Napoli vs Manchester City Preview – Can Napoli Stop City Juggernaut?

Champions League Media

Napoli seek to get revenge for the recent defeat at the hands of Manchester City at the Etihad stadium. This defeat was hugely damaging to Napoli’s hopes of qualification to the knockout stages, let alone topping their group. The loss against City coupled with the positive result for Shakhtar Donetsk means that Napoli are outside the top two places entering into this match. As it stands, the Italian Serie A table leaders will only be able to reach the Europa League.

Maurizio Sarri’s team has been able to quickly recover from this loss against City a couple of weeks ago, as they have been able to remain top of their league. Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola’s team have gone from strength to strength after establishing a five point advantage at the top of the table. City are the overwhelming favourites for the Premier League while they can also be considered as potential challenges to the Champions League. Yet, facing Napoli at the Stadio San Paolo requires a lot of hard work in order to emerge successful.

Of course, aside from the usual TV stations that will broadcast the match, you can watch it live online. There are a few free sites that offer live streaming, the best ones being Livetv.sx and SportStream.Site. Either way, you are ok with those.

Napoli will know that a positive result in this game is a must if they are to go into the next Champions League home match against Shakhtar Donetsk with the possibility of qualification to the knockout stages. City have a six-point advantage over Napoli coming into this match, while they have been able to win the last 13 matches in all competitions. Yet, away games have shown the slight wobbles from the club, who are setting new standards in terms of attacking football.
This will be City’s first visit to the Stadio San Paolo since 2011 when they lost 2-1. However, this match comes under different circumstances with City stronger than ever before. Even though Napoli have been able to get some outstanding results so far this season, they are to big disadvantage coming into this match as they face a much better team in all aspects.
