Napoli vs Eintracht Frankfurt predictions and betting tips on March 1
On March 15, Diego Armando Maradona Stadium (San Paolo) (Naples) will host the second leg of the 1/8 finals of the Champions League, in which Napoli will compete with Eintracht Frankfurt. The battle will start at 20:45 CET.
The team can play the further matches at low speed. And it is only its merit that while the rest of the clubs are “tearing their veins” at the finishing spurt, there is an opportunity to be in the battle, keeping in mind that the desired result is practically in your pocket. Performing well in the Serie A, where every round inevitably brings them closer to the Scudetto, Luciano Spalletti’s wards are doing their best in the Champions League, where they returned after the pause. They went through the group stage in one breath, winning the first five matches. And the team brought a confident 2-0 victory from Germany in February – it allows feeling more than comfortable now – it will play only to please the own fans once again without the slightest pressure of the result.
The club is in its second season under the rule of Oliver Glasner. The Austrian specialist immediately justified his invitation, having managed to win the Europa League with his new wards. Then, however, they paid for the higher mentioned success by a failure at the inner arena. This time, the situation is not bad – the team is in the group of leaders most of the season. To tell the truth, the team appeared in a “pit” in the end of winter, and the chances of finishing in the top 4 became not so real. It goes without saying that soon “the Eagles” will be able to focus only on the Bundesliga. The German club overcame the group stage in a pretty proud manner, continuing its way together with Tottenham and leaving behind both Marseille and Sporting. Still, only a good start is reasonable to underline in the match against Napoli, which, however, did not result in goals. The guests, despite the missed by Khvicha penalty, achieved a confident two-goal advantage.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
