At the Neapolitan arena "Stadio San Paolo" will begin the central match of the second round of the Italian Serie A, in which Napoli will battle with Juventus. There is no favorite in the match, the betting line is almost equal. Juventus can arrange a draw in this meeting, such an outcome will keep the existing handicap between the rivals, while the hosts, concentrated on the championship, will give all their strength to the victory.
For southerners, Sunday's match is, in fact, the last chance to somehow get back into the championship race, but even a victory over “zebras” will reduce the gap from Turints by only 10 points. Victoria over “black and white” need “Parthenope” not only from a tournament point of view, but from a psychological one. Before the 26th round Napoli is in the second place, the Ancelotti team almost guaranteed a place in the top 4, because the gap between the Neapolitans and Roma, which is on the fifth line, is 12 points. Also note the good tone of the southerners, in the last two matches Napoli achieved two dry victories over Zurich and Parma.
February turns out to be ambiguous, on the one hand there are confident victories over Sassuolo, Frosinone and Bologna, but in Serie A the “zebras” in their field did not keep three points in the game against Parma, which showed weakness. And in the Champions League they lost to Atletico Madrid at the “Wanda Metropolitan” (0: 2), so this made it much more difficult for them to qualify for 1–4 finals of the championship tournament. In the Italian championship, the Allegri team has full order, after 25 rounds the Turins have 69 points, which is 13 points more than Napoli. Juventus has excellent stats on the road, in 12 matches there are 11 wins with one draw, 25: 7 goal difference.
For Napoli, the upcoming game is much more important than for Juventus. Turins are quite satisfied with a draw, while the southerners only need a victory. I offer in this pair a bet on the hosts through a zero odds.
