Yevhen Seleznev’s late equaliser at the Stadio San Paolo last week means that Dnipro are in the box seat when it comes to reaching the Europa League final.

Napoli had been warm favourites to establish a first leg advantage although a 1-1 draw with their Ukrainian opponents means that Rafael Benitez’s side must go on the offensive on Thursday if they are to make the final.

Napoli are three points off the Champions League spots with an inferior goal difference to third-placed Lazio which means they will put their heart and soul into this match, with the Naples side having already recorded some stunning victories on the road in Europe.

That includes a 4-1 triumph at Wolfsburg and a 4-0 thrashing of Trabzonspor, with Benitez now looking to mastermind something similar against tricky opponents who are doing well domestically.

Dnipro are third in the standings and perhaps the players were distracted by this match when losing 2-0 at home to Zorya at the weekend, with the team having previously been eleven games unbeaten in front of their own fans.

Napoli have scored in their past nine matches and it’s worth a punt on them claiming a victory within ninety minutes which would line up a probable Europa League final against Sevilla.
