Napoli hosts Leicester City at Stadio Maradona in the highlight match of this round. The Foxes top the group with 8 points which is just one more than the chasing pack of Spartak Moscow and Napoli while Polish side Legia sits at the bottom a further point back.

We expect fireworks here and we will take a look at 1x Bet mobile and Mybet.africa betting markets and prices for our betting tips in this preview.

NAPOLI

Napoli have been lighting up the Serie A but have struggled to replicate that form in this competition. Their only two wins came against Legia. That said, they are still in a position to qualify to the round of 16 if they can take of business with a win, and could possibly even top the group if they win and Spartak Moscow fails to match them in their match.

Winning the group is certainly a priority this year, as the runners up will be pitted against the third-placed teams from the Champions League group games in February, which this time includes the likes of Barcelona and Dortmund!

Luciano Spalletti’s men have had a fantastic record at home this season, despite the loss to Atalanta in the league last time out. They managed a 2-2 comeback against the visitors last time out. They’ll need more than that if they are to have their fate in their hands.

LEICESTER

Whereas a draw could be enough for them, the prospect of matching up with strong Champions League opponents will provide enough motivation for the Foxes to push for all points on offer in Naples.

After a slow start that had them at the bottom of the group, Leicester have come alive with 2 wins and a draw in their last three group matches, a run that has catapulted them to the summit of the group. However, the group dynamics are such that a loss for them here and a win for Spartak will relegate them to third in the group and out of the competition.

They come into this match on the back of a deflating 2-1 loss at the weekend to Aston Villa which saw them drop into the bottom half of the EPL. Brendan Rodgers will be looking to this competition to try and inject some fresh impetus in his squad and a win here would go a long way in doing that.

NAPOLI VS LEICESTER PREDICTIONS

There is literally everything to play for here. Both of these teams will play this game like their very lives depend on it. We anticipate a closely contested and physical game here with potential for cynical tackles here and there as both sides try to get the better of each other. The cards market has to come into play here given how much is at stake in this game. Centre referee Antonio Miguel Mateu Lahoz who will take charge of this game has his work cut out. We fancy there will be a few bookings either way and we are picking Over 4.5 @ 1.60 with 1xBet as our initial call here. Get to know how to use 1xBet Bonus!

Napoli squad has been decimated with injuries and COVID in recent weeks and even though they are gutting it out and will certainly go for it here, the lack of depth is clearly straining them. Leicester on their day can be quite dangerous and we feel they will set up for a smash and grab job here with their pace on the counter-attack. As such, we feel there is value in backing the Foxes on the double chance @ 1.84 with Mybet.Africa Cashback bonus as our last call.
