Manchester City vs Napoli Match Preview
A rampant Manchester City will hope to continue its scoring run from the English Premier League when it takes on the free-scoring Serie A leaders Napoli in a Champions League group stage encounter at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night.
City continued their extraordinary tryst with goals when they demolished Stoke City 7-2 in the Premier League. They now have scored 29 goals in just eight matches and look to have come a long way from the frustrating spells against Brighton, Everton, and Bournemouth in the opening matches. Pep Guardiola’s team look irrepressible going forward but problems at the back persist – as exposed by Stoke’s two goals in the weekend. In the Champions League, City top Group F with six points from two matches. After a 4-0 away win at Feyenoord, City won 2-0 at home against Shakhtar. They have won nine of their last 10 home matches and have been in great scoring form at home as 18 of the last 27 matches ended with over 2.5 goals.
Napoli will be a huge test for City’s European credentials considering their free-scoring run in the Serie A. A 1-0 win against AS Roma in the weekend gave them eight wins out of eight in which they have scored 26 goals. In Champions League, though, they had mixed results so far with three points from two matches giving them third place in the group. After a surprise 2-1 reverse at Shakhtar, Napoli bounced back to win 3-1 at home against Feyenoord. Their away record looks good with seven wins and two losses in their last 10 matches. Napoli matches are always exciting because of the goals and 24 out of their last 29 matches away from home ended with over 2.5 goals.
