At home the team is unbeaten in the last twenty games and have kept five clean sheets in the last six outings at their own stadium.
Napoli also ended in draw their domestic league game, but they have nothing to worry about in Seria A, as they are all but certain to finish second. Europa League is their only chance of silverware this season and the Partenopei will be eager to deliver European glory to Naples for the first time since the glory days of Maradona. Napoli have scored in each of the last three away games, winning two and drawing the other.
