Manchester City vs Napoli 17 October 2017: UCL Preview and Predictions

Two of the most in-form teams in Europe will clash this week in the Champions League as Manchester City will play host to Italian side, Napoli. This is a group that will be challenging for all teams in it and all the teams will want to top it so I am expecting a good performance from the teams in this game.

Napoli are a team that are in great form and it looks like they might have what it takes to win the title in Italy this season.The likes of Dres Mertens and others add a lot of pace and skill to the side while they also have a solid defense and midfield to back the attackers. In this team, they will look to use their wingers and that will challenge Manchester City who are missing their starting wingbacks at the moments.

On the other hand, Manchester City looks like a well-oiled machine. David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne are creating chances and Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and others are finishing them. They looked dominant on the weekend and they will hope to perform a similar performance this week in the Champions League. Napoli will be a big test for this side since they are of a much higher level than Stoke City but at home, I am expecting them to win the game.

As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a very short price on the home side to win this game and as a result, I am not betting on it. That being said, there is still a ton of value in this game. Both teams are good at scoring so the over 2.5 goals and both teams to score bets are both good options in my opinion.
