Napoli have made a relatively sluggish start to their 2023/24 season compared to last term, with the Naples side having accrued just eight points from their opening five Serie A clashes. However, they did make a winning start to their Champions League campaign when scoring a late winner away to Braga a fortnight ago.

Rudi Garcia has a tough act to follow after replacing Luciano Spalletti in the summer, with his team being slight favourites to win this encounter against a Real Madrid side who left it very late before downing Union Berlin in their group opener. It was that man Jude Bellingham who found the net in injury time which means they are up and running.

There are obvious faults in both teams right now and perhaps a draw is the best option when it comes to the latest match betting. It’s an outcome which would suit both teams in terms of reaching the knockout stage of the competition, with the bookies anticipating that the two sides are likely to find the net during the ninety minutes.

Victor Osimhen was the subject of plenty of transfer speculation in the summer and the Nigerian carries a scoring threat despite failing to find the net in many of his recent clashes, with Rodrygo aiming to compensate for the departure of Karim Benzema. It’s easy to see a scoring draw here and you could do worse than back the 1-1 or 2-2 on the correct score markets.
