Napoli vs Juventus prediction comes before the 21st Serie A round matchup. This match will be played on Sunday, January 26, at Stadio San Paolo in Naples, Italy. In this match preview, we will provide you with betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these teams.
Napoli vs Juventus Betting Tips
Napoli haven’t been doing very well this season. They are in 11th place with 24 points, the same as three other teams that are below. Plus, there’s Sassuolo with 2 points fewer. This means that a defeat on Sunday could get Napoli drop a few spots lower.
Their owner De Laurentis thought that the problem lied in their previous manager Carlo Ancelotti, who got sacked two months ago. However, it seems that the decision was not the smartest choice. Since his departure, Napoli seems to have gone from bad to worse.
With Gennaro Gattuso leading the team, Napoli haven’t seen any improvement in their form. He was supposed to instill some discipline in the club, but has apparently failed to do it. The result is that Napoli are in a dreadful form in Serie A.
This team has lost all of their previous four matches in this competition. The worst thing, however, is that this weekend, they are playing the strongest Italian side Juventus. Not only are Juve the best team in Italy but they’re also in fantastic form. This team has won each of their previous five matches in Serie A and thanks to Inter Milan’s failure in recent rounds, Juventus are safe in the top spot. Of course, only if they keep on winning.
This is the reason why they are traveling to Naples with the intention of getting all three points, the same as they did the last time they played Napoli. Actually, Juventus have a pretty good record against the team from Naples, which is another thing that makes the table-leaders strong favorites in Sunday’s game.
Still, all this doesn’t mean Napoli are going to surrender to Juve. Getting a good result against the strongest team in the country would certainly give them something to build on. This is the reason why you can expect each of their 11 players to give their utmost in this game. Unfortunately, the quality is on the side of the away team, which is why you are expected to win in the end.

Napoli Form and Latest News
One of the reasons why Ancelotti got sacked is that he sided with the players who refused to go to quarantine after the defeat to RB Salzburg in the Champions League. The same order came from the club owners a week ago, but this time, the players listened. Perhaps the harsh treatment can help them get out of the poor run of 4 defeats in the previous 5 Serie A games.
Juventus Form and Latest News
Napoli are almost certain to play very defensively in this match, so it’s not going to be easy to find their net. The good news for Juve is that they have some extraordinarily good forwards in the team, most notably Cristiano Ronaldo. The attacker who turns 35 in less than two weeks has been in a sensational form, scoring 7 goals in all competition since the start of the year.
