Leicester City narrowly missed out on the Champions League places last season and will now embark on a Europa League adventure, with an attractive tie to kick things off when they clash with one of the leading football teams in Italy. Brendan Rodgers will hope that a full house can cheer the Foxes to an opening victory.

Jamie Vardy is likely to lead the line and the English side are warm favourites with the bookies although we would be wary backing Leicester based on a largely unconvincing start to the season, with an undeserved 1-0 win over Wolves being followed by a 4-1 hammering by West Ham and then came a slender victory at Carrow Road.

We think that goals could be scored at both ends when Napoli come to the Midlands, with Luciano Spalletti’s team potentially capable of challenging for the Serie A title this season. Lorenzo Insigne is capable of scoring lots of goals and was part of a successful Italy team at Euro 2020, while Hirving Lozano also offers a big threat.

This game could have a big bearing on which team wins the section and it could be a typically end-to-end encounter, with Over 2.5 Goals looking like the most attractive bet.
