Juventus v Napoli Odds: Visitors are marginal favourites for Serie A clash in Turin

Saturday 23rd May, 5.00pm - Juventus v Napoli

There is live action from Serie A on Saturday evening as champions Juventus take on Napoli in Turin. It is not very often that you will find the Bianconeri starting as underdogs at the Juventus Stadium but that is exactly what they are this weekend as the bookmakers are anticipating that Massimo Allegri will rotate his resources with the league title already sewn up.

  • The last 15 meetings between Juventus and Napoli have produced 53 goals
  • Juventus have scored first in 16 of their 18 home league games this season
  • Napoli have won 5 of their last 7 (drawn 1, lost 1) in Serie A, with those 7 games producing 30 goals in total

Juventus are on course for an historic treble as they beat Lazio after extra time in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday night to add to their Serie A triumph and they still have a Champions League final with Barcelona to come. It seems unlikely that Allegri will risk his very best players and he will no doubt ring the changes this weekend, which is why Juventus start the match as slight underdogs at 15/8 with Betfred.

In contrast, Napoli have a bit left to play for and they go into the game as 6/4 favourites, albeit you never know what you're going to get from Rafa Benitez's men, who start the day in fourth place, three points behind Lazio and four behind Roma with two games left to play. Roma and Lazio actually meet in the Rome derby on Monday so Saturday is a prime opportunity for Napoli to put the pressure on them.

Napoli have been in good form in Serie A of late as they have won five of their last seven league outings (drawn one, lost one). All seven of those fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals, producing 30 goals in total, and over 2.5 goals on Saturday looks like a very decent bet at 5/6 with Bet Victor, particularly as Juventus and Napoli are the two highest scorers in the Italian top-flight with 67 goals apiece.

Furthermore, the last 15 meetings between Juventus and Napoli have produced 53 goals in total and Juventus have scored in every home league game this season. In fact, Juve have scored first in 16 of their 18 home games and have led at half-time in 14 of those, with Bet Victor going 28/1 for the double result of a half-time Juventus win and full-time Napoli win.

Napoli do tend to come alive in the second half of games as they have scored 41 of their 67 goals in the final 45 minutes of matches and they are 19/10 to win the second half on Saturday. There is no doubt that they have goals in them but it is hard to back them to win in Turin, particularly as they may have been unsettled by the news that Rafa Benitez is being targeted as the next Real Madrid manager.

Benitez has brought out the best of Manolo Gabbiadini of late though as the Italian international has come to the fore following a tough start to life in Naples. The former Sampdoria striker has scored five goals in his last seven league appearances and he is 11/5 to score at anytime with Betfair.
