Napoli to progress past Salzburg

On Thursday evening, Salzburg host Napoli at the Red Bull Arena in the Europa League last 16-second leg. The first leg in Naples finished 3-0 to the Italian side, which makes them big favourites to progress to the quarter finals.

Salzburg are top of the Austrian Bundesliga, but their recent form has been unusually inconsistent. The home sides recent form in the Europa League has also been patchy, as the defeat in the first leg means they have now lost two of their last three outings in the Europa League.

However, the Austrian team still have a strong record in the Europa League. In fact, they have won seven of their last nine outings in Europe’s secondary competition.

RB Salzburg’s recent home record in the Europa League is a good one, as they are unbeaten in 13 matches on home soil, having recorded 10 victories in 90 minutes. They have also kept clean sheets in nine of those unbeaten home matches.

Just like the home side, Napoli’s recent form has not been the most consistent. However, they have a decent recent record in the Europa League, winning four of their last five games in the competition, including their last four matches.

The Italian team has also been prolific in Europe of late, scoring at least two goals in their last four outings in the Europa League. The visitors attacking prowess has contributed to there being over 2.5 goals in four of their five matches in the Europa League.

Napoli also has a positive recent away record in this competition, winning five of their last six outings on their travels. The Italian side has also scored at least two goals in four of their last six away games in the Europa League.

Forebet predicts that Salzburg will record a victory in a high scoring game, but will suffer elimination from the competition due to the first leg defeat.
