Napoli vs Juventus
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 3 March 2019
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio San Paolo (Naples).
Top two teams in Serie A will drop the curtain on an exciting Matchday in a mouth-watering clash on Sunday evening at Stadio San Paolo. This is probably the only game in the league to see reigning champions and runaway leaders Juventus go into it as slight underdogs according to the bookies.
Even though Bianconeri are as many as 13 points clear at the top of the standings, they are priced up at 3-20 to pick up the victory here. The reasoning can be found in their somewhat slower run of form in recent weeks. Juve have already shown vulnerability of late. They suffered a tough 3-0 loss to Atalanta to get knocked out of Coppa Italia a month ago and they also fell 2-0 to Atletico Madrid in the first leg of the last 16 round in Champions League ten days ago.
Napoli vs Juventus: Head-to-head
Juventus were the more successful side in the most recent head to head history of matches against Partinopei.
Bianconeri won 32, drew 10 and lost 12 of 45 ties with Napoli.
Teams have two wins apiece in last four meetings, though.
Juventus claimed a 3-1 victory when the two outfits battled it out in the first half of the season at Alianz Stadium.
Napoli vs Juventus: Prediction
Napoli will come into the match in much higher spirits. They won four and drew two of last six games across competitions. Carlo Ancelotti’s men demolished Parma 0-4 away at Stadio Ennio Tardini last weekend and there are no doubts they will be highly motivated to cause JUventus’ maide defeat of the season.
The Old Lady are cruising their way to the new Scudetto title. They have an incredible recod of 22 wins and 3 draws in 25 rounds so far in the season. However, they found it tough to produce in the final third recently.
Massimiliano Allegri’s men afield to find the back of the net against Atletico Madrid and they only notched one goal past Bologna last weekend at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.
Napoli have been very tough to break down at home throughout the entire season. They allowed just 7 goals in 13 home matches in this term (10 wins and 3 draws along the way). Furthermore, Napoli did not concede a single goal in five straight league affairs. We all know how Juve’s stern defensive line works which makes the Under 2.5 goals FT the best of betting options at 11.72 odds here.
