Napoli vs AZ Alkmaar Prediction 22 October 2020

Tournament: UEFA Europa League
Location: Stadio San Paolo
Match date: 10/22/2020 at 18:55

The next match of the first matchday of the Europa League will take place in Naples, where local Napoli will host Dutch AZ.

Napoli made it to the Europa League group for the first time in five years after having played consistently in the Champions League. This stems from the failure in the past season, when the Parthenopeans finished only seventh. And now Gattuso's men resemble the best version of themselves again. In the four starting rounds of Serie A, they got three confident victories.

But for the Dutch vice-champions AZ, troubled times have come. First, Cheeseheads were eliminated from Dynamo Kyiv in the Champions League qualification (0:2). And then, not recovering from that blow, they got four draws at once in four meetings of Eredivisie. And each time Alkmaarders lost three points in the last minutes.

The hosts are considered the obvious favorites of this pair, since right now they are much more stable than their Dutch counterparts. We do not exclude a scenario in which the Italians score at least a goal in each half, because AZ's defense is far from ideal now.
