Leicester will play at home against Napoli in the first round of the Europa League group stage. The match will take place on September 16.
In the very first match of the new season, Leicester beat Manchester City in the FA Super Cup. The Foxes took advantage of the fact that the champion played with an experimental squad.
Meanwhile, in the Premier League, Leicester is not impressive yet. Last Saturday, Brendan Rogers’ team lost to Man City at home. “Citizens”, as expected, took revenge.
But far more disappointing was the 1: 4 away defeat to West Ham. Leicester played very poorly in defense, and, by the way, the team constantly faces serious problems in this regard.
In the winning match against Norwich (2: 1), Leicester also failed to convince, as in the game against Wolverhampton (1: 0). Perhaps the situation will change over time, but so far Rogers’ team looks so-so.
Meanwhile, “Napoli” started in the Italian championship with three victories. So far, the invitation of Luciano Spalletti to the post of head coach is fully justified.
Moreover, in the previous round, the Neapolitans won a strong-willed victory over Juventus – 2: 1. To skip first, but still beat the “Old Lady” – it really says that the team is in order.
Before that , Napoli beat Venice and Genoa. It was not very easy in Genoa, the winning goal was scored only in the last minutes.
Napoli have scored six goals in three matches.
