The Nice vs. Napoli match will be played on Tuesday, August 22, at the Allianz Riviera, Nice. This is the second leg of Champions League playoff phase. In the first leg, Napoli celebrated a 2:0 victory at home.
Apart from the match they played against each other a week ago, these teams played a friendly game in 2015. Nice won that match by 3:2.

Nice eliminated Ajax in the third Champions League qualifying round, but they started the season in Ligue 1 with two defeats, so we can't say they are in a great form currently. Their primary goal in Napoli was to score an away goal, but when we look back at the highlights from that match, Nice should be happy they lost only by 2:0. They will have to score at least one goal in the second leg to make the game enjoyable.

Napoli started their road in Champions League qualifiers from the playoff round, and it seems they will easily qualify for the group phase. In their first Serie A game this season they defeated Hellas in Verona by 3:1 and it seems they will have another successful season. Although they recorded a 2:0 victory in the first leg, they should be careful in the rematch.

Nice will have to be aggressive and try to score as soon as possible, while Napoli will surely be more defensive minded than in the first leg - a goalless draw works fine for them. We think that we will see under 2.5 goals in the upcoming game.
