Napoli vs Braga Predictions


Napoli are in very poor shape recently and they don’t even have to win this match to advance. I will back in-form visitors with a double chance on Tuesday.

  • Napoli have lost 4 of their last 5 matches
  • Braga are unbeaten in 8 of their last 9 matches
  • Braga’s Simon Banza has scored 3 goals in his last 2 matches

Head to Head


This is going to be the third head to head encounter between these two sides.

Napoli were victorious on both occasions, 2-1 in September and 3-1 in August 2012.

Napoli Form


Results haven’t improved for Napoli even after they appointed Walter Mazzarri as the new head manager in November.

The reigning Serie A champions were defeated by Juventus 1-0 last weekend which was their third consecutive loss across competitions, previously losing to Inter Milan 3-0 and Real Madrid 4-2.

Napoli gathered seven points in five UCL rounds so far. They were victorious against Sporting Braga 2-1 and Union Berlin 1-0, while losing to Real Madrid on both occasions.

Mathias Oliveira and Mario Rui are injured.

Braga Form


Braga will need a miracle to advance to the playoffs on Tuesday. They need to beat Napoli by at least two goals to achieve that.

Braguistas have been in great form recently, winning four of their last five games across competitions against Arouca 1-0, Portimonense 4-1, Estoril 3-1 and Vizela 3-1. The only time they failed to win was against Union Berlin 1-1 in late November.

Simon Banza has been in red-hot form recently, scoring three goals in his last two Primeira Liga appearances.

Braga Team News


There are no suspended or injured players for Braga at the moment.

Verdict

Braga won four of their last five matches across competitions, while Napoli lost three straight duels. I see value in backing the Portuguese side with a double chance and in-form Simon Banza to score.
