Napoli to Win

⚽ Correct score prediction

Napoli 1-0 Juventus

First Goalscorer

Victor Osimhen

Napoli recaptured some of last season’s form when they roared to a 6-1 triumph at Sassuolo last time out and with their tails up, they could provide a stiff test for a Juventus outfit in the midst of an unconvincing spell.

Napoli were pipped to the points by Juventus in December, though they beat the Old Lady twice in succession before that, while Juve haven’t won in Naples since 2019.

Our free expert picks: Napoli to collect the points?

You can pick your way through more of our free betting tips for the weekend’s action by visiting our dedicated football predictions page.

Napoli are the bookmakers’ expected winners on Sunday and with the hosts looking sharper in attack of late, they could be worth backing to score over 1.5 goals against Juventus at a price of 31/20 (2.55). That selection has a 39.2% chance of hitting the mark.

Hot tip – Napoli to Win

  • Napoli have won each of their last four league meetings with Juventus in Naples.
  • Juventus failed to win four of their last five matches in Serie A.

Other tips

Napoli 1-0 Juventus

  • Just one goal hit the net in each of the teams’ last two encounters.
  • Juventus lost 1-0 in two of their last four Serie A assignments.

Victor Osimhen to Score First

  • Nigerian superstar Victor Osimhen scored a superb hattrick against Sassuolo last weekend.
  • Osimhen opened the scoring against Cagliari in his previous Serie A appearance before that and he looks like a useful first goalscorer option again on Sunday.

Player to watch – Khvicha Kvaratskhelia

Exciting Georgian winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia scored two beautifully taken efforts in Napoli’s 6-1 win at Sassuolo last weekend, so the wide attacker should be brimming with confidence on Sunday.

Kvaratskhelia to shine back on the left wing

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia excelled in his favoured position on the left wing against Sassuolo and having been shifted around this season before the recent managerial change at Napoli, he should continue to shine from his more familiar berth.
