Stadium: Juventus Stadium
Juventus were made to work hard for top spot in Serie A by Napoli last season and these teams are again leading the way in Italy this term.
Napoli are going along nicely with five wins from six domestic fixtures, but still trail by three points, as Juve have been perfect so far.
A tight tussle is on the cards in Turin, but we’re backing the Old Lady to win to nil at 8/5 for our initial Juventus vs Napoli prediction.
A Look At Juventus’ Betting Odds
Juventus cranked things up over the summer with their sensational swoop for Cristiano Ronaldo and there does seem to be a fresh impetus behind Massimiliano Allegri’s team.
The Bianconeri had to survive a few scares early on, but have been clinical in beating both Frosinone and Bologna 2-0 over the past week.
It was good to see Paulo Dybala get off the mark for the season on Wednesday night and the Argentina playmaker insists spirits are high at the club.
He told Juve’s official website: “Big players have arrived at the club and we’ll find out if Juventus are now the strongest team.
“There’s a buzz around the place, also because of Cristiano, so long may that continue.
“Against Napoli, we will be going for three more points. Ultimately, these are easy games to prepare for, because they are worth so much.”
It was the same scoreline when Juve prevailed at Valencia in the Champions League, despite the bizarre dismissal of Ronaldo on 29 minutes.
A Look At Napoli’s Betting Odds
Napoli gave themselves a great chance of title glory when prevailing 1-0 here towards the end of April, but let Juve back in by then faltering in their next two fixtures.
The summer departures of manager Maurizio Sarri and midfielder Jorginho to Chelsea shook things up, but Carlo Ancelotti has come in and done well.
They are seeking a fourth straight Serie A victory, with Lorenzo Insigne scoring in wins over Fiorentina, Torino and Parma.
However, a 3-0 defeat at Sampdoria and only drawing 0-0 at Red Star Belgrade in Europe just raises question marks over whether Napoli can keep pace with Juve.
This is the kind of occasion Ronaldo was brought in for and he invariably rises to the challenge, so let’s add 14/1 for him to score first in a 2-0 home win to our Juventus vs Napoli betting tips.
JUVENTUS 2-0 Bologna – Paulo Dybala, Blaise Matuidi
NAPOLI 3-0 Parma – Lorenzo Insigne, Arkadiusz Milik (2)
Head-to-head: Juventus 0-1 Napoli, Napoli 1-0 Juventus, Napoli 3-2 Juventus, Napoli 1-1 Juventus, Juventus 3-1 Napoli, Juventus 2-1 Napoli
