Napoli v Red Bull Salzburg: Expect more fireworks from explosive Austrians

Red Bull Salzburg manager Jesse Marsch
Will Jesse Marsch be applauding his Red Bull Salzburg side after their match with Napoli?

Even in defeat Red Bull Salzburg manage to impress and Dan Fitch is banking on them being involved in another goal-laden game when they face Napoli.

"Only Bayern Munich have scored more goals in the group stage than Red Bull’s eleven."

Back Napoli to beat Red Bull Salzburg and both teams to score at 2.829/5

Napoli face second game against Champions League entertainers

Napoli remain top of Group E after an entertaining 3-2 victory over Red Bull Salzburg in their last outing.

Salzburg twice fought back to level the scores, before Lorenzo Insigne's winning goal for Napoli. The Austrians might struggle to make the knockout stages in a group that features teams as strong as Napoli and Liverpool, but they are nevertheless making a major impact on the competition.

Only Bayern Munich have scored more goals in the group stage than Red Bull's eleven. Their 19-year old striker Erling Braut Haaland has scored six of them, which includes both of the goals that they scored against Napoli. Haaland is the top scorer in the Champions League, despite only playing 196 minutes in the competition so far.

Since Napoli beat Red Bull they have failed to win in three matches. Draws with SPAL and Atalanta were followed by 2-1 defeat at Roma on Saturday. These results have seen Napoli slip down to seventh place in Serie A, eleven points shy of the leaders Juventus, though still within three points of the top four.

Big price for Napoli to do double

Napoli might be without a win in three, but given their home advantage and the fact that they beat Red Bull just a couple of weeks ago, their price of 1.9210/11 seems rather generous.

Red Bull Salzburg might have given it a good go against Napoli and in their away match with Liverpool, but they have ultimately lost both matches and were never ahead in either. The odds for a Napoli win are already tempting, but if you want to boost them you can back a home victory and both teams to score at 2.829/5.
