Napoli are the current pacesetters in Serie A and they can give their Scudetto hopes a huge boost if they can avoid defeat when they host champions Juventus in a standout fixture on Friday evening.
The Partenopei have come close to ending Juve’s dominance in the past and now they find themselves in the driving seat with a four-point lead going into tomorrow’s showdown.
Juventus have hit a bit of a rough patch in recent weeks with just two wins in their last five games in all competitions and away from home they are without a win in their last two.
However, the Turin club know a loss at the Stadio San Paolo would come as a huge blow to their hopes of claiming a seventh successive league title and they will be up for the fight on Friday.
Napoli have only drawn twice in Serie A and Juve only once, but in these high pressure games where the stakes are so high they can become cagey affairs.
A draw wouldn’t be a bad result for either side and at 49/20 that is my top bet in this proverbial six pointer in Italy. These two teams are hard to separate and both may opt to focus on avoiding a loss rather than pushing for a win, so we could see a very close game when the two meet in Naples.
Given the attacking quality both teams possess the 33/10 on a draw with goals appeals and the 14/1 available for a 2-2 result in the exact score market looks a good option if you’re after a really big price on Friday.
