With only 8 teams left to play their first leg matches, things are getting interesting, and now we get two underdog contenders facing off.
This Tuesday we get Napoli, who is coming strong into this match, against Frankfurt that is trying to pick up the pace they had before the break.
The Champions League is going to keep us on the edge of our seats as the first leg has shown some interesting results and the second half is likely to continue the trend.

Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Eintracht Frankfurt?
Frankfurt’s recent form has been pretty decent to be fair but their last five games have seen them fail to win in 60% of those matches – including in their last game, which saw them suffer a heavy 3-0 defeat.
The German club will aim for a historic knockout stage, especially with a sublime attack led by Kolo Muani.
Glasner’s men finished second in Group D. They were just 1 point behind Tottenham Hotspur, and surprised many as all the odds pointed towards them finishing last. However, that group was crazy until the last minute of the last match, so maybe they were just the second-best fishermen in a revolt river.
Frankfurt has scored in four of their last five games racking up a total of nine goals in that time.
Why Bet on Napoli?
Napoli, meanwhile, is a machine. This team is the best we have seen in the Serie A since the best years of Juventus and they look on track to win the league by a historic margin.
They have won their last four games and are unbeaten in seven winning six of them.
Combine that with the fact they have such a large margin of comfort at the summit of Serie A and they can afford to put their best pieces in this game and rotate in the league.
Napoli has netted in all of their last five games with a total of 12 goals bagged in that period.
With a form like that, this should be an entertaining match.
Final Betting Analysis: Frankfurt vs. Napoli
On paper, Napoli is a much better team, but after their slip with Cremonese a couple of weeks ago, if obvious that they can be vulnerable when overconfidence is present. However, on that occasion, Il Partenopei presented a rotated team and we believe they will go all out in this Champions League match.
Frankfurt is a team that has surprised many in the last couple of seasons. They are irregular indeed and were a disaster at the beginning of the campaign, but well accommodated this team can battle the best in Europe, as the humiliation they gave Barça last season proves it. Nevertheless, we believe Napoli will win, as they have a historic debt with its fans, having never surpassed the round of 16 stages in the UEFA Champions League.
Go for a victory for the visitors this time. If you bet $100 at Napoli in +117, you can win $117 for a total payout of +217.
