SSC Napoli Preview

Napoli maintained their place at the top of the Serie A table on Saturday following a 3-1 victory at home to struggling Sassuolo. Midfielder Allan put Napoli ahead after 22 minutes, but they faced a moment of worry when opposition striker Diego Falcinelli made it 1-1 in the 41st minute. However, goals from Jose Callejon and Dries Mertens ensured they would not drop points for just the second time this term, thus keeping their two-point lead at the top of the Serie A table over 2nd-placed Inter Milan. The main contributing factor to their success so far this season has been a potent attack, with the team scoring 32 goals from their first 11 games and they have failed to score just once in all competitions this season. Belgian forward Mertens has himself scored 11 goals already this season, picking up where he left off last season by continuing to be just as prolific this time around. Napoli have a 100% record at home in this competition so far this term, defeating both Nice and Feyenoord on home turf, though this is the toughest test they have faced so far by some distance.

Arkadiusz Milik (knee) is Napoli’s only injury absentee for this meeting.

Manchester City Preview

There’s just no stopping Manchester City in the Premier League at this moment in time, as the team romped to yet another victory at the weekend, this time coming during their visit to West Brom. A frantic opening 15 minutes saw both teams find the back of the net, with Jay Rodriguez cancelling out Leroy Sane’s opener before Fernandinho quickly restored City’s lead. Raheem Sterling made an instant impact by netting the away side’s third of the afternoon just three minutes after coming on from the bench, and although Matt Phillips netted in stoppage time, Pep Guardiola’s side held on for a 3-2 win to stay five points clear at the top of the Premier League table. With that win, it’s now 13 wins in a row for City in all competitions, boasting a complete record of 14 victories and a draw from their 15 outings. However, they have struggled away from home in the Champions League in recent seasons, despite winning 4-0 away to Feyenoord earlier in the group stages. Prior to that emphatic victory in Rotterdam, City had gone four games without an away win in the Champions League proper, as Guardiola saw his side draw twice and lose twice in their four away games last term.

Defenders Vincent Kompany (calf) and Benjamin Mendy (calf) are both ruled out of this clash through injury.
