Juventus took the summer to bring in new players, while Napoli’s list of ins and outs made them look like they were very careful not to destabilize the core of the team. That notwithstanding, Carlo Ancelotti has introduced a new system, unlike their opponents who are playing a similar system with a slight variation due to the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Juve have an incredible home record but their visitors can take faith in the fact that they won the corresponding fixture last season. Will the Partenopei be able to claim a victory in this trip to turn the title race on its head? Consider the details
Juventus have scored at least twice in their last seven Serie A games and on the other hand, Napoli have failed to score in two of their last three away trips. This has also been the case in two of their last three meetings making Both Teams to Score No look very promising at odds of 1.80 here.
Fixtures between the two sides have often been unpredictable in recent times, but it is the Old Lady who are enjoying a good run at the moment. Backing a Home Win looks like a good punt here and you can back that at odds of 1.75.
Three of the last four meetings between these two have seen Under 2.5 Goals scored. This being a very close fixture we are likely to see a cautious approach from both teams making Under 2.5 Goals an attractive prospect at odds of 1.85.
Douglas Costa remains both injured and suspended for Juve, and he will be sidelined alongside Sami Khedira and Mattia De Sciglio.
Vlad Chiriches and Amin Younes will miss out for the Partenopei, whilst the rest of the team are fit and ready for selection.
Possible line ups
Juventus: Szczezny, Cuadrado, Bonucci, Chiellini, Sandro,Pjanic, Can, Matuidi, Bernardeschi, Ronaldo, Mandzukic.
Napoli: Ospina, Hysaj, Albiol, Koulibaly, Rui, Callejon, Allan, Ruiz, Zielinski, Insigne, Milik.
