On the upcoming Friday within the 15th round of Serie A the central match of the first half of the Italian championship, in which Napoli will host Juventus Turin at Sao Paolo. Bookmakers are on the future hosts side in this couple, the Neapolitans, but Juve also should not be underestimated, the team is still far from the peak shape, but the men from Turin know how to achieve set goals and one may not doubt, that the Zebras will do everything possible not to lose the upcoming game.
Napoli are having a very difficult period right now, Sarri’s team is going to the Netherlands right after the match against Juve to play with Feyenoord. Napoli’s fate at the tournament may be decided in the match, i.e, will they or will not participate in play-offs, that is why the clash between Napoli and Juve will be held on Friday.
The Turin team is situated on the third position in Serie A tournament table, the team has 34 points in the asset, the gap to the Neapolitans is four points, i.e. if Juventus will be able to win on the upcoming Friday, the handicap between the opponents will be shortened to one point. Within the last five matches Juve lost to Sampa, was stronger than Benevento and Crotone, had a draw with Sporting and Barcelona.
Juventus rarely go in Italy as such clear outsiders, as in the forthcoming game with Napoli. There is a feeling, that the Neapolitans are a bit overestimated in the clash, as Juventus play very decently away, have only one defeat in six Serie A games of the current season.
Prediction for the match: Juventus not to lose
