ALK Vs NAP Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Napoli strive to seal top spot with a fourth win in a row today.
Ever since being defeated in their Group F opening clash by AZ Alkmaar, Napoli have been impeccable in the Europa League. The side has gone onto win all of its subsequent next three matches in the showpiece tournament with the side scoring five goals in the process while letting in just the one past it.
Its seen the side ease its way into top spot with another win all but assuring them of qualification from the group. With the group still very much wide open with three teams in with a shout of making it to the next round, the Italians will be extremely eager to get the job done today itself.
Where Napoli rediscovered themselves after the last time these two met, AZ Alkmaar on the other hand failed to make the most of that triumph. Failing to fulfil their designs of a win, the club has fallen down into third spot with both of its last three clashes seeing the side go winless.
ALK Vs NAP Fantasy Probable Winner
This will be an intriguing affair, one where the barest of margins come into play to give us the winner. What should favour Napoli is their resource tank when it comes to attack with the side managing to veer to a one goal win.

Helping himself to a cleansheet the last time these two clubs met, Marco Bizot ended up as his side’s match winner on the day. He was in stupendous touch on the day, acting as a true watchdog of his side’s goal as he refused to let anything pass his scrutiny.
With Napoli not being their free scoring self in the tournament, the club has had to turn back to its backline for the consummate success its tasted. And the defence has delivered as well, letting in a measly two goals in four matches.
Its been a wellversed effort from the side, one which sees us opt for the side’s entire backline. All of Giovanni Di Lorenzo, Kalidou Koulibaly, Nikola Maksimovic and Faouzi Ghoulam have played their bit in fortifying the side’s backline.
Scorer of the one goal for Napoli, Diego Demme will be our lone pick from the club for the upcoming affair.
The home side meanwhile will be represented by a trivalent of picks. We begin with Fredrik Midtsjo who has provided the most number of assists at two for the side, a player whose ability to beat defenders and send the ball past the face of the goal has served the side fruitfully.
Jesper Karlsson and Teun Koopmeiners who both have the one goal assist complete the triad of picks from the side.
The one goal for Matteo Politano and the one assist for Dries Mertens see the two form the one-two of picks from the visiting team.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Mertens’s one assist sees him captain our side while Koulibaly is the vice-captain.
Bizot, Koulibaly, Maksimovic, Lorenzo, Ghoulam, Demme, Midtsjo, Karlsson, Teun, Politano, Mertens
