After falling into Russian territory, the Serie A squad ranks second in Group C with seven points
The Napoli of the Mexican Hirving Lozano lost 2-1 to the Spartak Moscow for the fifth day of the Europa League. The southern Italian team would reach the last date of the Group Stage depending on themselves to qualify for the next knockout round or needing “help” from other results.
After falling into Russian territory, the squad of the A series occupies the second position of Group C with seven points, but the classification in this sector could change after the match between Legia and Leicester City.
A win for Legia or Leicester would give either club the lead of the group, resulting in Napoli drop to third place. It should be noted that a draw between the English and the Poles would allow those led by Luciano Spalletti stay in second position. Currently, Legia it has six points and Leicester five units.
Yes Legia beat the Leicester, Moscow would rank second in the group and Napoli I would have to defeat the Leicester city on the last day. Yes Napoli defeat the team of the Premier League will qualify for the next phase of the contest regardless of the result between Spartak and Legia.
If Napoli equals against Leicester, the pupils of Spalletti they would occupy Legia to defeat the Spartak. If the template of the A series loses to Leicester would be out of a chance to qualify.
Yes Leicester win at Legia, the whole of England would go to first place in Group C with 8 points and Spartak it would be located in the second square. With this scenario, Napoli would advance to the next round with a win over Leicester no matter what happens between Poles and Russians on the last date of the Europa League.
With a draw on the last day against Leicester, Napoli would be eliminated regardless of the result of the Legia and Spartak. In case Poles and Russians match, Spartak would advance along with the Leicester by adding more points than Legia and I would leave the team of the ‘Chucky” for the results in the direct confrontations between both clubs, the first aspect in the tiebreaker criterion of the UEFA.
In this way, the best scenario for the Napoli It would be that Legia and Leicester draw to stay in second position, and a victory by either team would only cause the Italians to reach the last day forced to win.
