For Maurizio Sarri's Napoli this is a fundamental game. After having established itself as one of Europe's most beautiful and entertaining teams thanks to the way it plays, this year it is expected to reach its first major achievements, starting with the Champions League.


A victory at the start followed by qualification would witness the team's growth and could give them more confidence in their means for the continuation of the season. In addition, with the access to the Champions League group stage, the club could receive a base share of 12.7 million euros from UEFA and then increase.

The rise of Nice in the French league after years of mediocre results began two years ago, but in the past season the team has played one of its best ever vintages: trained by Swiss Lucien Favre managed to finish Ligue 1 Third place having been in the lead for months and this way he qualified for the first time in his history at the preliminaries of the Champions League, where in the third round he eliminated the Ajax.
