Napoli v Victoria Plzen betting tips - Italian class to shine through in Naples

Edinson Cavani is 12/5 to open the scoring on Thursday
Napoli can confirm superiority over Viktoria Plzen with a fairly comfortable win on Thursday evening.

The Europa League is not Napoli's priority this season. That much was evident in the group stage when Walter Mazzarri frequently fielded a reserve team, particularly in the away games, but the Italians still had enough class to come through the section at the expense of PSV Eindhoven.

Mazzarri is unlikely to field the second string on Thursday as he will be aware that a win over Viktoria Plzen, which should be well within reach of the side who currently sit second in Serie A, could enable him to rest players for the return leg in the Czech Republic in a fortnight's time.

That means that Edinson Cavani will start in attack and the Uruguayan will pose a threat that the visitors will never have had to deal with before. Cavani is 12/5 at Boylesports to open the scoring and, generally, when Napoli find the net it is he who is on target.

Napoli are a best price of 8/15 with William Hill to beat Viktoria Plzen on Thursday and that price will prop up many midweek accumulators but those of us placing singles on the match will be looking for slightly larger prices.

Those are available in the handicap market, where Napoli are 11/8 with Betfred to win by two or more goals. That should be perfectly feasible for the home side, who have covered the line in all three of their matches in the San Paolo in 2013. Roma (4-1), Palermo (3-0) and Catania (2-0) are all probably stronger sides that Plzen and so the Czech shouldn't expect to fare any better.
