Napoli vs. Eintracht Frankfurt Betting Tips: Osimhen to find the net in 7/1 Bet Builder
Napoli take on Eintracht Frankfurt in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie,with the Italian side taking a 2-0 lead into this clash. Here at BettingOdds.com, we’ve picked out two bets for the game that we think represent good value in the betting markets.
Napoli vs Eintracht Frankfurt Odds
Luciano Spalletti’s side are closing in on their first Serie A title in 33 years with a remarkable 18 point lead at the top of the table. The giant gap between themselves and second place allows them to fully focus on this fixture and reach the last-eight of this competition for surprisingly the first time in their history.
Frankfurt will look to draw on their experiences of their Europa League campaign last season where they came behind on several occasions in knockout ties. Ultimately though, Frankfurt face one of the best sides on the continent at the moment and it’s hard to envision them advancing here after a 2-0 loss on home soil two weeks ago.
The bookmakers certainly agree, and have the hosts 1/100 to advance to the quarter-finals and 9/20 to win on the night. The draw can be backed at 7/2, with a win on Wednesday for Frankfurt at 6/1, while 25/1 is on show to qualify.
Napoli vs Eintracht Frankfurt Tips
One can only imagine the scenes in Naples when Napoli get their hands on that Serie A title. Spalletti’s men have lost just twice in the league this campaign and for our first selection on Wednesday we are backing the hosts to win the game for their to be under 3.5 goals scored.
BoyleSports are currently the best priced firm on this selection at 13/10, implying a 43.5% that this bet will land. In all of their last eight victories in all competitions, including in the first leg against Frankfurt, under 3.5 goals have been scored, and with Oliver Glasner’s side determined to make a fight of this, Napoli to win and under 3.5, looks the wise play.
At 7/1 with Unibet, we’ll also be having a small punt on Victor Osimhen to score anytime and Sebastian Rode to be carded. Napoli’s front-man has been firing on all cylinders this season and is the current top scorer in Italy with 19 goals in 22 appearances. Osimhen was on target in the reverse fixture and at odds-against (23/20), he’s a backable price and worthy of making up one half of this Bet Builder.
The second half consists of Eintracht Frankfurt’s Sebastian Rode to be carded. The German midfielder has been booked in all of his last three appearances, with five cautions in just 12 Bundesliga starts in total this season. With a place in the last eight on the line we expect a few big tackles in order to try to keep his side in the game.
