          Napoli vs Juventus Prediction & Betting Tips

          Napoli host Juventus in an important game at the top of the table. The visitors are in desperate need of a win to keep their fading title hopes alive.

          Date: 03/03/24

          Kick-off time: 19:45

          Venue: Diego Armando Maradona Stadium

          Juventus take on a Napoli side who have had a disappointing campaign following their league title win last season. The champions currently sit ninth, eight points behind the top five, as they face an extremely tough battle for Champions League qualification next season. A win against Juve would help them keep pace with the sides above them, but a loss would almost certainly end their top-four hopes.

          The Old Lady, in contrast, had been fighting for the title, but recent results have left them 13 points behind leaders Inter Milan. One win in five for Max Allegri’s side has also presented an opportunity for AC Milan to get within touching distance. Victory for the visitors would see them maintain second place and keep the pressure on Inter, but defeat could see third-place AC Milan close their current four-point gap.

          With 19 goals conceded, Juventus have the second-best defence in the league. Napoli have struggled for goals, scoring just 10 in their last six league games. Victor Osimhen has scored 11 goals this season, but has only played in 15 games, so he will be hoping to add to his tally this weekend. Dusan Vlahovic leads the way for Juventus with 15 goals, including three in the last two matches.

          In the last six meetings between these two sides, there has not been much to split them, but Napoli have just edged it with three wins to Juve’s two. Their biggest win was a 5-1 result at the very beginning of 2023, which was a big three points on their way to the Serie A title. Osimhen opened the scoring within 15 minutes, before it was doubled by Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. Angel Di Maria pulled one back before the break, but it was all Napoli in the second half as Amir Rrahmani and Eljif Elmas both got on the scoresheet, either side of Osimhen’s second.

          The reverse fixture earlier this season was a lot closer, as Juventus narrowly won 1-0. Federico Gatti’s strike in the 51st minute proved to be the difference in a tight game.

          Team News

          Napoli

          Cyril Ngonge missed the game against Cagliari through injury so his availability is in question for this weekend. Giovanni Di Lorenzo will return from suspension.

          Juventus

          Moise Kean has been sidelined through injury since the backend of last year, but could make a return against Napoli. Danilo suffered a sprained ankle against Verona which will rule him out for a couple of weeks. Recent news has broken that Paul Pogba has been found guilty of doping and will now face a lengthy four-year ban, potentially signalling the end of the Frenchman's career.

          Napoli

          In their last six games, Napoli have won two, lost one and drawn three. They have found wins and goals hard to come by in recent weeks as their stumbling season continues. Their most recent outing saw them take on Cagliari, in which they tied 1-1. Victor Osimhen broke the deadlock but Cagliari netted a 96th-minute equaliser to snatch a point.

          This followed a return to Champions League action, with a last 16 first leg tie with Barcelona also ending 1-1. Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring for the visitors on the hour mark, but Osimhen equalised 15 minutes later. The draw means that it is all to play for in the second leg at the Nou Camp.

          Napoli picked up another 1-1 draw in the league, this time against Genoa, who are just a few places below them. However, they were fortunate not to leave empty-handed, as Cyril Ngonge scored a 90th-minute leveller to salvage a point for the hosts. A trip to the San Siro ended in defeat against AC Milan, a game in which they enjoyed more possession but conceded the winner to Theo Hernandez in the first half. The first game of this stretch was a victory at home to relegation-battling Verona. The visitors had actually taken the lead late in the second half as they looked to cause an upset. This hope was short-lived, though, as Pawel Dawidowicz cancelled out the opener shortly after. Napoli then snatched maximum points through Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, with three minutes remaining.

          On Wednesday night, Napoli managed a sensational 6-1 win away at Sassuolo; as despite falling behind to a 17th-minute Uros Racic strike, goals from Amir Rrahmani, Victor Osimhen (3) and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia (2) gave Francesco Calzona his first victory in charge of the Naples club.

          Juventus

          In their last five games, Juventus have won one, drawn two and lost two. The Old Lady endured a difficult stretch of form before they beat Frosinone at the weekend. They have struggled for wins as of late, but picked up a massive one as Daniele Rugani scored a 95th-minute goal to snatch all three points. Dusan Vlahovic opened the scoring before the visitors turned it around. The Serbian quickly responded with his second before the late winner.

          This period of fixtures began with a home game against mid-table Empoli, who came to the Allianz Stadium and left with a point. Arkadiusz Milik was sent off early in the first half, which made Juventus’ job more difficult. They did end up taking the lead through Vlahovic, though they were not able to hang on as Tommaso Baldanzi equalised with 20 minutes to go.

          A huge top-of-the-table clash at Inter Milan followed, but they fell further behind the league leaders, who won 1-0 thanks to an own goal from Federico Gatti. The winless streak continued at home to Udinese. Lautaro Giannetti netted the winner midway through the first period. They finally found their shooting boots against Verona, but they could not keep their opponents out as they drew 2-2. Verona took the lead in the opening stages, but this goal was cancelled out by a Vlahovic penalty just before the half-hour mark. The hosts regained the lead shortly after the restart, but Adrien Rabiot responded three minutes later to ensure the points were shared.
