Juventus vs Napoli
Italy Super Cup
Date: Wednesday, 20 January 2021
Kick-Off at 20.00 UK
Venue: MAPEI Stadium, Reggio Emilia.
Italian Super Cup is on this Wednesday where traditionally Serie A champions (Juventus) face Coppa Italia winners from last season (Napoli). The timing is awful for The Old Lady, as they just returned from an exhausting trip to Milano where Inter celebrated big 2-0 victory. Are days numbered for Andrea Pirlo? Things haven’t been looking good for Juve in the last couple of months.
We wouldn’t be surprised to see him sacked if this match doesn’t end in their favour. On the other hand, Napoli’s fans couldn’t have imagined better way to prepare for this duel. Squad demolished Fiorentina at home 6-0 during the weekend Serie A action. Juventus are still labelled as favorites though at 2.37 odds to win the match.
Juventus vs Napoli Head-to-head
Napoli have won Coppa Italia against Juventus last season. Result in regular and extra time was 0-0 so the winner was decided after a penalty shootout.
The rivalry between them is huge. The most recent Serie A encounter was played in Naples and Napoli won 2-1.
Four out of the last five meetings have ended with both teams scoring and Over 2.5 goals.
Juventus vs Napoli Prediction
As you probably know, there was a lot of drama involved in match between these two rivals which was supposed to be played in late 2020. Teams have not given up on title hopes, even though AC Milan have six points advantage over Napoli, seven ahead of Juve.
Gennaro Gattuso was thrilled with the most recent performance on Sunday. Fiorentina has left Diego Armando Maradona Stadium with six goals inside their net. Insigne had one hell of a game, scoring two goals and providing two assists. Can he lead the squad in the Super Cup as well?
Even though big majority of recent h2h ended with high number of goals, we are expecting to see different scenario this time. There is no doubt that both Pirlo and Gattuso will be super cautious in the opening stages.
As mentioned above, Juventus once again demonstrated poor form and team chemistry against Inter. Primary tip will be Under 2.5 goals, followed by Napoli to lift the trophy.
