Tough Trip For Rafa
Dnipro have beaten Spurs, St Etienne and Ajax at home in the last year or so. Napoli's heavy favouritism has to be questioned given their leaky defence.
The odds are slanted too heavily in favour of the Italians in this Europa League semi-final with Dnipro underrated at best odds of 7/2 (Bet365) to win the second leg.
The Ukrainians defended heroically to secure a 1-1 draw in Napoli last week and they might just finish the job if they re-produce the form which has seen them win their last four European home games without conceding in any of them.
Napoli have looked vulnerable at the back in recent weeks. Rafa Benitez won’t be impressed that his side have conceded 11 times in their last six outings. It’s hard to win frequently if opponents are averaging 1.83 goals per match.
