Napoli will be locking horns against Juventus at the Stadio San Paolo on Sunday night and the match will probably be the last opportunity for the home side to mount a title challenge this season.
Napoli Match Betting News
Napoli have recovered very well from a poor start to the season to occupy one of the Champions League positions in the Serie A table but with Juventus performing so well, Partenopei have not been able to mount a challenge for the title.
Currently ten points behind the leaders, Napoli need a minor miracle in order to be able to catch up on Juventus and Maurizio Sarri’s men can start working on their improbable dream this weekend by claiming a victory when the Old Lady pay a visit to the Stadio San Paolo.
Jose Reina and Elseid Hysaj are the only two injury concerns Sarri will have to contend with heading into the encounter on Sunday.
Juventus Match Betting News
Juventus as usual, have been at their brilliant best during the current Serie A campaign and at the moment look odds on favourites to defend the title once again, boasting an eight point lead at the top of the table.
With nine games still remaining, Juventus cannot afford to be complacent as of yet though as they have a number of tough games coming up and with a clash against Napoli up next, Max Allegri will be urging his players not to slip up during such a key point of the season.
Mehdi Benatia, Paulo Dybala, Moise Kean, Mario Mandzukic and Marko Pjaca are the players struggling with various fitness issues ahead of the game.
Napoli vs Juventus Match Prediction
Juventus have managed five victories in their last six encounters against Napoli and it has to be said that the Bianconeri are favourites heading into Sunday’s clash as well.
However, Napoli are in fine form as well and with the fans pumped up due to the return of pantomime villain Gonzalo Higuain, Juventus will have to be at their best in order to be able to claim the three points from the encounter.
