Inform your Juventus vs. Napoli prediction

Juventus take on Napoli in a massive game at the top of Serie A. With a four-point gap between the two sides in the race for the Scudetto a Napoli win here would really apply some pressure to the Champions, whilst a Juve victory would all but award them their seventh consecutive Serie A title.

Winning this game will be no easy feat for Napoli. Juventus have lost once at home in Serie A this season and are undefeated in their last 19 league matches.

Napoli have endured a tough recent run of form by their standards, dropping six vital points over their last six fixtures. A surprise equaliser from Crotone against Juve in midweek has reopened a title race many thought was over ahead of this pivotal fixture.

A recurring theme for the Naples side this season has been their over-reliance on their first choice eleven and the reluctance of Mauricio Sarri to rotate his team. The side looked a little fatigued during their recent run of poor form, particularly in attack

There has been some hope offered by their rotational players. Arkadiusz Milik and Amadou Diawara have scored vital goals in recent matches whilst Sarri was able to rest his some of his key players during the midweek victory over Udinese. This may be the freshest lineup he has been able to field in a while.

These are by far the best two teams in Serie A and this should be a closely contested match. The last five league fixtures between the pair have been decided by a single goal. They also possess the best defensive records in the league so this could potentially be a difficult game for attacking players.

Juventus vs. Napoli: Where is the value?

Napoli simply have to score in this game to have any hope of winning the title. With a rested strike force and the likes of Milik and Zielinski available from the bench they should threaten Juve’s stellar defensive record.

They are available at 2.260* to score over one goal which could provide value for those expecting Napoli to go for goals.

Juventus would be very pleased with a draw in this game and are likely to hold what they have should the match remain level into the later stages. As a result, backing the Napoli +0.5 handicap at 1.806* could be a sensible bet considering the increased likelihood of a draw and Napoli’s need to win the game.
