With both teams in prolific form, Al Hain-Cole is expecting plenty of goalmouth action when the Partenopei welcome Allegri’s team to the San Paolo
Napoli will be aiming to underline their Scudetto credentials when they welcome Juventus to the Stadio San Paolo for Friday’s heavyweight Serie A clash.
Top of the table after 14 fixtures, Maurizio Sarri’s men are available at 11/10 (2.10) with Betfair Sportsbook to make a massive statement by coming out on top against the team that has won the title in each of the last six consecutive seasons.
Four points adrift of top in third place, the Bianconeri are on offer at 13/5 (3.60) to close the gap on the leaders with an impressive win in Southern Italy.
The sides shared a 1-1 draw when they last met on this ground back in April, and you can get odds of 12/5 (3.40) on them cancelling each other out yet again in this one.
With a resurgent Inter side making up the rest of a top three that is currently only separated by four points, not to mention Roma and Lazio in strong form just behind, this season’s title race looks like being one of the most strongly-contested in recent Serie A history.
Nevertheless, there is no doubt that it is this showdown that brings together the two most likely candidates to lift the trophy in what promises to be a thoroughly gripping encounter.
Having started the season in excellent form to extend their unbeaten streak in the league to 26 matches, the Partenopei are posing a significant threat to the champions’ Scudetto stranglehold.
Although underperforming by their own high standards, Massimiliano Allegri’s team have already scored 40 goals in 14 matches to make them the most prolific side in the division – something they have not achieved in either of the last two campaigns.
With Napoli averaging just under three goals a game at home and Juventus scoring over three per match on the road, odds of 9/10 (1.90) look good on a fittingly entertaining clash providing over 2.5 goals for the seventh encounter in nine between these sides.
