German side Wolfsburg have been having a brilliant season so far this year and are hitting a real high point after losing just 1 match out of their last 2. Having said this though, they have not been so strong in their Europa League matches and Manager Dieter Hecking will want his team to put down a real performance against Napoli on Thursday night. The Italian’s are fresh from an impressive 3-0 home win over Fiorentinawhich ended a 5-game winless run which will have to be followed up if they want to build form. This though seems a daunting task against an in-form Wolfsburg side, especially away from home, and a top football tipster seems rather reluctant it might happen. Wolfsburg have won their last 9 competitive fixtures at the Volkswagen Arena and a sports betting expert is confident this one will be their tenth. The home side have only Aaron Hunt missing with the return of Luiz Gustavo being a positive boost after sitting out at the weekend suspended. Napoli manager Rafa Benitez must make do without injured duo Walter Gargano and Michu and GokhanInler will replace Gargano alongside David Lopez in the midfield. The manager is also considering whether to give one, or both, out of MarekHamsik and Lorenzo Insigne a start, but a top football pick would be that neither will start this one.
Our Probable Formations:
Wolfsburg (18.104.22.168) Benaglio, Vieirinha, Naldo, Knoche, Rodriguez, Gullavogui, Gustavo, Perisic, De Bruyne, Calliguuri and Dost.
Napoli (22.214.171.124) Andujar, Maggio, Albiol, Koullibaly, Strinic, Lopez, Inler, Callejon, Gabbiadini, Mertens and Higuain.
BetAdvisor Top Tips:
The best football prediction would take into account the fact that Napoli have kept a clean sheet in 6 out of their last 7 matches in the Europa League and that both teams have been undefeated in at least 5 of their last matches this will be a close one. We would suggest an under 2.5 as the best betting pick with a home side win if you really have to choose one!
