Genk vs Napoli prediction

Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli picked up three points at home to Liverpool in matchday one and could do with following that up with another win in Belgium on Wednesday.

The Italian side are in pole position to top a group that includes last season’s Champions League winners, as well as a Red Bull Salzburg side that have made an impressive start to their campaign.

Indeed, the Austrian champions and current leaders hammered Genk 6-2 two weeks ago, which suggests Wednesday’s hosts are the weak link in this group.

Ancelotti has a number of attacking talents in his squad to choose from in case he wants to rotate before a potentially tricky tie at Torino domestically on Sunday.

Lorenzo Insigne, Jose Callejon and Dries Mertens are the attacking stars, but Fernando Llorente already has two league goals following his move from Tottenham Hotspur, and Hirving Lozano has the potential to set the world alight.

The odds suggest a comfortable away victory and I have to agree with the bookmakers on this one. Napoli’s attack will simply be too strong for a side that shipped six goals in their first outing in this season’s tournament.
