And to make it even more interesting, why not place a couple of bets. If you need some useful betting tips, make sure to check out this Juventus vs. Napoli match preview!
At the moment, Juventus have four points more than Napoli. As there are only five rounds left before the end of the season, winning on Sunday would probably mean that the title will stay in Juve’s hands. But, it’s much easier said than done, as Napoli are a really strong side.
In fact, it seems that only Juventus have better players than Napoli. But the difference is so small that anything can happen in their duel. Still, Juventus need to be considered the favorites in this duel. One of the reasons for that is that the match is played at their stadium.
Juventus’ stadium, the Allianz Stadium, is the place where this team has won 14 out of 16 games so far in Serie A. An even more impressive statistic is that they allowed only 5 goals in those 16 matches. Furthermore, Juve haw won each of their previous seven home matches.
If there’s a team that can beat Juve in Turin (apart from Real Madrid), it’s Napoli. They’ve been playing very well lately despite the fact that they dropped a couple of points in the last couple of weeks. They played 0:0 with AC Milan, which can’t be considered a big failure, but they did fail to beat Sassuolo on the last day of March.
What’s interesting is that both of those games they played away from home. In fact, before March, Napoli were the best away team in the league, with only 1 draw and no defeats. They still have no defeats in away games, which gives their fans a lot of confidence ahead of the trip to Turin.
What must be worrying them is the fact that the last time they beat Juve in an away game was almost six years ago. On the bright side, Napoli haven’t been this powerful in a while. They have a team that seems capable of outscoring most of the opponents.

Juventus vs. Napoli Match Prediction
Both teams are hoping to win points in this game, but Napoli need them more. Actually, without winning this game, Napoli’s title hopes are over. So, you can expect them to attack from the very moment the game starts. But, will they be able to outsmart Juve’s defense? I think they might, at least once. But, then Juve will have to attack. If the game takes this road, we’re guaranteed to see lots of goals.
