Kick-off: 1930, 03/03/2019
Stadium: Stadio San Paolo
Napoli have been strong challengers to Juventus in Serie A for the past few years, but we reckon the gulf in class has widened this season.
The Old Lady have opened up a 13-point gap at the top of the table after going 25 games without defeat in this competition, winning 22 of those matches.
This may be their toughest test to date, but 37/20 for an away victory is tempting enough to be our opening Napoli vs Juventus prediction.
A Look At Napoli’s Betting Odds
Admittedly, Napoli are unbeaten at Stadio San Paolo in Italy’s top flight, posting 10 wins and three draws on home turf, as well as beating Liverpool here in the Champions League.
However, Roma, Chievo and Torino have all picked up a point at this venue, with the most recent of those stalemates coming earlier this month.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side recovered well by beating FC Zurich 2-0 in the Europa League and then romping to a 4-0 success at Parma in Serie A.
But we just feel Napoli have looked below elite level in a number of big games this term, losing to both Milan clubs and in a crazy contest at Anfield.
They were also soundly beaten when going down 3-1 at Juventus back in September, despite taking an early lead through Dries Mertens.
Looking at the Napoli vs Juventus odds, we like 9/2 for the Old Lady to prevail and both teams to score again.
A Look At Juventus’ Betting Odds
Juventus can be forgiven for a patchy performance when winning 1-0 at Bologna last Sunday, with that trip following on from a Champions League loss to Atletico Madrid in Spain.
Even so, second-half substitute Paulo Dybala popped up with a decisive strike in the 67th minute, while Mattia Perin impressed at the other end of the pitch.
Massimiliano Allegri can approach this fixture from a position of strength and Juve have the attacking weapons to hurt Napoli on the break if they push too hard for victory.
Gonzalo Higuain scored the only goal of the game when these teams met here last term and we’re going for another big-match performer to rise to the occasion this time.
Cristiano Ronaldo has claimed 11 of his 21 Bianconeri goals on the road and 15/4 for him to break the deadlock completes our Napoli vs Juventus betting tips.
