Napoli's key players could be rested against Man City in the Champions League

Napoli's key players could be rested against Man City in the Champions League

The Belgium midfielder maestro put in another pivotal shift in City's 7-2 hammering of Stoke on Saturday afternoon, providing two assists and a succession of exquisite passes as the hosts ran riot at the Etihad. It's not just in the league where City have shone tho, the sky blues now sit top of Group F and have already dispatched of Shakhtar Donetsk and Feynord without conceding a single goal in either matchup.

Back Man City to win at 3/5, while the draw is 7/2.

Maurizio Sarri's side maintained their 100 per cent start to the Serie A season with a 1-0 win at Roma on Saturday, courtesy of a first-half victor from Lorenzo Insigne.

This is Manchester City's seventh consecutive Champions League participation.

Captain Vincent Kompany remains doubtful with a calf injury and did not train on Monday, while left-back Benjamin Mendy (knee) is a long-term absentee.

If there was one team that could rival City's winning streak, that team would be Napoli.

Free-flowing City are top of Group F after taking six points from their first two matches and have yet to ship a single goal.

In form Napoli are priced at 9/2 for the away win. On matchday one, Napoli struggled away at Shakhtar and came away with a 2-1 loss, the only time they have tasted defeat so far this season.

Manchester City and Napoli are the two most prolific teams in Europe's five major leagues, making today's Champions League encounter at the Etihad Stadium a genuinely mouth-watering prospect.

"Saturday was the best performance we have produced".

Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis says the Serie A leaders should rest some of their key players for Tuesday's Champions League clash. Manchester City to win and both teams to score seems like a safe bet.
