Napoli – Juventus, Serie A Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR NAPOLI - JUVENTUS
Napoli is likely to throw a lot for the Cup as they do have games in the Champions League, though they don’t have much of a chance against Barcelona, at least at paper. This was confirmed after the Neapolitans took a 1-0 victory over Lazio this week for Coppa Italia and thus will play a semifinal in the tournament, while in Serie A they are very bad. Too bad is even not enough for 8 points in the last 12 games, this is definitely a form of relegation team.
Juventus are starting to play more steadily. There is little more desire in the Bianconeri game. They look much calmer, purposeful and control their matches unlike many of the first half of the season games. All this came after the loss of Lazio, although the Old Lady again lost to the Roman Eagles for the Super Cup later.
Expert view : We have no argument in favor of Napoli. It is also important to comment on the hostile environment that we will see at San Paulo, since Sarri returns there for the first time after leaving the club, and fans loved him a lot and now consider him a traitor. The atmosphere of the stadium, anyway, has recently been toxic due to the tragic results of the team. We will bet on something more interesting, namely – Juve to score in the 2nd half at 1.54. We think that the first half teams will play more closed and there will be a tactical clash, and then the match will open and Juventus will show that they are a better team.
Napoli has scored in the 2nd half in 5 of his last 6 home games in the league
