The most interesting match which is in the programme this weekend is definitely the match-up between Italian arch rivals Juventus and Napoli. The two teams have been fighting for the Serie A title for decades now, but in the last couple of years their fight has been the most pronounced, with Napoli finishing runners-up to Juventus for two consecutive years.
Impressive at Home
Juventus have been really impressive in their head to head encounters against Napoli when they were played in Turin. From the last 8 home matches which Juventus played in front of their fans they were victorious in 7.
The only defeat came in April 2018 when Sarri took away all 3 points back to Naples and pushed Juventus’ title bid all the way down the wire. Sarri is now in charge of Juventus and considering how much he knows about his previous employers, these impressive home stats might continue to pile up in Juventus’ favour.
Napoli – Not Without a Chance
However, if there is one thing that Maurizio Sarri also knows, it is the fact that this Napoli team is much stronger than the one he had at his disposal two seasons ago.
De Laurentiis has managed to recruit some top quality signings during the transfer window and their newest signing Hirving Lozano is already considered as one of those players which can set Serie A alight this season.
The biggest problem for Napoli consolidating the defence which conceded three goals against Firentina last week. This is why Ancelotti might go for a more defensive approach at the beginning of the match.
There Will Be Goals
However, when you factor in the attacking talent that both of these teams possess, you will realize that the match has no chance of being without goals. Once the first goal is scored the flood gates will open and punters can expect a real goal extravaganza in Turin.
Backing both teams to score should definitely be considered as an option and at enticing odds of 1.91 it certainly is something to mull over. Another good bet here is backing the match to finish with over 2.5 goals at odds of 2.05, and with over 3.5 goals at odds of 3.50.
