Napoli

Napoli’s current performance has been really low considering that they finished second in Serie A in three of the last four seasons. Since 2009, they have never finished a campaign in lower than the sixth position in Serie A.

Napoli has been unfortunate in the injury sector with a handful of injury issues. Koulibaly, Allan, Kevin Malcuit, Faouzi Ghoulam, and Dries Mertens are all on the sidelines due to their respective injury issues.

Nikola Maksimovic could return after recovering from a hamstring problem to feature in the starting lineup.

In the last game against Lazio Fabian Ruiz and Sebastiano Luperto had to sit out but they might return to start against Juventus in the home fixture.

Predictions

Juventus has been on top form in the current season with 16 wins, 1 loss, and 3 draws.

Juventus’s performance in the last 5 games has been phenomenal with a 100% success ratio. This speaks of the spirit of the Serie A leaders.

Considering the performance in recent matches, it is safe to predict that Juventus can be deemed as the favorite for Sunday’s fixture.

Napoli’s performance in this season has been below average, to say the least. The expectations from a team of such stature are huge, but Napoli has been utterly disappointing.

Score: Juventus (3-0) Napoli
