Leicester host Napoli in the Europa League. 

The Foxes have had an inconsistent start, while Napoli are unbeaten in 12 matches. I’m tipping BTTS and a draw.

Leicester have had an ambivalent start to the new season. The Foxes were smashed 4-1 away to West Ham but recovered well to beat Norwich 2-1 away from home. A date with the champions Manchester City loomed, where Leicester suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat. 

Napoli’s unbeaten run has continued into the new season. Luciano Spalleti’s side opened the season with a 2-0 win over Venezia before downing Genoa 2-1 away from home. A statement making 2-1 win over Juventus followed, which sees their unbeaten streak stretch to 12 matches.

Verdict

Napoli are in fine form and have looked impressive on the road. I’m backing BTTS and a draw.
