Napoli vs Feyenoord Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
An interesting match awaits us this Tuesday when Feyenoord will face Napoli at the Stadio San Paolo for the second round of their Champions League group F campaign. Both teams will be looking to turn around their start to the Champions League group stage, as they have both lost their opening group matches.
Napoli suffered a 2-1 defeat on the road at Shakhtar Donetsk in the previous Champions League round, with their consolation goal being scored by Arkadiusz Milik in the last 20 minutes of the game. They are in the group stage for the second year in a row. In 2016/17, they lost to eventual champions Real Madrid CF in the round of last 16. The loss against the team from Madrid was only their second loss in their 22 European home fixtures. Besides those two losses they also have fourteen wins and six drawn at home in European competitions. This season they had to beat OGC Nice in the playoffs in order to qualify for the group stage.
Feyenoord have recently lifted their first Eredivisie title in 18 years, and are now in the group stage of Champions League for the first time since the season 2002/03 when they got eliminated in the first stage. They failed to qualify in both 2012/13 and 2014/15 having lost to FC Dynamo Kyiv and Beşiktaş JK respectively. Last week they suffered a heavy 4-0 defeat to Manchester City in their Champions League group opener, in a game in which they delivered just one shot on target.
The Dutch team has a colorful record when it comes to matches against teams from Serie A. So far they’ve won four, drawn four and also won four matches. Away it is just two wins, one draw, and three losses. These two teams have never faced each other before. Despite qualifying for the group stage through play-offs and losing last week, Napoli are still a great team. Feyenoord will have a hard time this week in Rome.
