Leicester City vs Napoli Betting Tips

Leicester City are playing against Napoli in the Europa match on the 17th of September in the King Power Stadium, Leicester at 00:30 IST. One team have a terrific recent record while the other is showing their inconsistent self. This match could turn out to be the make or break type of game for the sides going forward.

Leicester City Form and Team News

In the league, they have played four games so far, winning two and losing two. Leicester has made quite a bad start to the season by their standards. They are placed in the outside the top five as of now. Leicester in the last season was one of the best teams on display with their league showing, they were placed in the top four for most of the season. But then, a very bad last five games in the league were enough to get them down to the fifth position at the end of the season, thus they are now without a champions league qualification, but have a Europa League qualification under their belt. They are placed alongside Spartak, Legia and Napoli in Group C of the Europa this season. They are playing against Napoli in the next match at home on Friday.

Manager Brendan Rodgers did a decent job while being at the helm last year helping the team finish in the top five at the end of the league, but he could be counting the number of opportunities his team let slip away in the last five games where they have been winless and to make matters worse, they even got kicked out of Champions League qualification after this. He would want this team to continue the season with nothing less than a win here against Napoli which could well be the statement in the making for this season. 

Napoli Form and Team News

In Serie A, they have played three games so far, winning all three games quite comfortably, though Genoa stretched it a bit. They are placed in the third position as of now even though its early doors. Napoli in the last season was one of the most exciting teams on display with their goal scoring prowess, they conceded quite a few goals also thus finishing outside the top four.  After the stupendous 16 match unbeaten streak came to an end at the hands of Benevento last week, Napoli can still afford a sigh of relief as this game was a club friendly game and not a competitive game. They in this season would want to erase whatever was done wrong during the last season and continue on what’s working for them. They are playing against Leicester in the next match at home on Friday as the opening game in their Europa campaign this season.

Luciano Spalletti has been given the reigns as the new Napoli manager and he comes in with an extraordinary appetite for leading his team into winning on multiple occasions wherever he has plied his trade in. Fabian Ruiz could become a vital cog in the Napoli midfield and if he happens to have a great season, Napoli will certainly finish with more silverwares. Insigne and Mertens will score goals but will they score enough and when needed, that’s what matters at the end of the day. Koulibaly was linked with transfer rumors all throughout but the Senegalese has chosen to stay over.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Napoli have been phenomenal in the last three games with almost everything going their way. They are strong at home and on the road as well. The recent record is also favoring the Italian side as well. They are expected to continue their excellent run on the road to Leicester here as well. Lots of goals are expected. This match could well give us a picture of whether or not there is a change of approach from Roger’s men after the loss in the last match. 

Tip 1: Total Goals over 2.5

In the last three games that Leicester City have played across competitions, two matches have had the total goals over 2.5. At home, Leicester City in the last five matches, have had two matches where the total goal count to be over 2.5. Napoli on the other hand has had seven out of the last nine matches when the total goals were over 2.5. Playing away, Napoli in the last five matches have had four matches where the score line read more than 2.5 goals. Napoli in this tournament has had the last game to be over 2.5 goals as well. So, it’s more likely that the match between Leicester and Napoli will have more than 2.5 goals in total. According to the Casumo Sportsbook, the odds for the total goals to be over 2.5 is 1.72.

Tip 2: Both teams to score

Leicester in the last three matches played across competitions have had two matches where both teams have scored. Playing at home, in the last five matches, two of Leicester’s matches have had both teams scoring. Napoli across just the league has seen five of the last six matches where both teams have scored. Napoli while playing away have had both of their last two games too where both teams have scored. So with all the above stats and considering the home advantage that Leicester possess, Napoli who are known for their watertight defense will still find it difficult to contain the strikers of Leicester and in turn we can expect the match to have both teams scoring. The odds for both teams to score is 1.56 according to the Casumo Sportsbook. 


Both teams have begun contrastingly. Napoli have their objective cut out while Leicester would want to turn around their inconsistent form and then start building on the momentum into the league. Summarizing on a couple of tips from above:

  1. Total Goals over 2.5 @ 1.72.
  2. Both teams to score @ 1.56.
