Napoli vs Juventus Predictions and Betting Tips
The Estadio Diego Armando Maradona is the stage for a titanic clash in the Italian Serie A this Weekend as Napoli and Juventus go head-to-head. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
Both sides took three points off each other in the Italian top-flight last season. However, it is to be noted that the side from Naples has won their last two home games against the Old lady.
Highly-anticipated encounter on the cards
Napoli are one of their five sides that head into matchday three with a 100% record in Serie A. With only a +3 goal difference, however, they reside in 5th position behind the Milan and Rome clubs. Spaletti and his troops kicked off their season With a clean sheet victory at home against Venezia in the opening weekend before making it six points from two games with the aid of an Andre Petagna just four minutes from time away at Genoa. This victory would be their 11th in 13 games and given that the side is unbeaten in 24 of their 26 games, we expect them to be a tough side to get rid of this weekend.
The Old Lady has had a dreadful start to the 2021/2022 football season. Asides from their poor form, they lost Cristiano Ronaldo as the Portuguese ace made a return to Old Trafford during the transfer window. Form wise, we haven't seen the Old Lady at their brilliant best this season as they head into matchday three with just one point from a possible six. Football pundits were of the opinion that the Bianconeri would reclaim their Serie A crown given the return of their serial winner Max Allegri. Taking into account their first two games, that seems like a reach too for a side playing without identity. Nonetheless, the season is still at its infant stage and things could change along the line.
