Napoli v FC Porto Preview, Emirates Cup, Sunday 4th August 2013

An exciting game in prospect for sunday afternoon between two very well known sides from the European Stage. Napoli are quickly establishing themselves as a side to be reckoned with having finished runners up in Serie A last season and with a number of new signings over the summer the squad is a lot stronger and confident of doing well during this tournament.

FC Porto won their 27th Primeira Title last season and having also added a number of new players to their squad during the summer they look a lot stronger as well and their main aim this season will obviously be the Champions League which they last won back in the 2003/04 season under José Mourinho, but they will obviously want to get their new season off to the perfect start by winning this tournament.

Napoli Team News:

Rafa Benitez will probably change things round a bit from the side that played against Arsenal on saturday afternoon and with a whole host of new signing’s during the summer we could expect to see the likes of Emanuele Calaiò, Josip Radosevic, Soma Novothny, Gennaro Tutino and goal keeper Rafael all play at least some part of this game in an attempt to impress their new manager.

FC Porto Team News:

Paulo Fonseca has made a number of new signing’s during the summer transfer window, so expect to see Héctor Herrera, Diego Reyes, Juan Quintero and Nabil Ghilas in action during this game along with Turkey International goal keeper Sinan Bolat who signed on a free transfer from Standard Liege.

Napoli v FC Porto Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

A game that could go either way on the day as both clubs have added a number of new players to their squads over the summer and I think it will come down to who want’s it more on the day that will win this game.

FC Porto look the more likely due to their impressive pre-season form which saw them win all five matches and concede just twice in the lead up to this tournament and do look value at their current price available.

However, the safer option could be the goals market as with both squads having some talented individuals we should see at least a couple of goals go in during this one.
