Napoli vs Legia Warsaw 10 Dec 2015: Europa League Preview and Predictions
10 December 2015/1505ET
Napoli will be playing in the Europa League this week as they host Polish side Legia Warsaw. This game is one which will not be the most interesting to watch on this match day but as handicappers there is a ton of value in it. As tournament impact goes, this match has very little impact. This is because Napoli has already won the group and Legia Warsaw can not qualify unless a miracle.
Napoli go into this match having not lost a single point in the entire group stage of this tournament. This team has been playing exceptional football and for me they are one of the best teams in Europe. This side is well balanced with a good defence and a midfield which is solid while being creative. In addition to this, Napoli have an exceptional striker in Higuain who simply can not stop scoring. This team is incredible and although they had an embarrassing loss against Bologna on the weekend, I expect them to come back strong and have a huge win.
For Legia Warsaw, they will try to provide some solid competition. A win here for the Polish side is near impossible and I think that they will be happy with a good, competitive loss. This side has been playing well in their domestic league and currently sit in second spot but they are a whole level below their opposition. The last time these two met, Napoli won 2-0 and a similar result will be something which Legia Warsaw will be happy with but considering the game is at Naples I think that the Napoli win will be a lot bigger.
As expected, Napoli go into this game as huge favorites so there is no real value in betting on the outright result. That being said, the handicap is set at only one goal. This is obviously way too low and Napoli will easily get a win that is larger that 1 goal. This is great value so this is where my money will be on.
