These two teams have never faced each other before, so this will be their first direct confrontation.

In 15 games, he suffered the first goal 5 times, but got the comeback in 3.
Acting before their fans, the Napoli will have to look for a good result and try to open a good advantage in the scoreboard, because the return game will be far from their fans. The home team will have to have control of the game throughout the 90 minutes, in order to dictate the pace of the game and get to create their attacking moves and seek to convert them efficiently. The coach of the local team must take on the field a team with a more offensive posture, but without neglecting defensively to avoid being surprised.
The visiting team will make its debut in this edition of the UEFA Europa League with the intention of conquering a positive result, taking advantage of the home factor. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins, 2 draws and 7 losses in away matches; against 8 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses at their stadium. The team comes to this match after a home victory over Augsburg by (2-0). In the last 10 away matches RB Leipzig has won 4, tied 2 and lost 4.
