Shakhtar look overpriced on their trip to Naples

Champions League Group F
Live on BT Sport Extra, 7.45pm Tuesday

If there is to be a big-priced shock in the Champions League it may well come in Naples where the hosts seem to be concentrating most of their efforts on domestic matters.

That makes sense with Napoli odds-on favourites for the Serie A title and manager Maurizio Sarri has not been afraid to shuffle his pack in the Champions League.

That was the case on matchday one when Napoli were turned over by Shakhtar and Sarri is definitely missing defensive rock Kalidou Koulibaly because of a ban.

There has been a suggestion that regular central midfielders Allan and Jorginho could be rotated and that may leave Napoli lacking rhythm.

Shakhtar have looked slick in the final third with a quartet of South American stars and will be prepared to attack judging by the 2-0 defeat at Manchester City when they were excellent in the first half.

Shakhtar
1pt 13-2 Betfred
