Soccer predictions this week for Juventus – Napoli
Juventus will go head to head with Napoli in a postponed match from the third round of the Serie A. These two teams will meet at the Allianz Stadium in Turin on Wednesday. Let’s preview it with our soccer predictions for this week.
It seems that Juventus will say goodbye to their hegemony in the Italian Serie A. After 28 games played, Juve are 4th in the standings. They are 12 points behind the leader Inter Milan, so as you can see their chances of defending their Serie A crown are very slim. Most likely the manager Andrea Pirlo won’t continue next season given the team’s results. We will remind you that the Bianconeri are already out of the Champions League as well.
On Saturday Juve made another wrong step in the league. The Old Lady faced Torino in the local derby, but these two teams shared the points with a 2-2 draw. Federico Chiesa and Cristiano Ronaldo scored for the champions, but these two goals were not enough to take the win.
Most likely Pirlo will make some changes in his starting eleven against Napoli. Players like Filippo Bernardeschi, Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot could feature from the start. They all entered the pitch from the bench against Torino.
Napoli have the chance to overtake Juventus and kick them out of the Top 4 if they win on Wednesday. Right now the Azzurri are 5th in the standings with 56 points which puts them on par with the Bianconeri. They are aware that a win on Wednesday would allow them to return in the Top 4. That’s a huge motivation, no doubt.
In their last game Gennaro Gattuso’s boys recorded a 4th consecutive win in the league. Napoli faced Crotone and prevailed for a 4-3 win. Insigne, Osimhen, Mertens and Di Lorenzo scored for the Azzurri.
That’s the soccer predictions for this week for the Serie A clash between Juventus and Napoli in a postponed game from the third round of the competition. This is a direct fight for the Top 4, so it’s going to be really exciting.
