Find out in our Real Madrid v Napoli tips…
Real to win and both teams score
Despite the southern Italian outfit losing prolific striker Gonzalo Higuain last season to Juventus, they have been banging in the goals this term.
Napoli sit third in Serie A, but no club has more strikes than them – 57 from 24 matches.
While, they also impressed in the group stages, topping their pool.
However, you can never back against Real Madrid to win at home and, with them being La Liga table-toppers as well as reigning CL champions, it makes sense to back them at 2/1 with Boylesports to triumph with both teams scoring.
Mertens to score anytime
If ever there was a bet to take, it’s this one.
Dries Mertens has well and truly taken over the mantle since Higuain’s departure, and after Arkadiusz Milik’s knee injury.
The Belgium half-centurion has been a revelation in front of goal since his switch to centre forward, having scored a whopping 13 in his last nine Serie A games – on top of creating five assists during that time.
As well as that, Mertens has four strikes and as many assists in the CL, despite only starting four.
So, take these odds of 11/5 for him to score anytime with Betfred.
Total match goals over 3.5
As mentioned above, Napoli are a team in scoring form, having found the net 33 times in their last 10 games.
While, Real have the second-highest amount of goals in La Liga.
And, with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, as well as Napoli’s in-form quartet of Mertens, Marek Hamsik, Jose Callejon and Lorenzo Insigne fit to feature, it’s set to be a goal-fest.
Odds of 29/20 with BetVictor say there’ll be over 3.5 total match strikes (four or more).
