Champions League betting preview: Napoli v Chelsea
Chelsea face Napoli tonight in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 encounter.
The Blues qualified for the knockout stages of the competition after topping Group E ahead of Bayer Leverkusen, while the Partenopei came through as runners up in Group A behind Bayern Munich.
Chelsea will make a late decision on the fitness of John Terry as the defender continues his recovery from a knee injury, while Ashley Cole should be fit to start following a calf problem. Didier Drogba could start up front in place of Fernando Torres.
Napoli manager Walter Mazzarri is serving a touchline ban, meaning assistant Nicolo Frustalupi will stand in.

Napoli striker Edinson Cavani is 4/1 favourite to score the first goal, followed by fellow forward Ezequiel Lavezzi at 11/2. Chelsea trio Drogba, Torres and Daniel Sturridge are all priced at 13/2.
Chelsea are 8/13 favourites to progress over the two legs, with Napoli available at 5/4.
