Napoli v Eintracht Frankfurt: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview
Napoli and Eintracht Frankfurt meet for the second leg of their Champions League last-16 clash on Wednesday night, with the current Serie A leaders boasting a 2-0 advantage from Hesse (8pm kick-off, UK time).
Luciano Spalletti has overseen an extraordinary domestic campaign, with Napoli currently 18 points clear at the top of Serie A, but the Italian coach will be eyeing up further success in Europe as well. His Parthenopeans host Frankfurt for the second leg of their last 16 clash with a 2-0 aggregate advantage from last month.
Oliver Glasner’s Europa League winners fell to the might of Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Co as the Italian champions-elect silenced a cacophonous Waldstadion. Goals from Victor Osimhen and Giovanni Di Lorenzo gave Napoli a 2-0 lead in the first leg, and it could have been worse had Kvaratskhelia not missed a penalty.

Napoli v Eintracht Frankfurt match stats
Khvicha Kvaratskhelia has provided four assists in the Champions League this season, the most by any Napoli player in a single campaign. The fleet-footed Georgian has generated the most scoring opportunities after a carry of any player in the competition this term (16), firing in 12 shots and creating four chances in this fashion.
Frankfurt have a tall order if they are to turn this fixture around as Napoli remain unbeaten in their last 11 Champions League home games, winning all three so far this season. The Parthenopeans have scored at least three goals in each victory this term – the only Italian team to win four consecutive home games while scoring three or more goals each time are Roma between April and October in 2018.
