LIVESTREAM: Napoli vs Eintracht Frankfurt (UEFA Champions League)
Written by admin

Napoli responded to just their second loss of the Serie A season by comfortably beating Atalanta last time out, increasing their gap at the summit to an almighty 18 points.

A first Scudetto since 1990 now looks a formality, so the Partenopei can turn their attention to reaching the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) for the first time in their history.

A dominant 2-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in the first leg puts Luciano Spalletti’s men firmly in the driver’s seat ahead of the return fixture, as Napoli have lost just one home game by a three-goal margin since 2013.

Spalletti said ‘we want to reach the stars’ in what could be a historic season, and a dominant home record in the UCL could go some way to achieving that, with no side beating them at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in this competition since 2017 (W8, D3).

Frankfurt make one of the most daunting trips in Europe in the midst of a four-game winless run (D2, L2), with the Eagles’ latest setback coming in a 1-1 draw against relegation-threatened Stuttgart.

Coach Oliver Glasner believes his side is ‘capable of extraordinary achievements’ and their positive record against Italian sides on the continental stage certainly suggests they could pull another rabbit out of the hat (W5, D2, L3).

The German outfit saw two of their three group stage victories come on the road, but they’re the lowest scorers still left in the competition (GF: 7), so overturning a two-goal deficit appears unlikely.

Frankfurt are also without an away win since November (D4, L2), meaning Glasner’s men have a huge mountain to climb in Naples.
