Feyenoord vs SSC Napoli Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Napoli are still looking to book their place into the Champions League knockout stages when they travel to the Stadion Feijenoord to take on the Eredivisie reigning champions Feyenoord on Wednesday night. Feyenoord were unlucky to lose 1-0 on the road at Manchester City last time out in the Champions League, as Raheem Sterling scored the winner for the Citizens with just two minutes to go. On the contrary, SSC Napoli won 3-0 at home over Shakhtar Donetsk thanks to three second-half goals from Lorenzo Insigne, Piotr Zielinski and Dries Mertens. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview. Feel free to visit our Bet of the day page to check our best daily tips.

Feyenoord Preview

Feyenoord have suffered defeats in each of their five Champions League group fixtures, having scored just three goals in the process. This leaves Feyenoord bottom of the group F table with no points to their name after five rounds, which means that their European campaign is beyond repair now. Feyenoord have also struggled throughout their Eredivisie campaign this season, as they find themselves only 5th in the standings with 25 points after 14 rounds, already 14 points adrift of the current leaders PSV Eindhoven. The Rotterdammers enter the fray on the back of two consecutive league victories, having conceded none in the process. Their recent home form have also been decent as they are unbeaten in three competitive home fixtures. The bad news is that Feyenoord haven’t registered a home victory in the Champions League, group stage to final, since a 2-1 win over Spartak Moscow back in 2011. Furthermore, the Rotterdammers are winless in six meetings with Italian opponents since a 1-0 victory over Inter Milan back in the UEFA Cup campaign in 2001/02. Steven Berghuis has been Feyenoord’s most dangerous player this season, scoring eight goals across all competitions.

Feyenoord Team News

Sofyan Amrabat, Miquel Nelom and Karim El Ahmadi are all doubts, but Ridgeciano Haps and Jan-Arie van der Heijden are both missing through injury. The good news is that Eric Fernando Botteghin is back in training following his knee injury.

SSC Napoli Preview

On the contrary, Napoli were on a four-game winless streak across all competitions prior to their 0-1 home loss against Juventus in the Serie A last Friday. This was Napoli’s sole defeat in 15 Serie A fixtures this season, leaving them second in the standings with just one point behind the current leaders Inter. Regarding their Champions League campaign, the Partenopei were touted as second favourites for this group, but they are now in danger to miss the qualification for the next stage of the competition. Napoli need to win here and hope that the already-qualified Manchester City will beat Shakhtar Donetsk. Napoli currently lie third in the group F table with six points after five rounds, three points of the second-placed Shakhtar Donetsk. The bad news is that Napoli have lost three of their last four Champions League trips, but they managed to score at least once in each of these. The positive fact is that Napoli have only lost three of their last 15 away games across all competitions while winning ten. Lorenzo Insigne is Napoli’s top scorer throughout this Champions League group stage campaign with three goals under his belt, while Dries Mertens has helped the team with two goals and three assists.

SSC Napoli Team News

Arkadiusz Milik and Faouzi Ghoulam are both missing through injury, while Lorenzo Insigne and Mario Rui are both doubts.
