Shane’s Free Pick
Napoli has to feel superb heading into this game with a 2-0 lead, and I expect they are going to go in a defensive shape in this game. Look for Entracht Frankfurt to really struggle to score here, and that is going to be the difference here, as this game is going to be lower scoring. Back the under to cash here.
