Big derby in group B of the Champions League – Benfica vs. Napoli. The interesting thing is that if Besiktas loses against Kiev, both Benfica and Napoli are qualified.
If the Turks win at least one point, Napoli and Benfica are in trouble – meaning that they could finish anywhere from 1st place to 3rd. Who will manage to win the clash, along with a direct qualification spot?
Benfica vs Napoli – 06/12/2016
FT Result: Benfica 2.55 or 31/20 Draw 3.50 or 5/2 Napoli 2.90 or 19/10
Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.95 or 19/20 Under 1.85 or 17/20
Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.75 or 3/4 No 2.00 or 1/1
While both sides have their advantages, it’s fair to say that Napoli seems to fare a little better. Their current form is better and morale certainly higher, after their awesome 3-0 win over Inter in Serie A.
They’ve also won their home game against Benfica with a very convincing 4-2 scoreline and generally seemed to play great football in the CL this year.
They haven’t really managed to live up to expectations in their clashes against Besiktas but could repair these issues with a win over the Portuguese very easily. Their attack also works great in recent times, especially away from home.
On the other hand, the Portuguese are a great team in front of their home fans. They haven’t conceded in their last 5 games and are undefeated at home this year.
They won 2-0 against Napoli at home in 2008 and will look to avoid defeat in order to be sure they’ll qualify for the knockout rounds.
They do miss the likes of Eliseu and Horta through injuries but should have no problems replacing them in the starting line-up and putting up a decent fight.
Benfica vs Napoli Betting Tips
This game seems very balanced on paper, and we believe that there are some very easy bets to take. Benfica +1.5 is one of them – even if Napoli manages to win, they won’t win convincingly here.
“Both teams to score” is another great idea, while an X bet is worth taking a risk for. All in all, we would avoid betting on any team to win, since really anything can happen here.
