Daily Tips – Die Bullen to charge past Napoli


RB Leipzig humbled Napoli 3-1 last week in the last 32 of the Europa League and I can see more of the same in the return leg.

On the face of it, Die Bullen’s result in Naples was a real statement of intent and will have given them oodles of confidence.

However, ask Maurizio Sarri quietly and he would probably admit the Europa League is an unwanted distraction, with his side a point clear of Juventus in their bid for a first Serie A title since 1990.

Sarri will again rotate in Germany but the same is also likely to be said of opposite number Ralph Hasenhuttl following Monday’s defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt.

Leipzig are the 10/11 favourites to do the business but with both preferring to play open, attacking football, I am backing the 2/1 for the home win and both to score.

In fact, it could be a good evening for those teams associated with Red Bull as Salzburg go looking to upset Real Sociedad.

A 2-2 draw in the opening leg has left the tie finely balanced but after scoring twice in San Sebastian, the Austrians will be confident.

The 27/20 on offer for the home win looks almost too good to turn down, especially when you consider Sociedad have not won on the road since November.

Finally, Lokomotiv Moscow’s 27/20 to beat Nice is another price that jumps out, considering they were the 3-2 winners last week on the Riviera.

Les Aiglons squandered a 2-0 lead in the first leg and having won two of their three homes games in qualifying, the Zheleznodorozhniki should progress with something to spare.
