Preview

Napoli and Dnipro face off at San Paolo stadium on this first leg match of the semi-finals of the Europa League. 

The head to head history tells us a history of balance between the teams, 1 win each on the last 2 matches. 

Worth noticing however that Napoli is widely considered as a major favourite to win this year’s Europa League.

Analysis of Napoli

Napoli was the big surprise of the last round of the competition having eliminated Wolfsburg (6-3 agg.), a major title contender. On the home table they are the 4th placed team with 59 points coming from 17 wins, 8 draws and 9 losses.

Looking at the home team’s stats we can see that they have a huge scoring vein at their stadium. Napoli has a 2,5 goals average at home with 83%of their matches ending over 2,5.

They tend to go easy on the first 15 minutes of their matches which explains why this timeframe is where they concede the most goals.

Probable Starters: Andújar; Maggio, Albiol, Britos, Ghoulam; Inler, López, Hamsik, Callejón, Mertens; Higuaín.
Coach: Rafael Benitez 


Confirmed Lineup: M. Andújar, Albiol, C. Maggio, M. Britos, F. Ghoulam, David López, M. Hamšík, Jorginho, G. Higuaín, José Callejón, L. Insigne.
Coach: Rafael Benítez.

Analysis of Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk

Myron Markevych’s team is the “outsider” of this year’s edition of the Europa League having eliminated Olmpiakos, Ajax and Club Brugge. On the home table they are currently 2nd after winning 3-0 against Chornomorets.

On away legs Dnipro tend to adopt a more defensive strategy which leads to a lower goal average, scored (0,71 goals per match) and conceded (0,86 goals per match).

Despite the above averages their tactic has been mostly successful having drawn 43% of their away matches 0-0.

Probable Starters: Boyko; Fedetskiy, Cheberyachko, Douglas, Léo Matos; Kankava, Rotan, Konoplyanka, Bezus; Luchkevych; Seleznev.
Coach: Myron Markevych 


Confirmed Lineup: D. Boyko, Douglas, A. Fedetskiy, E. Cheberyachko, Léo Matos, V. Luchkevych, Y. Konoplyanka, V. Fedorchuk, J. Kankava, N. Kalinić.
Coach: R. Rotan, M. Markevych.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this match is Napoli not scoring more than 2 goals. We expect Napoli to naturally dominate, despite that, against an experienced and competent Ukrainian defense they should face some scoring problems.
