Betting tip UEFA Champions League: SSC Neapel - Beşiktaş Istanbul
Wednesday, 19.10.2016 at 20:45
Napoli is favorite in home game
In the parallel game of group B Napoli and Besiktas Istanbul play against each other. The Italians have been flawless in their group so far and are in the lead. Besiktas could come within one point of their opponent if they win against Napoli. Kick-off is Wednesday at 8.45 PM.
Current form SSC Napoli
The South Italians had to swallow a bitter pill before the game against the Turkish top club. We are talking about their last game in Serie A against AS Roma. Totti and Co. beat Maurizio Sarri’s team pretty easily but deserved 3:1. This loss made Napoli slip to fifth place in the ranking. They have not been dangerous at all on offense in the game against Rome. The absence of Arkadiusz Milik seems to hurt Napoli more than expected. The only goal against Rome was scored by an inside defender, namely Coulibaly. So the leader of group B is not in top shape right now. They also lost the game before the one against Rome. Napoli was defeated by Atalanta Bergamo 0:1 and Napoli’s offense has not been good in that game either. It should be an uplift for the Italinas though that they can already secure a ticket for the elimination rounds if they win on Wednesday and the parallel game between Kiew and Benfica ends in a draw. Additionally it should be a boost that Napoli plays in front of their home crowd; after all they have not lost a point at home except against Rome. And only Milik is on the injured list, everybody else is fit to play.
Current form Besiktas Istanbul
Champions League has not been the strong suit of the traditional club from Turkey so far. They have been competing in Chmapions League six times and never made it out of the group phase. Unlike the Italians Istanbul is playing great in the Turkish league though. They are currently ranked second and have scored as many points as the leader Basaksehir. Besiktas is ranked in front of city rivals Galatasaray (17 points) and Fenerbahce (9 points). Additionally Besiktas has a stable defense as well as dangerous offensive players. They are in the top field of the league in scored and received goals with a ratio of 15:6. They are also one of very few teams who are undefeated in Europe. They drew in the Champions League against Benfica (1:1) and Kiew (1:1). They won five of seven league games and drew twice. They have not received a goal in their last two games and won them both 1:0. Against Napoli Oguzhan Özyakub, who is an important midfielder, is questionable however. Cenk Tosun is supposed to score the needed goals. He has scored five goals in seven league games so far. Additionally standard situations are one of Istanbul’s strengths. Both goals in Champions League have been scored after direct free kicks.
Napoli has the deeper roster and that despite Milik’s absence. Besiktas sees the chance of qualifying for the elimination phase though, especially if both opponents Kiew and Benfica take points from each other. We still believe that Napoli will be able to celebrate their fifth international victory in a row. Our recommendation: Tip 1.
