Juventus are the current champions in Italy and they are playing in the Champions League next week in a difficult match against Tottenham Hotspur. Therefore they are playing on Friday instead to give them extra time to rest ahead of Fiorentina. If the champions do not lose on Friday then they will overtake the current leaders Napoli as they are just one point behind.

The Turin team have won their last 10 matches and they have not yet allowed a goal past in 2018, so they are one of the strongest teams in Europe at this present time. Napoli have only lost once and that was against the champions in December.

Manager Maurizio Sarri will expect his team to continue their strong domestic form even though they were knocked out of the Champions League and they have instead dropped into the UEFA Europa League. Juventus will certainly push them all the way, but Napoli have the quality to finish at least second.

 

 

Lazio are playing Napoli this weekend and they are also having a very strong 2017/18 season. They are third place now and are also targeting a place in the Champions League as they have been so strong in attack. Ciro Immobile has scored 20 goals this season and has been a major reason for their success. They have a 13-point gap to Juve and 14 to Napoli.

Lazio are also in the Europa League round of 32 and they have lots to play for. For some great Serie A odds, visit the Tipbet.com website to place your bets.
