Soccer Predictions For Juventus – Napoli
It’s always great when we have an amazing Italian derby which is approaching. On Sunday the Serie A champion Juventus will face Napoli at the Allianz Stadium in Turin. We are going to preview it in our soccer predictions for this week.
In the previous round Juventus lost points for a first time this season. The Bianconeri paid a visit to Roma in the capital and only got a point after a 2-2 draw. Cristiano Ronaldo scored both goals for the Old Lady with Danilo providing one of the assists. The new manager Andrea Pirlo used a typical 4-4-2 formation, but it didn’t produce the result he was hoping for.
The French midfielder Adrien Rabiot will miss the next match. The former PSG star was sent off during the game against Roma. Meanwhile the new signing Alvaro Morata started in attack, but he was replaced by Douglas Costa in the second half. Paulo Dybala remained on the bench for the champions.
Napoli are flawless since the beginning of the season and they are leading the standings – two wins from two matches played so far. We saw at the end of the previous campaign that Napoli are improving under Gennaro Gattuso. It seems his work is giving fruits now.
In the previous round Napoli made a true show for their supporters who were watching on TV. The Azzurri faced Genoa and humilated their opponent with a 6-0 win at the San Paolo. Hirving Lozano scored a brace and showed how good he could be while Zielinski, Mertens, Elmas and Politano scored as well.
Just like always we expect a great football between Juventus and Napoli on Sunday. The visitors are leading the Serie A standings at the moment and they would like to keep this position. As for Juventus, for them this is another serious challenge after the visit to Roma.
