Betting tips Juventus vs. Napoli

Juventus to show Napoli who's boss

Napoli and Juventus got their new campaigns off to a winning start in very different circumstances last Saturday. Can Ancelotti’s men get an early-season advantage over the Old Lady? Have a read of our preview here:

The good the bad and the ugly for Napoli

There was much said, mostly by yours truly, regarding Napoli’s new centre-back partnership of Kalidou Koulibaly and Kostas Manolas but they really struggled in game week 1 when they travelled to Florence.

Despite picking up the win there is no doubt that Ancelotti would have been concerned with the ease in which his defence was carved open by the Viola. Yes, it is a new partnership but things will need to be better if they are to have a realistic chance of getting anywhere near Juventus at the top of the table.

Going forward, however, they are as sharp as ever with Lorenzo Insigne, Dries Mertens and Jose Callejon all on the scoresheet in an entertaining game. Elif Elmas also made his competitive debut off the bench to give Napoli fans a brief glimpse of their new signing.

In attacking sense there are plenty of positives for the Partenopei but much to work on at the back before they face the supremely talented Juventus.

Juve doing just enough without being at their best

Another season, another title heading to Turin. This is almost a given, like it or not but Juve made hard work of their opening day at Parma. Giorgio Chiellini’s goal was enough to see them past their opponents but Matthijs de Ligt, their £67.5 million summer signing, only made the bench while Aaron Ramsey was not even in the squad.

To give you an idea of what Juve have to offer you only need glance at the quality of their bench to know this side are a cut above the competition. Paulo Dybala, Mario Mandzukic, Danilo, Emre Can, Federico Bernardeschi and De Ligt were all available should the Old Lady have needed to change things up and this is why it is hard to see them not picking up maximum points when they meet Napoli.

The only concern is perhaps they might get complacent or they might struggle to keep all their players happy but this is a hopeful weakness rather than an obvious one.

Another title heading to Turin then.

Juventus v Napoli betting tip

The Old Lady are a well-oiled machine and will be looking to exert their dominance on the league as early as possible again this season. That is why backing Juventus to win at odds of 13/15 should give a decent return here.
