Napoli and Spartak Moscow resume their quest for their initial win in Group C when they face off at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona on Thursday.

Napoli overcame a two-goal deficit to force a 2-2 draw at Leicester City in their opening fixture. Victor Osimhen scored twice in the final 20 minutes to secure a point for the Italian club.

Napoli followed up that draw with victories over Udinese (4-0), Sampdoria (4-0) and Cagliari (2-0) to stay at the Serie A summit with 18 points from six matches. Osimhen featured in the scoresheet in all those victories. 

Faouzi Ghoulam and Stanislav Lobotka will not feature for Napoli in this match-up due to injuries.

Spartak began their Europa League journey with a 1-0 home loss to Legia Warsaw.

The Russian club next lost to CSKA Moscow (1-0) in the domestic league before bouncing back with a 2-0 home triumph over Ufa over the weekend behind goals from Ezequiel Ponce and Quincy Promes.

Georgi Melkadze, Pavel Maslov and Roman Zobnin are all sidelined with injuries.

This is the first meeting between the two teams since the second round of the 1990 Champions League. 

Verdict

Napoli are playing well that's why we are backing them to secure their first win in Group C.
