Eintracht Frankfurt became the latest European side to run into the Napoli buzzsaw, now facing the prospect of trailling 2-0 on aggregate and hoping for a miracle on the road in Naples as they resume their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 matchup.
The German side has scored goals in bunches domestically, but was powerless to create chances against the Italian juggernauts three weeks ago, engineering just five shots and utterly dominated in front of their home fans. Now, the task is even greater as they must figure out some way to do what no one else on the continent has managed this season: to beat Napoli by three goals or more.
In fact, Napoli have only lost by multiple goals once all season, their 2-0 defeat on the road at Anfield to conclude UEFA Champions League group stage play in a meaningless match, having already confirmed their place atop the standings.
With a massive lead atop the Serie A standings and the domestic title essentially already secured, there’s little chance Napoli could be caught snoozing in European action, so the task is enormous for Frankfurt. It might just be a little too tall an order.
