Benfica and Napoli share 8 points in group B, having 1 point of advantage over the third-placed Besiktas. If Besiktas win their game, then Benfica will need all 3 points to go through whereas a draw would be enough for Napoli reach the knock-out stages of Champions League. Hosts have some important absences as Jonas, Eliseu, Horta and Grimaldo are unavailable. A few days ago Benfica suffered from 1:2 league defeat to Maritimo, whereas Napoli comfortably outplayed Inter (3:0). Apart from the long-term injury Milik, visitors should have full team available. Earlier this season Napoli got a comfortable victory over Benfica (4:2), the Italian side were clearly the better team. Two weeks ago Benfica had a golden opportunity to book their place in Champions League play-offs as they were leading 3:0 at half-time against Besiktas, but the Portuguese outfit failed to win that clash. It could've had a negative impact on their morale. In my opinion Napoli are currently a better side than Benfica and it seems that visitors are favourites of this game.
Benfica: Ederson; Nélson Semedo, Luisão, Nilsson Lindelöf, Almeida; Salvio, Fejsa, Pizzi, Cervi; Guedes, Mitroglou
Napoli: Reina; Hysaj, Koulibaly, Albiol, Ghoulam; Allan, Diawara, Hamšík; Callejón, Mertens, Insigne
