Betting Tip: @ 50/1 with boyle

Gonzalo Higuain’s hat-trick for Napoli in the Europa League last 16 first leg against Dinamo Moscow almost guarantees that he will be among the goals in the second leg.

With the Russian outfit bound to be pushing for goals, it may leave them exposed at the back, and the Argentina attacker can reap the rewards. He is 50/1 with BoyleSports to net three again, which would take his tally in the Europa League this season to nine strikes.

Higuain has yet again been clinical for Napoli this season, and will be vital as the Italian outfit pursue a cup double, and aim to secure a Champions League place in Serie A. So far, the 27-year-old has netted 23 goals in 41 appearances across all competitions this term, so odds of 11/8 to score anytime with SkyBet could be worth a punt.

Despite admitting that the first leg was “difficult”, Higuain is confident about his side’s ability to advance.

“It was a difficult game, especially after they scored so early, but fortunately we won and can go to Russia with a good margin,” Higuain said in the run-up to the second leg.

“We will suffer in the second leg, but Napoli can progress in the competition. I don’t think it’s a problem that we didn’t get the fourth goal. We have all it takes to reach the quarter-finals.”

“I feel good, I am playing consistently and hope to now win in Serie A too. The whole team wants to win and we are all leaders.

“There’s a long way to go, but we can make this a great season.”

Although he didn’t score first in Italy, Higuain is 5/1 to break the deadlock with Coral and, having scored what was deemed as the ‘perfect hat-trick’ in Naples, using his left foot, right foot and head, he will know that form is in his favour.
