Swansea v Napoli. Yet another away win?
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]his looks tough for Swansea tonight who have only won four of their last 16 matches and face a Napoli side in far better form.
The two sides have never met but it’s no surprise to see Napoli marked up as favourites at around 5/4 with Star Sports.
Swansea are 10th in the Premier League but such is the compact nature of the table can hardly be considered safe yet being just eight points off the bottom three.
Swansea’s head coach Garry Monk is set to field a stronger team than he did at the weekend when Swansea were dumped out of the FA Cup by Everton. However, he will be without Spain forward Michu who has not recovered from an ankle injury.
Napoli’s top scorer Gonzalo Higuain is struggling with a back injury picked up in Sunday’s 2-0 triumph at Sassuolo.
Napoli are currently third in Serie A and boss Rafael Benitez is bidding to become the first manager to win the Europa League with three different clubs (Valencia and Chelsea).
I’m taking Napoli to win away from home – continuing the theme of the week for away wins.
