Chipolopolo striker Patson Daka is hoping for better fortunes against Napoli on Thursday in his European debut at his new club Leicester City.

Leicester will host their Italian opponents on September 16 in a UEFA Europa League Group C fixture.

Napoli is not new to Patson after facing them at his former club and Austrian champions RB Salzburg during their 2019/2020 UEFA Champions League Group E campaign.

“It didn’t go our way mostly, so I’m looking forward to a new beginning with Leicester, and hopefully we can get a positive result,” Patson told LCFC.COM.

“Napoli are a very strong team; very physical and they always fight to the end. Every team has a weakness though, and we must make the most of that with our strengths.”

That season, Italains drew 1-1 at home with Salzburg but defeated the Austrians champions 3-2 away in Austria.

Meanwhile, the Napoli game will come four days before Patson’s EPL Chipolopolo reunion with his former RB Salzburg club mate Enock Mwepu who plays for Brighton.

Brighton will host Leicester on September 19.
