Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Napoli will be aiming to retain top position in the standings when they host Rijeka at their Stadio San Paolo. The Neapolitans defeated Rijeka in Croatia thanks to Braut’s own goal, and Genaro Gattuso’s troops are once again seen as hot favourites to beat Simon Rozman’s troops. Even though the likes of Hysaj, Rrahmani, and Osimhen are likely to miss the game for the hosts, we are tempted to put our money on the Serie A outfit.
Rijeka, on the other hand, do not seem to be competitive at this level, with the team suffering a loss in each of their first three group games. David faces Goliath in Naples and anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. In Osimhen’s absence, Andrea Petagna, who joined the club in the summer, is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts.
