Juventus Form & Team News 


Juventus picked up a 1-0 victory away at Parma on the opening weekend of the season. Giorgio Chiellini was on the scoresheet in what was a solid display from the reigning Serie A champions. 

The hosts will be without their new manager Maurizio Sarri for the game as he is currently battling pneumonia. The manager has not yet had the opportunity to imprint his famous style of football on the team yet. 

Ronaldo, Douglas Costa and Gonzalo Higuain led the line for The Old Lady in their opening game and their attacking prowess will no doubt come in useful against Napoli.

Juve are unbeaten in an impressive 21 home league games. Their last defeat came at the hands of Napoli 1-0 at the end of the 2017/18 campaign. They have since gone on to win 17 of their 21 games at The Allianz Stadium. 

Juventus are favourites for he match at odds of 1.95. Napoli will be title contenders again this season but given Juventus’s incredible home form, this is a great value bet.

Napoli Form & Team News 


Napoli put on one of the most exciting games of the opening weekend when they defeated Fiorentina 4-3 away from home. Jose Callejon and Dries Mertens grabbed a goal each with Lorenzo Isigne grabbing an opening day brace. 

Napoli are on a good run of form away from home and Carlo Ancelloti has done some excellent business in the summer. His side put on a thrilling display on the opening day and will no doubt be part of a lively encounter at The Allianz Stadium. 

Dries Mertens should continue to lead the line for Napoli on Saturday afternoon, while Insigne will almost definitely continue to hold his place. Ancelloti is likely to name a largely unchanged side as he faces few injury concerns. 

Napoli are currently priced at 4.20 to win the match. This is excellent value but I believe Juventus will be strong enough to overcome them. A draw is priced at 3.40. 

Juventus vs Napoli Match Analysis - Close battle between title contenders 


Juventus have had a busy summer with the arrival of Maurizio Sarri. Attention in Italy has been on them and Inter Milan but Napoli are deserving of some credit and they promise to be a strong side again this campaign. 

Carlo Ancelloti’s men were the last team to defeat Juventus at the Allianz Stadium. Their team is full of attacking promise and they grabbed four goals on the opening weekend. They also conceded three though and with Ronaldo and Higuain linking well together, Napoli will struggle to keep a clean sheet.

Juventus vs Napoli Betting Tips - Juve to win a lively encounter 


Napoli have seen over 2.5 goals in 11 of their last 12 games in all competitions and given the quality of players that are going to be on display in this match, at odds of 2.50 with bet365, that is an excellent value bet. 

Juventus are on exceptional form at home and they did the double over Napoli last season. At odds of 1.95 with bet365 they are excellent value.

This game, in particular, offers punters a lot of excellent value as it promises to be a lively encounter. 

Verdict

Juventus and Napoli are both thrilling teams to watch and there are plenty of excellent odds available on Saturday. 

My choice for the match is a home win and over 2.5 goals to be scored.
