Napoli vs Juventus – huge fixture in Italy’s Serie A
The most important match in Serie A this week takes place on Friday and the result is sure to have a real impact on the exciting title race. The fact that Juventus are not in first place means that there is a fight between three teams, and even Roma, in fourth, should not be ruled out. Juventus have won six Serie A titles in a row but this season they have 34 points from 14 games and are behind both Napoli and Internazionale.
The team from Turin have the league’s best attack this season but they have not been as good in defence, which is unlike them. Last season they allowed just 27 goals in throughout the whole season.
The champions have won five matches in their past six which suggests that they are able to be consistent, but the form of their challengers could be important in seeing which finishes with the trophy in May 2018. In attack Juventus have two of the best players in Italy – Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala have 20 goals between them, but they will have to be in-form to score against Napoli, the league’s best defence with Roma.
Napoli are also very strong in attack, and they have won 12 times scoring 35 goals. They are unbeaten, along with Roma, wo it will be interesting to see if they can keep that winning run going after Friday. Their only non-wins have been against Chievo and Inter Milan. However, they have struggled badly in the Champions League, however, and are currently third place ahead of the final fixture.
Tipbet.com is a website that is worth looking at for a great supply of sports odds. The website have the home Napoli team at 2.10 to win the match. If they can get the win at home against the champions then belief will surely grow that they can finish the 38-game campaign in their current position. Juventus have so much quality that it is a surprise to see them as underdogs (3.60) but this should be a thrilling match.
