Competition: Serie A
Market: Juventus win
Odds: 1/1 @ Bet 365
Enjoying a free-scoring run of form, Serie A leaders Juventus will make the trip to the Stadio San Paolo on Sunday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Napoli may have somehow managed to land a 1-0 win over Lazio in the Copa Italia in midweek, it does not cover what has been a woeful run of form for Gli Azzurri. Dramatically falling out of the top half and still struggling to adjust to life under former AC Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso, the Serie A strugglers find themselves in the midst of a three-match losing run. Enduring their worst run in recent memory, there is no doubt that the fans around the Stadio San Paolo will be most concerned by their side’s issues on home soil. Napoli have lost their last four straight Serie A matches in front of their own supporters, including a 3-1 hammering against Inter Milan earlier in the month.
As for the visitors, putting in another dominant display and picking up a 3-1 win away at Roma in the Copa Italia on Wednesday night, Juventus once again hold a four-point buffer at the top of the Serie A standings. Now in pole position to reclaim their domestic crown and with a Champions League knockout showdown on the horizon, one man to keep an eye out for on Sunday will be the red-hot Cristiano Ronaldo. Once again finding the net against Roma in midweek, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner already has 30 goals for club and country this season and has now found the net in his last three matches on the bounce. Picking up a dramatic 4-3 win when the two side’s faced off back in August, the Old Lady should be confident of extending their winning run this weekend.
