Europa League - Group Stage - Round 1

The Foxes started the season with a 1-0 win over City in the Super Cup. They have a 50% success rate in the league so far, they beat the unpleasant Wolves (1:0) and Norwich (1:2). They lost to West Ham (4:1) and City (0:1). Their team have a great quality and will be challenging for the top 4 in league again. An attack led by Vardy, with Barnes technically and speed-wise on the winger. The Soton duo of Verstegaard-Bertrand have come in to the defence, which only adds to the quality.

They will face the undefeated Napoli. It must be said, that the performances were not convincing at all and the wins were not easy. They beat Venezia (2:0), in Genoa they scored the decisive goal in the 84th minute (1:2) and in the last match against a weakened Juventus they also decided in the 85th minute (2:1). In no game have they had such a significant advantage. There is also a big question mark over the start of the visitors' star Mertens. He has missed the pre-season and matches.

Foxes don't lose at home. They defend their castle tightly and only lose at home to the very top teams of the league. After reinforcing the defense, that team is stronger and they are experienced enough in the attacking phase to score some goals.

My prediction: Draw No Bet - Leicester @ 1.66 (bet365)

This game has the potential to be tight, tense and low-scoring as both clubs are very evenly matched. Under 2.5 goals have been produced in each of Leicester's last three home games and i am expecting that this game will end up being goal-shy as well.

Under 2.5 goals @ 1.90 (bet365)

The quality of refereeing wasn't great, but a draw feels fair. Leicester were very clinical with their chances while Napoli were wasteful.
Osimhen MOTM scoring two beautiful goals.

1:39 - his first goal / 1:58 - his second goal

I think Napoli shouldn't have found themselves 2-0 down to begin with. Obviously great to still grab a draw but Napoli played better for large stretches and should've scored before and after Leicester went ahead. All in all probably not a bad result but Napoli can win games like these and can contend for the title in Italy imo but something just hasn't been there in the post Sarri years.
