iBet: Teams in very different form
Champions League, Napoli v Villareal
Lay Villareal at 4.5 to one with Betfair
Napoli looked good when drawing at Manchester City in the first round of group matches and they have also got off to a good start in Serie A, with only one defeat in their first four matches. They are not in the same class as Barcelona, but were quietly fancied pre-season to make the top three in the Italian top flight this year and indeed I backed them each way for Serie A at 25-1 (now 6-1). They were very strong at home last season in the league, losing only three times in 19 games and conceding only 15 times in finishing in third place. Tonight they meet Spain’s Villareal, who seem to have gone backwards and have got off to a particularly poor start in the Primera winning only one of their first five games and conceding nine times. They were beaten 2-0 by Bayern Munich in their first group game and have only scored once away from home this season. I think Napoli may have enough to beat them and they are 1.8 (4/5) to do so with Betfair, but Villareal would be delighted to come away with a draw in the form they are in and laying them at 4.5 to one with Betfair seems a sound enough trade.
Man Utd look full of goals and will be at full strength for their game against FC Basel tonight. You can back over 2.5 goals at 1.54 with Betfair.
