UEL: Napoli vs HNK

Napoli vs Rijeka

Department of the Group F Europa League 2020/21 after the first leg is very fierce. Except for Rijeka, who was almost eliminated without a score after 3 matches, the remaining 3 teams (Napoli, AZ Alkmaar and Sociedad) both owned 6 points. The current ranking of the 3 teams is only temporary and promises to fluctuate through each remaining match. As a rule, if the teams are equal then the stats related to the head-to-head head-to-head will be considered first. 

Therefore, it is not possible to say anything because even with the goal difference - extremely good defeat can still be eliminated if you lose on a direct confrontation. With Napoli before entering two "final" matches of the group against two direct competitors AZ 

Although victory is not necessarily a mandatory goal, Napoli of course still needs 3 points to motivate the rest of the Europa League group stage, especially when still playing at home. 

At home, Rijeka lost 1-2 to Napoli. Away from home, Rijeka is currently not in good shape: he has lost the last 2 matches and furthermore, the last 4/6 matches. In terms of ratios (TLCA), Rijeka's performance away from home is even worse: losing the last 8/10 matches. So, even if Napoli did not launch the best force field, the Italian team was still able to win.
