Competition: Champions League
Market: Napoli to win against Athletic Bilbao
Odds: 4/5 @ Bet 365

Serie A side Napoli will face their Spanish counterparts for a place in this season’s Champions League. The Italian outfit finished third in the league last season, while Bilbao impressively finished fourth in La Liga. Napoli, however, are favourites to win with manager Rafael Benitez boasting a strong squad.

The likes of Raul Albiol, Marek Hamsik, Lorenzo Insigne and Gonzalo Higuain are all likely to feature against a Bilbao team with Markel Susaeta and Iker Muniain. Bet 365 side are giving odds of 4/5s for Napoli to get the win in the first leg, as Benitez is looking to challenge for the Champions League this season.

He’s also hoping his side can finally push for the league title too, but it won’t be easy with Juventus and AS Roma as stiff competition. Athletic Bilbao surprised many when they made fourth place in La Liga ahead of Real Sociedad and Valencia. They lost talented midfielder Ander Herrera to Manchester United in the summer, which could see them lacking a bit of creativity.
