Juventus vs Napoli
Italy Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 7 April 2021
Kick-Off at 17.45 UK
Venue: Allianz Stadium, Turin.
Juventus will host Napoli in one of two mid-week Serie A games. The match should have been played back on Matchday No 3 but was postponed as both teams will finally catch up with the rest of the division in terms of games played this season. The clash has a massive importance for both sides who currently sit lock on points right on the brink of the top-four finish-
I Bianconeri not only gave up the title contention with the weekend’s disappointing 2-2 draw to Torino in Derby della Mole, but they also significantly complicated their position in the battle for the top-four finish and a place in UWFA Champions League next season. Andrea Pirlo’s men have thus claimed just one point from the last two league outings against bottom-half sides and relegation strugglers Benevento and Torino. Can they bounce back in this highly important tie against Partinopei?
Juventus vs Napoli Head-to-head
Juventus still have a positive head to head record with I Partinopei even though they managed to beat Napoli just once in the last four meetings.
The Partinopei won two, drew one (Coppa Italia final – Napoli won on penalties after a goalless draw in regular time), and lost one of the last four encounters with I Bianconeri.
La Vecchia Signora will rely on an outstanding home record against Napoli as Juventus won 19, drew 4, and lost just 4 of the last 27 home matches against I Partinopei.
Juventus vs Napoli Prediction
Napoli will enter the game in much higher spirits. They celebrated the fourth straight league victory on Saturday afternoon, despite conceding three goals at home to Crotone. Giovanni Di Lorenzo eventually scored the late winner 18 minutes from time to make it 4-3 at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
Gennaro Gattuso’s men have now scored three or more goals in three of the last five league outings. They should be able to find the target here against Juventus who have just shipped two goals to the likes of Torino at the weekend.
Pirlo’s troops enter this tie as favourites according to the bookmakers, but they have failed to find the back of the net in five consecutive matches. Instead of backing the home win, we see a great value in the 2.00 odds offered for the Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score bet.
As for the outcome, we see the draw as the most likable of three and we will thus shoot for it at the sky-high 3.60 odds.
