      Juventus vs Napoli Predictions

      Could it get any better than this? The Serie A’s red hot teams and top two go head-to-head in a match-up that will be crucial. It is hardly a winner takes all kind of game with just two points separating the clubs. However, it could be a huge game changer for top of the table Napoli, while a win for Juventus’ would move them to the top of the table for the first time this season.

      Juventus are aiming for a 15th successive victory, a win on Saturday would them needing just two more wins to tie the Serie A wining run record. They’ve got the best defensive record in Serie A and they have proven completely unstoppable in terms of their attacking play over their recent run.

      Napoli are the only team that has shown any sort of resistance against Juventus. The rest of the Serie A table has melted away, but Napoli have put together a winning streak of eight games themselves. They have potent attacking qualities of their own, but Napoli’s grit and defensive abilities shouldn’t be underestimated either.


      Napoli won the earlier game this season 2-1, though Juventus were a very different team then. Last season, the defending champions won both games against the Naples-based club, both by a 3-1 margin.

      Giorgio Chiellini probably won’t play for Juventus, which increases the likelihood of a three-man defensive unit being utilised. Sami Khedeira is also out, while Patrice Evra remains a question mark. Napoli enter the game just about at full health.

      Reason for Betting Tips

      As well as Napoli have played, there’s a difference between their style of winning and that of Juventus. The defending champions dominated last season and if possible, they are actually playing even better football this season. It’s an amazing level of dominance and we just can’t see it being halted with this game being played in Turin. Maurizio Sarri has tightened up Napoli’s once famously porous defence, and even a draw would probably be a good result. Juventus are the better team and they will find a way to win this game to keep their streak alive.
