Napoli vs Juventus Prediction & Betting tips
Napoli – Juve, the top Serie A game, takes place this time in reverse. Unlike in previous years, the SSC Naples is the front runner and thus as a hunted in the duel with series champion Juventus Turin, who is currently in third place with four points behind in the role of the hunter.
After 159 matches so far, Juventus have a clear streak, losing to Napoli 34 times in just 73 wins and 51 draws. In Naples, however, the hosts are slightly out in front with 26 home wins in 29 draws and only 22 Juve successes.
After the SSC Naples had always been in the front in the last few years, but it was never enough for a big hit, the team around captain Marek Hamsik this time seems to be in a position to retract the Scudetto. Twelve wins and two draws are after 14 matchdays an outstanding balance sheet, which is clouded by the fact that in the Champions League three of the first five games was lost and there is only a small chance of the knockout stages. In Serie A, however, Napoli won the first eight games, including the direct competitors Lazio Rom (4-1) and AS Roma (1-0) all before a 0-0 in the top match against Inter Milan meant the first point losses. After that, two wins again, before a 0-0 at Chievo Verona again cost two counters. Most recently Napoli celebrated two victories against AC Milan (2-1) and Udinese Calcio (1-0).
Faouzi Ghoulam and Arkadiusz Milik are still the only failures. Coach Mauricio Sarri is unlikely to rotate, but to muster his best team.
Probable lineup: Reina – Maggio, Chiriches, Koulibaly, Hysaj – Allan, Jorginho, Hamsik – Jose Callejon, Mertens, Insigne
Juventus started the season with a disappointment in the Supercoppa (2: 3 against Lazio Roma), but then in Serie A they won the first six games of all, followed by Atalanta Bergamo (2: 2) and again Lazio ( 1: 2) gave only one point from two games. With Udinese Calcio (6: 2), SPAL Ferrara (4: 1), AC Milan (2: 0) and Benevento Calcio (2: 1), Juve then landed four wins in a row, but then the old lady overtook with a 2: 3 at Sampdoria Genoa already the second defeat of the season. Last weekend, Crotone Calcio (3-0) beat them again. That Juventus this season not quite as constantly at a high level acts as in the past, can also read in the meantime in the Champions League, in which the team of coach Max Allegri after a mixed eight points from the first five games is not yet through.
Wondering if the last failed Juan Cuadrado and Giorgio Chiellini get fit in time. If not, but high-profile followers are ready, especially since there are no other failures to complain.
Probable lineup: Buffon – Lichtsteiner, Barzagli, Benatia, Alex Sandro – Khedira, Marchisio – Douglas Costa, Dybala, Mandzukic – Higuain
