Reason For Napoli vs Red Star Belgrade Betting Tips

Napoli aren’t exactly a bad side, but when they were drawn alongside the super rich PSG and last year’s Champions League finalists Liverpool, they weren’t given much hope of progressing past the group stages this season. However, with just 2 games remaining in the group stages, the Italian side sit at the top of Group C and knowing that a win on Wednesday could potentially seal their place in the knockout rounds.

There isn’t much in it though. They are level on points with Liverpool at the moment and only 1 ahead of PSG in 3rd. Even more surprising is the fact that Red Star Belgrade are just 1 shock win away from edging into the top 2 positions, after their incredible win at home to Liverpool last time out.

However, the Serbian minnows seem to be a completely different side when they’re on their travels. They have taken 4 points from their 2 home games against Napoli and Liverpool, but away from home they have shipped 10 goals in 2 games and scored just 1. Napoli will certainly be looking to take advantage of this fear of travelling.

The Serie A side have already beaten Liverpool on home soil this season, and they managed to take a point from PSG in their last Champions League outing as well. Admittedly the goals have been harder to come by, but at home to a Red Star side who shipped 6 at PSG and 4 at Liverpool, they will be expected to remedy this.

Napoli have scored 3 or more goals on 5 occasions this season though, and just a few weeks ago they demolished Empoli 5-1 at home too. They also netted 2 away to PSG last month, so the goals are definitely there to be had.

We’re predicting another complete collapse from the Red Star Belgrade defence. Against both PSG and Liverpool they only held firm for 20 minutes at the back, and on both occasions the floodgates were opened wide at that point. They scored 8 goals in their 3 Champions League home games last season, and we think backing a Napoli Over 2.5 Team Goals bet is a good idea along with a 4-0 correct score predictions.
