Napoli v Juventus: Tips, Predictions and Odds

Sunday night’s Serie A action sees second-placed Juventus visit defending champions Napoli.

While there are 17 points and six places between the two sides, there’s still plenty of tension around the clash.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis went for Juve this week, with the Old Lady on course to represent Italy at next summer’s Club World Cup despite a ban from UEFA competition this term.

Even when these two sides aren’t directly competing, the animosity between them will amp up the atmosphere in Naples.

Napoli v Juventus betting tips and predictions

Both teams to score - 19/20

Napoli have endured a tough season, but new manager Francesco Calzona has restored some of the swagger of last season’s Scudetto winners.

Napoli’s third coach of the campaign has gone unbeaten through his first three games, drawing 1-1 with both Barcelona and Cagliari before a 6-1 hammering of Sassuolo.

Gli Azzurri still can’t quite get things right defensively, having gone six games without a clean sheet. They’ve conceded in eight of their 10 home meetings with the sides above them in Serie A this term, while their new coach seems to be prioritising a turnaround in attack.

Napoli would struggle to contain this Juve side at the best of times anyway, with the visitors scoring in 88% of their Serie A matches this season. The visitors are making more of an attacking push, as seen in recent weeks. The Old Lady have drawn 2-2 at Verona and beaten Frosinone 3-2 across their last two outings.

More goals should be on the cards on Sunday night, with Napoli keeping one clean sheet across their last 11 home league games. The hosts have seen BTTS land in eight of those matches and with Calzona getting them pushing forward with an exciting front three in an adventurous 4-3-3 system, more goals should follow.

Victor Osimhen to score anytime - 6/4

A big part of Calzona’s turnaround has come from Victor Osimhen’s improved form. The Nigerian forward is clearly their best player and he was vital in firing the Partenopei to the title last season.

His scoring record has slumped this term, but the new boss has quickly set about breathing new life into the forward. Since Osimhen’s return from the Africa Cup of Nations, he’s netted in every game under Calzona’s watch. That includes a hat-trick in the dismantling of Sassuolo.

The forward has five goals across his last three games and his scoring record in Naples has been good this term. He’s found the net six times across nine home appearances in Serie A and the Champions League. 

With Juventus coming off the back of a couple of poor displays, Osimhen can trouble them this weekend.

Napoli to win 2-1 - 9/1

With confidence flowing in this Napoli side once again, they can trouble a Juventus side who have had a tough week. The visitors have won once across their last five and any hopes they had of challenging Inter for the Serie A title appear to be gone. 

Juve have plenty of off-field issues distracting them this week too and a visit to a Napoli side who are on the up isn’t ideal. While the visitors have one of the stronger away records in Serie A this term, they’ve only played four top-half teams to date.

Napoli’s victories this season have tended to come against the league’s strugglers, but they’ve strung together a run of five games unbeaten at home and the fact they recently held Barcelona to a draw suggests they can trouble a Juventus side who have little to push for in the run-in.

Napoli have secured three 2-1 wins in their last five home matches, while they’ve won each of their last four home meetings with Juventus in the league. Of those wins, three came by a single goal with two of them finishing 2-1. Back a repeat of that scoreline this weekend, as Calzona’s turnaround continues in Naples.
