Juventus vs Napoli Betting Tip and Predictions. In the big Italian derby this weekend in Serie A, Juventus take on Napoli. Read below betting preview, useful info and predictions for the match between Juventus vs Napoli.
Napoli stand at the top of the table and they are one of the main candidates for the title this season. Juventus dominate in Italian football for years and this year they finally have a very serious concurrent for the title. Visitors won the title in Serie A last time in the season 1989–90 and they are now closer than ever to repeat that success. Even Diego Maradona has promised to arrive by helicopter if Napoli fulfill their promise of winning the league title. Napoli lost only two matches this season. Visitors have the best attack in league, scored 53 goals in 24 matches (average more than two goals per match) and in the absence of Chiellini they see their chance. Juventus have the best defensive line in Serie A and this is the real test for Napoli’s attackers, Higuain and Insigne, to show are they ready for the big matches.
