Juventus vs Napoli Prediction & Analysis

Juventus recorded a 2-0 win at home the last match-day, against Cagliari. They had won five of their last six fixtures, and they have a 100% winning record at home, barring three losses and a draw.

Napoli’s absentees for this huge clash will include the likes of Victor Osimhen, Hirving Lozano, Kalidou Koulibaly, Mario Rui and more. With the spine of their team missing, expecting Napoli to earn a result at the Allianz Stadium, where Juve have won five league games this term, seems a long shot.

On the other hand, Napoli had lost 0-1 at home the past game week, against Spezia. They had also lost five of their past nine games, and since October, they have managed a single league win on the road.
