Napoli vs Juventus
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 13 February 2021
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, Naples.
The well congested schedule will continue for both Napoli and Juventus who are about to lock horns in the 22nd round of Serie A on Saturday evening at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
Both sides have been in action in mid-week, playing their Coppa Italia semi-final reverse fixtures against Inter and Atalanta respectively. They will both then return to European duties next week.
The Bianconeri take on Port in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League last 16 round clash against Porto, while I Partinopei take on Granada in the last 32 round of Europa League on Thursday.
Despite the congested schedule, we don’t expect too many rotations from the managers here. Both Gennaro Gattuso and Andrea Pirlo will need their key players as this is a very important match that could play a massive impact on the Serie A standings at the end of the season.
Napoli hold the 6th position at the moment, but are only five points short of the third-placed Juventus who would suffer a massive blow to their title-defence ambitions with a failure here at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
Napoli vs Juventus Head-to-head
- Juventus lead the head to head tie by 12 wins going into the 51st clash against I Partinopei.
- The two sides played each other just less than a month ago when I Bianconeri took a 2-0 victory in the Super Cup clash in Bergamo.
- Napoli defeated Juventus in the last season’s Coppa Italia final on penalties (0-0 in the regular time).
Napoli vs Juventus Prediction
Napoli are capable of beating anyone on their day but they’ve already had way too many unexpected slip-ups this term. One such happened last weekend when Gattuso’s men fell 2-1 away at bottom-half Genoa.
The Partinopei have thus won just two of the last six games in all competitions. It is not the kind of form you want to have going head to head with the reigning champions.
Juventus won six of the last seven league matches by at least two goals difference. They will travel to Naples on the back of three consecutive 2-0 wins in the league. They have also beaten Napoli 2-0 in the Super Cup earlier this year.
Pirlo’s troops will also have an additional day of rest after the Coppa Italia semi-final. The away win is the way to go at the 2.15 odds. Braver tipsters can try with Juventus to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 3.00.
