Juventus vs Napoli – Goals galore expected in tense title thriller in Turin! Juventus and Napoli meet in Turin tonight, facing off in a match that will undoubtedly have a major say in the destination of the Serie A title. The Bianconeri are just two points behind their opponents, and a win for either side could end the other’s hopes of clinching the ultimate prize.
The visitors have not won the Scudetto since the days Diego Maradona carried them to the only two championships in their history, but their current form has given them hope of ending that 26-year drought.
Losing coach Rafael Benitez in the summer, Napoli turned to Maurizio Sarri as his replacement, and the 57-year-old has improved the side beyond all expectation. Sitting top of the table, the Partenopei boast the highest number of goals scored (53) and second-fewest conceded (19) under a man with only one year of top-flight experience.
Currently enjoying a club-record eight consecutive victories, they come up against the only side in arguably better form, with Juventus having won 14 in a row themselves. The Bianconeri have scored eight fewer times but have the meanest defence in Italy after allowing just 15 goals in the 24 matches thus far.
Juventus (-.25) 56.8%
Napoli (+.25) 43.2%
