Napoli vs Leicester City Preview and Livestream

Napoli have been giants in Italy over the past few decades but have failed to turn their stature and capabilities into silverware. They have a chance to amend that while their golden generation in the 21st Century is still playing at their peak. But for that, they must ensure qualification to the round of 32 of this season’s Europa League, where they currently sit third.

They need to beat Leicester to progress. The Foxes are top of the tree with 9 points from 5 games, while Napoli and Spartak Moscow are tied at 7 points. Legia Warsaw are also in the equation with 6 points to their name. A repeat of the result at the King Power Stadium will see the Foxes qualify, as that game ended in a 2-2 draw. It remains to be seen what happens in Italy.

Napoli vs Leicester City Prediction

Napoli are a great team at home and we cannot see any other result but a win for the Italians. They have a strong team all over the pitch and that coupled with injuries to major Leicester players means we go with a 2-1 home win for the Italians, that will see them make the Europa League knockout stages under Luciano Spalletti.
