Napoli vs Juventus: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

Juventus can effectively end any talk of a Serie A title race when they take on Napoli at the Stadio San Paolo on Sunday.

Massimiliano Allegri's men are already 13 points clear of their second-placed hosts after winning 22 and losing none of their 25 league matches so far this season.


Latest odds

However, having won just two of their last 11 league visits to this ground, they are 21/10 (3.10) to extend their lead with a decisive victory.

Unbeaten in 23 home matches in all competitions, the Partenopei are priced at 7/5 (2.40) to close the gap to 10 points by coming out on top against the leaders.

The hosts have been held to a draw in three of their last five league fixtures, and you can get odds of 11/5 (3.20) on them settling for a single point yet again.


Team news

Aside from long-term absentee Raul Albiol, Carlo Ancelotti has the luxury of a fully fit squad to choose from.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been cleared to play after recovering from an ankle injury, although Sami Khedira, Juan Cuadrado and Douglas Costa remain sidelined.

While they have kept a clean sheet in each of their last five league matches, Ancelotti’s side have failed to win three of those fixtures thanks to struggles in the final third.

Although Serie A’s best home defence may stand a better chance than most of shutting out the Bianconeri forward line, their attacking team-mates will surely also struggle for cutting edge versus a visiting backline that has conceded just four times in the previous 10 away league matches.


Predictions

All in all, odds of 17/20 (1.85) offer solid value on no more than one team finding the net for Napoli’s eighth match in nine, as well as Juventus’ ninth game in 11.
