*These odds are correct at the time of writing but are subject to change*
Napoli and Braga are set to lock horns in round 6 of the UEFA Champions League on 12th December 2023. We preview the game in this post. Read further to find out the details ahead of the big clash.
Napoli vs Braga Predictions and Top Betting Tips
Napoli have opened a 3-point lead in Group C of the ULC above Braga. It means that either side has a chance to progress. But for Braga, they must win this game massively to make it to the playoffs or settle for a Europe League spot. Here are the top free Napoli vs Braga predictions:
Half-time prediction – Napoli to win first-half
In the first Napoli vs Braga prediction, we expect the hosts to win in the first half. A game in Naples will not be easy for Braga. Braga's form has been particularly worrying. The best bet for the visitors is finishing third in Group C of the UEFA Champions League, which will see them drop to the Europa League competition. They lost 1-2 at home when they hosted Napoli in the reverse leg, so while Napoli have been worrying this season, we do not think Walter Mazzarri's men will lose this one easily.
Total team goals prediction – Over 1.5 Napoli goals
In another Napoli vs Braga prediction, our bet backs Napoli to score at least two goals in this game. Even though they average 1.5 goals in home games after two such assignments at Diego Maradona stadium in Naples, defeating Braga 1-2 away from home in the reverse leg set the pace for what could be a massive home win. Bet on Napoli to score at least 2 goals in this important assignment.
Correct score prediction – 3-1 to Napoli
In the final Napoli vs Braga prediction, we expect the game to end with Napoli as the victor. Napoli have only gained a point from two home games in the UCL so far. They have only two wins after five rounds, with the biggest of such victories coming away from home against Braga. A 1-2 away win was good enough but we think this home game could come with an even wider win margin for the Serie A reigning champions. We are, therefore, tipping a 3-1 Napoli win.
Napoli vs Braga -Team new
Napoli won 1-2 away from home in the reverse leg. However, Napoli's current form puts them in a tricky situation even though they have a better chance at qualifying for UCL playoffs. Cajuste, Rui, Olivera, and Zielinski are out with injuries
On the other hand, Braga have no major injury worries, with only Niakate ruled out of this trip as he continues to serve a suspension.
Napoli predicted lineup vs Braga
Meret, Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Natan, Jesus, Lobotka, Anguissa, Elmas, Simeone, Politinao, and Kvaratskhelia (doubtful).
Braga predicted lineup vs Napoli
Matheus, Gomez, Fonte, Borja, Saatci, Carvalho, Moutinho, Djalo, Zalazar, Horta, and Banza
Is Kvaratskhelia fit to feature for Napoli?
Napoli's forward could be out due to a virus infection. Thus, he is doubtful for this game. He has been a key player for the Blues, especially with Victor Osimhen out of form this season.
