Napoli News and Form
Napoli have had a mixed campaign so far. They opened with a great home success over Liverpool but then failed to follow it up with another three points when they visited Genk. With the Belgians the rank outsiders of the group, Napoli missed an opportunity as they were held to a 0-0 draw. Then Napoli produced a 3-2 win in Salzburg on Matchday Three to keep themselves at the top of the table with a point advantage over Liverpool.
Twice Napoli lost the lead in that game before a 73rd-minute strike from Lorenzo Insigne proved to be the winner. If they could complete the double of the Austrians, Napoli would be sitting very pretty in terms of qualification. Napoli have won six of their last seventeen Champions League games (D4 L7) in the competition proper, only. Five of those wins have happened on home soil, their win in Salzburg on Matchday three snapping an eight-match away streak in the competitions without a win. In last season’s competition, they remained unbeaten at home, taking seven points from their three games.

Salzburg News and Form
Salzburg exploded into life on Matchday One as they took 6-2 win over Genk. Then they mounted a stunning comeback to rattle Liverpool at Anfield in their second group down. Salzburg had been 3-0 down at one stage, but only narrowly ended up losing 4-3. There was another high-scoring game for them with their 2-3 loss at home against Napoli. They had been on a 19 match unbeaten streak of European home form before that. Can they come up with a response? Erling Braut Haaland has been the star of the Salzburg show with six goals in the group already, including a hattrick.
While they have been potent in attack, they will be concerned about the goals which they are giving up. Their eleven goals tallied though is the second-highest in this season’s group stage, second only to Bayern Munich’s haul of 13. The Austrians are on a three-match losing streak away from home and were unbeaten in seven on the road in the Champions League before their loss at Anfield. Salzburg have taken 5 wins from their previous 17 games against Italian opposition. They have a W2 D1 L5 record in Italy.

Who will win – Napoli v Salzburg Predictions
Napoli’s win at Salzburg was impressive. They did throw away the lead twice, but kept plugging away and got their rewards. That was an important win and should have filled them with confidence. The Partenopei have beaten Liverpool in Naples already and are worth backing to get the job done against Salzburg too.
