Salzburg vs Napoli Prediction & Betting tips
Napoli won the first game by no less than 3-0 against RB Salzburg. As a result, Thursday’s return in Austria appears to be a formality. Or does Salzburg manage to rise above itself?
RB Salzburg did a major shortfall in Naples a week ago. The Austrian national champion was not as hopeless as the 3-0 final score might suggest. Salzburg had the necessary chances to score during the match. With a goal scored, the starting position for the return would have been very different. Jerome Onguene provided the own goal in the second half for the 3-0 final score. “We had twenty goals,” trainer Marco Rose stated again at the press conference this week.
Rose gave his opinion on the return at the press conference. “It’s a difficult situation, but there is hope,” the trainer said. “It’s important that we don’t get a goal. Then we have to score five times and that is very difficult against Napoli, “said Rose. Xaver Schlager received a yellow card in Naples that he could not have. The talented midfielder is therefore suspended for the return match.
So Napoli took a big step towards the quarter-finals last week, with the big win over Salzburg. The Neapolitans mainly gave a lesson in effectiveness. The team of coach Carlo Ancelotti did not create much more chances than Salzburg, but jumped much more economically with the possibilities. Arek Milik and Dries Mertens formed the pointed couple. It was the Polish attacker who took care of the important opening goal after ten minutes.
Nikola Maksimovic and Kadiou Koulibaly were both suspended for the return in Salzburg by receiving a yellow card in the first leg. Ancelotti is not very spacious in the central defenders, because Raul Albiol cannot be deployed due to an injury. Last weekend the Neapolitans in the Serie A did not win. On a visit to Sassuolo, the team got no further than a 1-1 draw, making the gap with league-leader Juventus even bigger.
