Napoli will play its first game of the New Year against Juventus, as the team travels to Turin after a 2-week winter break, in Serie A 2021-22.
Juventus, which has won Serie A a record 36 times, finds itself in 5th place at the end of the first half of the current season, with 34 points. The team is trailing the leaders, Inter Milan by 12 points, and is all but out of the race for becoming Champions again. Massimiliano Allegri would nevertheless like to pick up the three important points from this game and move closer to securing a top 4 finish.
Spaletti, who took over as Napoli coach at the beginning of the season, had a spectacular start. Napoli won the first 8 games of the season and that too quite convincingly. However, since then, the team has lost some of its consistency and has won just 1 game in the past 5 it has played. At this stage, Napoli is sitting on the third spot, with just a one-point lead over 4th placed Atalanta. A win in this game will help the team further fortify its position in the top 4.
The football betting sites seem to be favoring Juventus quite heavily in this match and that may be a betting opportunity to exploit.
Match prediction and betting tips for Juventus vs Napoli Serie A 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Allianz Stadium, Turin, on the 6th of January, 2022.
Juventus will be missing some of its key players in this clash. These include Captain Giorgio Chiellini, Koni De Winter, Arthur, and Pinsoglio, all of whom have tested positive for COVID during the break. On the positive side, Paulo Dybala, who was suffering from a muscle injury, seems to have recovered and joined the team for training ahead of this crucial game.
The problems are even bigger for Napoli boss Spaletti. Elif Elmas, Victor Osimhen, and Hirving Lozano have tested positive for the virus, and won’t be available. With the AFCON slated to start on 9th January, players like Andre-Frank Zambo, Koulibaly, and Adam Ounas have left to join their national teams. Andrea Petagna, Marui Rui, and Kevin Malcuit will be serving their suspensions for this game, and won’t be available for selection.
Playing with home advantage and against a severely depleted Napoli side, we can expect Juventus to score freely and register a convincing victory.
Bet on a Juventus win.
