Napoli vs Red Bull Salzburg Free Betting Predictions and Odds
After the furious start in the premier class Salzburg had to give twice the double despite strong performance the group favorites.

Napoli – Statistics & Current Form
With his two goals in Wals-Siezenheim, the 32-year-old Belgian could write double history. His goal to 1: 0 was the 1,000. An Italian team in the UEFA Champions League scored the same goal as Diego Armando Maradona (115) in the club’s historic scoreboard. The second goal made sure that he overtook the club legend and is only five goals behind Marek Hamsik (121).
The away win in the Mozart city could not be expected despite the great quality in the Ancelotti squad. In recent years, the Partenopei was anything but strong abroad. The victory in Austria was the first away win on the international stage after eight unsuccessful attempts (0-3-5).
However, the away weakness is not only evident in the international competitions, but also in the domestic championship. On Saturday, the Partenopei guest in the capital Rome and had beaten in the top match against AS Roma with 1: 2. The Pole Arkadiusz Milik scored in the closing stages of the first goal and was able to underline his strong form. In the recent four league games Milik has scored six goals.
In the recent five league games Napoli celebrated only one victory. The vice champion can thus early on any Scudetto hopes buried. In seventh place, the Ancelotti team are ten points behind Juventus. The Italians are not in top form and therefore we advise against Napoli and Red Bull Salzburg from the prediction on the home win at the current odds.
Another positive feature was the comeback of defender Konstantinos Manolas. In addition, Elseid Hysaj stood for the first time in weeks in the squad. Napoli will have to do without right-back Kevin Malcuit (torn ACL) in the coming months. Allan and Faouzi Ghoulam will also not be available against the Bulls.
Expected lineup of Napoli:
↳ Meret – Lorenzo, Koulibaly, Manolas, Hysaj – Insigne, Zielinski, Ruiz, Callejon – Mertens, Milik

Red Bull Salzburg – Statistics & Current Form
The many departures at Red Bull Salzburg in the summer of 2019 caused much misunderstanding. Finally, the club had finally made it to the premier class and still sold the main players. The CL suitability was agreed to the club anyway and even in the national championship saw the competition a chance to take the place in the sun again.
In early November, these critics should once again remember their own words or take a look at the tables and the achievements of the march-elf. The dominance of the Bulls Elf is even clearer this year than in previous seasons. In the Austrian Bundesliga Salzburg ranked eleven wins and two draws as usual at the top.
Salzburg has now played 19 competitive matches in the current season, scoring no less than 78 goals. On average, this makes more than four goals per game! There are not only wins in the league against teams like Sankt Pölten or Hartberg, but the offensive also works in the premier class.
As only seventh team Salzburg scored in a CL half-time five goals (in 6-2 debut victory against Genk). Meanwhile, eleven Champions League matches to book, only Bayern Munich (13) cheered more often. Norwegian shooting star bride Erling Haaland is currently the top scorer in the premier class with six goals (the first player to score six in his first three CL games).
The games against Liverpool and SSC Napoli, however, have shown that the defensive still does not have the necessary level to survive against top teams can. The round of 16 has long since moved into the distance and without points in the San Paolo, the chance will probably only be theoretical. In the top match between Napoli and Red Bull Salzburg, X2 odds of 2.00 are offered for the prediction on double chance.
It will be a special match for left-back Andreas Ulmer, who will be the first Austrian ever to play for the 100th time on Tuesday in a European Cup match. However, Jesse Marsch will be without goalkeepers Cican Stankovic and Alexander Walke as well as Patrick Farkas and Antoine Bernede due to injury.
Expected formation of Red Bull Salzburg:
↳ Miguel – Ulmer, Wöber, Ramalho, Kristensen – Szoboszlai, Junuzovic, Mwepu, Minamino – Daka, Haaland

⚽️ 02.11.2019 – Mattersburg vs Red Bull Salzburg 0: 3 (Bundesliga)

Key Facts – Napoli vs Red Bull Salzburg tips
⭐️ With a win, Napoli has the round-sixteen ticket in his pocket (except Genk wins at Anfield)
⭐️ The individual class of the Italians made in the first leg for the difference!
⭐️ Haaland is the top scorer in the current CL season with six goals!
Accordingly, the prediction would have to be directed towards the over 3.5, so that acceptable odds are offered. However, the key question will be: does Marsch still believe in his unconditional offensive play, or are adaptations performed abroad in the hands of a strong home team? The defensive has been overwhelmed in the Champions League so far, a little more security and cautious offensive rank seems obvious.
After all, the Bulls urgently need counters to save the mini-chance of the knockout round in the premier class. The Bulls do not have to play for victory from the first minute, so it would not be surprising if the first few minutes are the time to defend their own defense. So, we found what we were looking for between Napoli and Salzburg at the suggestion that the first goal will be scored at the earliest in minute 21.
