means nothing, Napoli need good results from their last couple of matches before the short Serie A Christmas break. No reason to waste energy in this game and we expect to see at least a partially weakened line-up.

      3. Napoli haven’t actually thrashed teams of late

      They “only” beat Club Brugge 1-0 in the last round of games and a similar pattern has emerged in Serie A. The destructive and dominant Napoli hasn’t been quite so obvious or prevalent in recent weeks.
