Dnipro - Napoli, Europa League semifinal. In this post tips and match review of the second leg after the 1-1 in Italy.
It would be enough a 0-0 draw for Dnipro after the 1-1 in Naples and for that they should adopt a defensive gamestyle as showed in the first leg but actually in the whole competition.
This match will be held in Kiev and not in Dnipropetrovsk because of security reasons.
Ukrainian team has obtained its best results in home matches, but not during group stage where has lost against Inter and Qarabag, but has won in KO matches against Olympiakos, Ajax and Club Brugge always with the same result: 1-0.
Napoli has showed great performances in its away matches defeating 0-4 Trabzonspor and 1-4 Wolfsburg.
The match will be probably decided in the first 20 minutes.
Napoli will be attacking since the beginning trying to take advantage of their skills.
If Napoli finds a goal, Dnipro will be forced to attack, giving less importance to the defensive phase.
The perfect scenario for Napoli, really able to hit counterattacking as showed in Wolfsburg.
For this reason we like 2/2 half/full time which has really interesting odds.
As an alternative OVER 1.5 in the 2nd half because whatever will be the first half score, one of the two teams will be forced to attack in the second half, conceding empty spaces to the opponent, increasing goal possibilities.
DNIPRO: Boyko; Fedetskiy, Douglas, Cheberyachko, Léo
