Napoli vs Frankfurt – Betting Preview

On March 15, when Luciano Spalletti’s team hosts Eintracht Frankfurt at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in Naples, Napoli supporters are hoping for a low-key match. Given that they are up 2-0 overall, the Italians can afford to lose only marginally.

Napoli Preview

Napoli will win the Italian Serie A this year, which would be their third championship in club history and their first since 1990, with a near-certainty. They also have a chance to win additional awards, including as the Champions League, as if that weren’t enough.

As a matter of fact, you can be certain that they will only be concentrating on the Champions League given their double-digit point advantage over Inter Milan, the team in second place in Serie A.

They will take the game on Wednesday very seriously, despite having a 2-0 advantage from the first leg. Sure, even a loss by one goal would take them to the next phase of the UCL, but we think they’re going to go for a win.

Napoli has won as many games against German opposition in the last two European competitions as they have in the previous 12 such contests (D3 L7). They defeated Eintracht Frankfurt for the first time ever in the opening leg of their match

Frankfurt Preview

As Frankfurt are down 2-0, they must try to win in Naples. Moreover, a significant victory is required. They must triumph by a margin of at least two goals. The Germans have no choice but to try, even though it doesn’t seem particularly feasible.

Eintracht Frankfurt has a great offensive. There are often two goals scored per game in the German Bundesliga. In addition, we witnessed them score seven goals in six games during the UCL group stage. They scored five of those goals away from home.

They certainly possess the talent to score against Napoli in Naples, but do they possess the fortitude to stop the Italian powerhouse? No, in our opinion.

Eintracht Frankfurt’s only previous away game against Napoli ended in a 1-0 win, in December 1994 in the UEFA Cup last 16.

1×2 Betting Preview

Let’s begin analysing the 1×2 market

That must be an easy victory for the Italian team given their current form. Napoli could cruise to a victory over the German team thanks to their 18-point lead in the league standings, first-place position, and home-field advantage.

Napoli to win stands @ 1.55.

Many important players for Frankfurt are now out with injuries or suspensions, which will give Napoli the advantage in the game. In their last six road games, Frankfurt has also failed to win a single game.

Frankfurt to win here by any kind of margin stands @ 7.00.

The market odds of a stalemate and Napoli qualify, stands @ 4.70.

Total goals over/under

Let’s check the over/under scenario

The odds that the total number of goals scored will be over 2.5, stands @ 1.84.

While the odds that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, stands @ 2.12.

Frankfurt are chasing this tie from a 2-0 deficit but our prediction is that the margin between the two sides will only grow as they lock horns in Naples.

Firstly, there is the tactical element to consider. Frankfurt will have to come and have a bit of a go at Napoli; that will suit Luciano Spalletti’s men who will look to pick off their visitors in transitions.
