Napoli v Shakhtar Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams To Score

Football - UEFA Champions League - 21 Nov 19:45

Napoli come into this encounter against Shakhtar today aiming to build on their success in recent weeks especially where they top the table in the Serie A. A solid 2-1 victory over Milan in mid-week helps them to maintain their lead at the top of the table by 2 points; but now face a tough test against Shakhtar with anything other than victory; assuring them of not progressing to the knockout stages of the Champions League. All the pressure will be on their offensive unit in Hamsik, Mertens, Insigne and Callejon to deliver the goals that could see them through to the next stage. Napoli have struggled losing 3 out of their 4 games played so far with only victory against Feyenoord helping them to this stage and will need to step up especially defensively, since they have leaked 9 goals in their 4 games played so far.

Shakhtar know that the business is relatively simple, secure a draw and secure the progress to the next stage of the competition. While they travel away to Italy; their aim will be to score a goal early on and then sit back and defend to protect their lead and their chances to progress to the next stage. While they lost 2-0 to Man City; they kept them quiet for large stretches of the game, before conceding 2 goals in the 2nd half. Other than that they have beaten Feyenoord twice and a solid 2-1 win at home against Napoli in their first encounter. While Shakhtar have been good form; defensively, they have struggled defensively, conceding in 5 straight games and in all of their 4 Champions League encounters until now.

With Napoli needing a positive win and Shakhtar only focussed to secure a draw; this game should be high scoring and I am backing Over 2.5 Goals & both to score in this encounter.
