Juve come into this game having stumbled against Crotone, and that has helped cut the gap between themselves and Napoli to just four. On paper, it seems like they’re not infallible after all, but they have lost just once at home all season in the league. Meanwhile, Napoli boast the best away record in the division – as they haven’t lost with 12 wins and four draws.

In short, Juve have one of the best home forms, whilst Napoli’s away form is quite fearsome. In addition, the Partenopei have really tightened things up at the back – and not just against bottom-tier sides. In fact, Maurizio Sarri’s men have conceded just once in their last five meetings against teams ranked in the top eight.

Juventus still have the best defense, however, and have only conceded five at Allianz Stadium. They’ve conceded just one goal in their last nine home games – during a 3-1 rout of AC Milan and certainly will be at their very best against Napoli, who have a strong attack themselves.

Juventus vs Napoli: Predictions

With both sides boasting strong defenses, this could be a lower-scoring encounter. Juve have kept a clean sheet in eight of their last nine, whilst Napoli have a clean sheet in six of their last seven away. Both teams are in great form, and both will certainly not want to give anything up. This could play out in the form of a very tense draw.
