SSC Napoli is ready to make it a back to back wins in Group E. Having the struggled in disgrace on a 6 – 2 domination in the opening game of Champions League Group E matches versus Red Bull Salzburg, the host will out to replenish some pride against the visitors this week. Genk’s break up would have been a serious upset to the system, although they come back with two wins of domestic matches on the spin, some expect the Belgians to make it a magic trick of wins against Napoli on this week. Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti’s squad opened their Champions League campaign with an impressive performance of 2 – 0 victory against the title holders Liverpool in Naples, although the SSC Napoli usually fails to face their supreme home turf showcase in European on the road games. The host is currently winless for their six Champions League on the road matches, and their last on the road conquest of any description in the tournament was came from the entire way back then in 2017 against Nice.

The upcoming fixture represents an opportunity to change that worst record more positively, however, Napoli is in good condition to beat the Genk squad that was pound for six coming from their last UCL outing. The host on the road form has been performing well in late. Ancelotti’s squad emerged as the winners from two coming from their three league matches on a trip since the summer, and the Italian Champions Juventus was their lone victor. The host raided a remarkable 11 goals in that trio of on the road campaigns, although the fact that they shipped seven at the other end recommends that there are intervals that can take advantage of in their backline. Genk is noticeable for being the weakest squad in the group and with that considered, we strongly suggest and backing the Napoli and both squads to score combination for this upcoming matchup.
