Juventus vs Napoli
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 4 October 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Allianz Stadium, Torino.
Sunday in Serie A is going to be super-exciting this week! After the clash between Lazio and Inter Milan, we can enjoy another high-profile clash between Juventus and Napoli.
The reigning Italian champions have slipped last week against Roma, so they are already two points behind Atalanta, AC Milan, Inter Milan and Napoli. This clash was under a big question mark because Napoli played against Genoa last week.
Later on Genoa reported 11 players positive to covid-19 and their match against Torino got postponed.
Still, Italian Football Association gave a green light for the duel at Allianz Stadium to happen.
Juventus vs Napoli Head-to-head
There was a lot of drama the last time these two teams met in Coppa Italia finals. After a penalty shootout, Napoli were the ones to lift the trophy.
Both of the encounters in Serie A last season were exciting. Napoli were victorious at home 2-1 FT, while seven-goals thriller happened at this stadium. Juventus have won it 4-3 FT.
Six out of the last eight Serie A encounters between these opponents ended with BTTS.
Juventus vs Napoli Prediction
Even though they got only one point, Andrea Pirlo is surely happy with the outcome of that match against AS Roma. Juventus had only 10 players on the pitch for 30 last minutes after Rabiot got sent off.
Cristiano Ronaldo did some of his magic and set the final 2-2 result in 69th minute. Juventus had great season debut at home against Sampdoria 3-0 FT.
There is no doubt it will take some time to settle everything after departures and arrivals during the summer, especially the position covered by Miralem Pjanic who moved to Barcelona.
Unlike the Old Lady, Napoli have maintained win rate at 100% so far. They demolished Genoa at home 6-0 last weekend, while premiere match against Parma on the road ended 2-0 in their favour.
Hirving Lozano and Dries Mertens are going to be the biggest threat for Juve – these two players have already scored four goals total. We don’t think things will go smoothly for hosts here.
Gennaro Gattuso is a great motivator, while his roster remained pretty much the same. Draw or away win double chance seems like a good choice for us.
