Frankfurt v Napoli
UEFA Champions League, Round of 16
Deutsche Bank Park, Frankfurt, Germany
22nd February, 01:30 a.m.
The UEFA Champions League action is back, and what a banger of a game to continue the round of 16 as Frankfurt welcomes Napoli in their own backyard.
For many football fans, if there’s a club that’s really the favourite to win it all and is in top-notch form, that’s surely Napoli. The atmosphere, the energy, and the charisma around the city of Naples itself are jaw-dropping. With a massive 15-point lead in Serie A, it’s almost certain that the coveted Scudetto will return to Naples after more than three decades when the late great Diego Armando Maradona last won it for them, but Luciano Spaletti’s side would be looking for even greater ambitions and winning Europe’s biggest prize.
Frankfurt, on the other hand, would be looking to wreak havoc and dent the Italian side’s winning chariot, and the reigning Europa League champions would be eager to gain an advantage over their opponents in the first leg, but the task would be monumental.They would be heavily reliant on their talismanic striker Kolo Muani, who has over 25 goal contributions for the German side this season.
Napoli, on the other hand, would once again be relying on their forward duo of Osimhen and Kvaratskhelia, who are nearing 50 goal contributions this season and would be hoping to cross the tally in tonight’s game itself.
