ITALIAN football fanatic Marco Di Cosmo (@Scioltz) shares his best bets from Sunday’s crucial Serie A encounter between Napoli and Juventus.
Napoli v Juventus | Sunday 19.45 | BT Sport 1
It’s a Super Sunday weekend in Italy and there’s no doubt that this is absolutely huge. I adore Napoli when they’re hosting big teams.
They’ve proven over the years that they’re a match for any side on home soil – Dortmund, Arsenal, Juventus, Roma, Milan and Inter were all seen off last season and in December they held Juve 2-2 in the Super Coppa before winning on penalties.
Juve’s record at the San Paolo is terrible with their last win coming in September 2000. The Bianconeri are not the best of shapes with only one victory in their last five and this is obviously not the best moment to travel to Naples.
Despite Max Allegri’s unspectacular football, this should be an open match and both teams should find the net. Napoli’s front line are amongst the best in Europe and look even better with the addition of Manolo Gabbiadini, who has already scored against Juve last month, when he was playing for Sampdoria.
The bookmakers seem incredibly unaware of Napoli strength and I think they underestimate the Partenopei in their own back yar. For this reason, the Double Chance for Napoli is the safest bet of the week, and looks a banker at 4/7 with Coral.
But if you are looking for an odds-against bet the Napoli Draw No Bet is a fantastic price at 23/20 with BetVictor. But I’m also going to be brave and take the 4/1 from Betfair on a Napoli win with Over 2.5 Goals.
