Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win over Real Sociedad in San Sebastian, Napoli will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Rijeka in Croatia on Thursday evening. The Neapolitans quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to AZ Alkmaar, and, no doubt, a win over Rijeka will see them move one step closer to booking their place in the last 32.
Genaro Gattuso’s men have been having their ups and downs in all competitions this season, but they are still seen as hot favourites to beat Rijeka behind closed doors. The Croats do not seem to be competitive at this level, with the team suffering back-to-back defeats to Real Sociedad and AZ Alkmaar, and they are unlikely to make life difficult for the Neapolitans. The good news for the visitors is that Lorenzo Insigne should recover in time to face Rijeka.
