Lyngby is struggling at the moment, last 2 games lost – 0:4 with Broendby and 1:0 with Aarhus. The cause of this situation is Squad of the team and missing a lot of important first team players : Hamalainen, Fosgaard, Nielsen, Jakobsen, Warming. Host are highflying right now, they are during series of 8 games without lost.
Napoli have to be full of strength, it want to fight on the same level with Juve. Unfortunately Today they are missing some players in team and coach has headache who is going to play. We could see their shape into last league game lost with Genua 2:1. So, in Napoli team won’t play: Demme, Ghoulam, Hysaj, Koulibaly, Manolas, Mertens. From the other side, from 6 league matches, Juve is still waking winning path.
Manchester have to come back on the winning path after disappointing lost with red lantern Sheffield and draw with Arsenal. Southampton is the right opponent today to switch their approach. Guests have quite big squad problems, also lost with Aston Villa and Arsenal showed their current form. Today they cannot count on Obafemi, Smallbone, Tella, Walcott.
Monaco in form, without lost from 5 games, last match won with Montpellier 2:3, but at the end of that game they released concentration. Today they will meet with struggling Marsylia without won since 4 games. Coach cannot count on Amavi, Kamara, Rongier and he is waiting for newly contracted Milik with hope to change anything into team. I doubt that he is going to change team spirit and shape of whole squad.
Both teams will met 2nd time within a week. In previous cup game after 90’ there was a draw, into Today’s match guests shouldn’t have the same kind of luck. Arsenal treats more seriously league completions than cups. Also Newcastle previous game lost with red lantern – Sheffield Utd, playing second half in 10 players after red card for Fraser. Today probably we also won’t see Jamal Lewis and Federico Fernandez.
To Host team will come back Jamie Vardy and James Maddison what is huge boost offensive line. Also will be back after long-term injures Cengiz Under and Ricardo. Leicester is really solid, without lost from 5 games. Southampton from the other hand into last won game with Liverpool lost whole his power and strength which can be visible in Today’s meeting. After that coach lost couples of important players: Djenepo, Ings – goal scorer with Liverpool, Obafemi, Redmond, Tella, Vestergaard J.
