Juventus vs Napoli
Italian Serie A
Date: 23 April 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadium (Turin).

Juventus and Napoli return to their domestic duties to face each other in the mouth-watering Matchday No 31 derby on Sunday evening at Allianz Stadium.

Both outfits have dropped points in the recent Serie A outings due to a congested schedule in the last couple of weeks.

Juventus’ ambitions of chasing the two Milano teams in quest for the top-four finish have seen a massive blow with back-to-back defeats to Lazio and Sassuolo in the previous two rounds.

Massimiliano Allegri’s troops are still seventh in the league table, sitting nine points behind AC Milan in fourth place at the moment.

On a positive note, Juventus won nine, drew one, and lost just one of the previous eleven home fixtures in the league.

They have been very tough to break down throughout the entire season and we fancy their chances of keeping things quiet at the back here against Napoli who seem to have lost the cutting edge in the final third recently.

I Partinopei have failed to find the back of the net in three of the last four games in all competitions. Their offensive struggles continued last weekend with a disappointing goalless draw on the home patch against relegation-threatened Hellas Verona.

Head coach Luciano Spalletti has big problems with the physical condition of his players because he was forced to make two early first-half subs in the mid-week’s Champions League rematch against AC Milan.

The league’s top scorer Victor Osimhen did make return to the starting lineup on Tuesday but it is fair to say his fitness is questionable ahead of this match.

Juventus vs Napoli Head-to-head

  • Juventus will be extra motivated to get revenge for the painful 5-1 defeat at the hands of Napoli in January this year at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
  • I Bianconeri will rely on their fine home record in this matchup as they won 21, drew 5, and lost just 4 of the previous 30 H2H clashes against Napoli in Turin.
  • We’ve seen goals at both ends in each of the previous four head to head outings between the two rivals.

Juventus vs Napoli Prediction

Napoli are sovereign Serie A leaders still but their recent form has been anything but ideal, especially in terms of their attacking output.

Truth is that Juventus have not been much more efficient up front of late either which makes the Under 2.5 goals FT a standout betting option at the 1.66 odds. We still like the home win at the attractive 2.87 odds very much knowing I Bianconeri won nine of the last eleven league games at Allianz Stadium.

Juventus vs Napoli Betting Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.66 (4/6)
