Kick Off: 1945, 01/12/2017
Stadium: Stadio San Paolo
TV: BT Sport 2
Napoli’s stunning form in Italy this season has seen them promoted to 9/10 favourites for Serie A title glory and they are fancied to see off Juventus at Stadio San Paolo in Friday night’s mouth-watering match-up.
Maurizio Sarri’s side have dropped just four points in 14 games to be two ahead of Inter Milan at the top of the table and four clear of Juve.
Bookmakers have taken notice and reacted accordingly, but we’re still backing the hosts at Evens in our Napoli vs Juventus betting tips.
A Look At Napoli’s Betting Odds
Napoli have had to grind out results in this competition of late, following up a goalless draw at Chievo and a 2-1 home win over AC Milan by prevailing 1-0 at Udinese.
However, they have been distracted by some crucial Champions League games, performing with great credit in two losses against Manchester City and then dismissing Shakhtar Donetsk 3-0 at this venue.
No lesser judge than Pep Guardiola described Napoli as “perhaps the best side I’ve faced in my career” after City prevailed 4-2 in a scintillating clash in Italy.
He commented: “The level of football for a spectator was just amazing, all I could say was ‘wow’. They completely destroyed us in the first 20 minutes.”
The attacking talent of Marek Hamsik, Lorenzo Insigne, Jose Callejon and Dries Mertens has been a joy to watch and we like 15/2 for a 2-1 home win from the Napoli vs Juventus odds.
A Look At Juventus’ Betting Odds
Juventus have also been in great form going forward this term and took their goal tally to 40 in 14 Serie A matches with Sunday’s 3-0 defeat of Crotone.
However, there have been just a few unaccustomed cracks at the back, with Sampdoria recently beating the Old Lady 3-2 and Lazio having also come out on top in the Italian Super Cup and this competition, scoring five times in the process.
Giorgio Chiellini’s thigh injury is unlikely to help matters going into such a key contest.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side just look vulnerable when faced with pacey opponents who move well on and off the ball, which sums up Napoli to a tee.
