Manchester City vs Napoli Preview and Prediction: City to Win 2-1 at 7/1
Manchester City and Napoli will play their third game of the Champions League group stage at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday, 17th October.

Manchester City won their first two group stage games and are currently top of the group with 6 points. They are also top of the Premier League after a fantastic display against Stoke City over the weekend winning 7 – 2.
Napoli lost their first game 2 – 1 to Shakhtar Donetsk but then won the second 3 – 1 against Feyenoord. They are currently top of Serie A having won all eight of the season’s games and have a five-point lead.
