Napoli vs Frankfurt Predictions by Football Ground Guide

UEFA Champions League predictions by Football Ground Guide are based on expert review and in-depth analysis of available team data, information, news and more. Our best free Frankfurt vs Napoli predictions and betting tips are:

Match Result Prediction: Napoli to Win

Our first Napoli vs Frankfurt prediction is a home win. Napoli could have made it 0-3 away from home if not for the missed penalty by Khvicha Kvaratskhelia in the 36th minute. Fortunately, a goal came through for the Blues 4 minutes later through Osimhen who was assisted by Hirving Lozano. With a lead in the first half, Napoli doubled the advantage 5 minutes after the hour-mark and this time they had the advantage of 11 against 10 after Frankfurt's Randa; Kolo Muano. It could have been worse for Frankfurt but with a 0-2 away from home, Napoli should easily win the second leg at home, noting that they completely dominated Frankfurt in the second leg with 80% ball possession.

Anytime Goalscorer Prediction: Victor Osimhen to Score Anytime

The second Napoli vs Frankfurt prediction on from the anytime goalscorer market. Napoli forward, Victor Osimhen is our pick to score anytime in this game when Napol hosts Frankfurt on Wednesday night for the second leg of UCL round 16. Napoli had 10 shorts on target against 1 for Frankfurt in the first leg. Two of the shots on target were Osimhen's and he managed to convert one into a goal. He is the target man alongside Lozano and Kvaratskhelia. Osimhen averages 1.6 shots on target per game. He has scored 11 goals in the last 12 matches across all competitions. Osimhen scored in 3 of their last 6 home games.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-0 to Napoli

The last Napoli vs Frankfurt prediction is a correct score and we expect a 2-0 outcome in favour of Napoli. This will be an exciting game given how Frankfurt will play to recover ground after losing 0-2 at home in the first leg. But we believe will leave nothing to chance and make the most of all the opportunities that will arise in the game. Napoli won 6 of their last 7 games across all competitions. All the wins were clean sheets and the last four wins had a 2-nil scoreline.

Napoli vs Frankfurt UEFA Champions League Round 16 Match Preview

Napoli

Napoli's run in this season's UCL has been quite phenomenal. They won their first 5 UCL group-stage matches, bagging two clean sheets in the process. However, a 2-0 away defeat in England against Liverpool was a minor setback before winning with a similar scoreline in the round 16 first-leg clash with Frankfurt. With such a form, Napoli is likely to cause some trouble when they host Frankfurt in the second leg on Wednesday 15th March 2023. Napoli will miss the service of g. Raspadori is nursing an injury.

Frankfurt

Frankfurt travels to Naples, Italy for the second leg of the Champions League on Wednesday 15th March 2023. It is the second time the German side faces Napoli at this level of club contests after a 0-2 home defeat against the Blues in the first leg. Frankfurt has looked shaky in the contest despite reaching this far. They won 3 and bagged 1 draw in 6 group-stage matches. Their first group-stage game was a home loss but recovered to win the second game against Marseille. Since then Frankfurt has bagged a draw of 0-0 against Tottenham and a 2-1 victory over Marseille in the reverse leg at home. However, a  0-2 home defeat against Napoli in the first leg means they must now win by a bigger margin in this second leg or get dumped out of the competition. On the other hand, Frankfurt will travel without J. Lindstrom, R.K. Muani (suspended) and A. Knauff.
