Betting Tip: Napoli -1.00 @ 10/11 with bet365

Napoli’s best chance of Champions League football next season is by winning the Europa League, with Uefa granting the victors in this competition a place at Europe’s top table.

Rafael Benitez’s team are four points behind third-placed Lazio with four games left although they have been handed a favourable semi-final draw in the Europa League and will look to make hay at the Stadio San Paolo.

Napoli have been scoring for fun in front of their own supporters recently and also put Wolfsburg to the sword in the last round when winning 4-1 in Germany. It’s a team with lots of dangerous attacking players including Marek Hamsik and Gonzalo Higuain, both of whom found the net during Sunday’s routine win against Milan.

Dnipro are something of an unknown in Europe although they sit second in the Ukrainian Premier League. They are a point better off than Shakhtar Donetsk and their away form this season has been nine wins from eleven matches.

The visitors will look to keep things tight in this first leg as they did in Belgium during the last round. A goalless draw against FC Bruges set up and opportunity to go through, which they duly took by winning 1-0.

Former Blackburn striker Nikola Kalinic will lead the line for Dnipro although one suspects that Napoli can win this match with something to spare, especially as Rafael Benitez is such a good manager when it comes to European competitions.
