Our prediction for this Europa League match:
All eyes will be on Stadio San Paolo when Napoli and Real Sociedad face each other in the Group F derby. Both sides are eager to book their place in the Europa League knockout stages, but, as things stand now, there could be only one as AZ Alkmaar are seen as hot favourites to beat AZ Alkmaar in the last group game. The Neapolitans did well to crush ten-man Crotone (4-0) in their last Serie A game, meaning that they are brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Real Sociedad.
La Real dropped two points in a 2-2 draw with Rijeka a week ago, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Napoli’s party at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona. Victor Osimhen remains in the recovery room for the hosts, while Hysaj and Rrahmani return to contention after recovering from coronavirus. Both Nacho Monreal and David Silva were rested in a goalless draw with Alaves at the weekend, but they should start against Napoli.
