LEI vs NAP Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Leicester City vs Napoli Europa League Live Score September 17


LEI vs NAP Dream11: Brendan Rodgers and Leicester City have spent the last couple of transfer windows adding strong depth to their squad and providing competition to be able to compete on numerous fronts. The Foxes are likely to give starts to Boubakary Soumare and Patson Daka as well as the potential for Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall to come into the side. They come up against a Napoli side that have a legitimate chance of a Serie A title this season and have started with three wins out of three including a victory over Juventus last weekend. Rodgers and Spalletti have attempted to evolve their teams’ style of play to a more controlled form with under 2.5 goals looking a strong bet for this match involving two strong sides.
