The action in Serie A never stops as the teams are heading towards the second half of the season. Napoli vs Juventus will be a close call between the best teams in Italy as things stand. The visitors would love to reduce the difference in the Serie A standings, but Stadio Diego Armando Maradona is not a friendly field to anyone.
Napoli vs Juventus
Date: Friday, January 13 2023
Venue: Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, Naples
Napoli’s defeat in Milan against Inter was a shocking one. The players performed not so well, leaving all the major actions to Simone Inzaghi’s team. If Lukaku and his teammates were more careful in their finishing, the result would not be so flattering. In their last Serie A fixture, they beat Sampdoria 0-2, but a red card and a penalty made their life so much easier. It remains a mystery how Spalleti will control his squad’s appetite, by making them find momentum once more. The World Cup was not a positive break for every team in the universe, so Kvaratshkelia and his teammates want to prove that it did not negatively affect them .
Napoli recorded 19 undefeated encounters in their last 20 games, managing also to finish the game without losing in their home side on 11 consecutive occasions. Spalleti has no injuries to worry about, with the team being ready to defend its status as one of the European leagues’ favourites.
Juventus are unstoppable right now. Allegri’s team is up to the Serie A standings, currently second, a reality that keeps the title hopes alive. It is not only that this squad won its last 8 league games, but also that it managed to do it without conceding a single goal. Their recent clashes against Cremonese and Udinese were close calls (by scoring late in the game on both occasions), but the team has learned to find all the necessary solutions.
The injury list is wider for the visitors, as Allegri can’t count on Dusan Vlahovic, Paul Pogba, Juan Cuadrado and Leonardo Bonucci. Federico Chiesa is healthy though, being able to help his team retain its crown for the first time since the season 2019/2020.
We expect a close battle with not many risks on both sides. It will be tough to beat Juventus, but Napoli knows how to turn the atmosphere in “Diego Marantona” to their advantage. A draw is a possible scenario also.
