Being the isolated leader of the Premier League and adding by victories all the games of the Champions League,
but it is also true that this can lead to some relaxation of Pep Guardiola’s team that the Neapolitans can enjoy.
To the leader of the Italian Series only the triumph interests and arguments does not lack to undo the City, even because the Italian team has vertigo in the attack and a great simplicity of processes
and incredible as it may seem he has not yet missed Higuain in this almost a year and a half of competition as Dries Mertens has been simply fabulous as false 9, discovering the Belgian a new facet in his game – born finisher.
It was not by chance that even entering the second half at Luz last season did what she wanted from the defense incarnate, it was not by chance that Mertens scored 28 goals in the last edition of the Italian series, Mertens also an easy and incisive feint,
plays with the ball glued to the feet and a great placing of shot, attributes that make it very difficult to score.
On the other hand, City will appear somewhat lame on the left side of the defense with Delph and I highly doubt that Delph has legs for “Speedy Gonzalez” Callejón and it may be there that the defensive wall of the City may fall.
But it will also not be easy for a man like Stones to face a Mertens with such a low center of gravity.
Milik is the only low of the Neapolitans for this game and the citizens have Mendy and Kompany as certain casualties.
Prognosis Napoles vs Manchester City:
Napoli after a home draw with Inter, added two more Serie A Italian wins with Genoa (3-2, away) and Sassuolo (3-1, home).
City, for the league, beat Burnley (home) and WBA 3-2 (away) and eliminated the Wolves on penalties for the League Cup.
