The rivalry between Napoli and Juventus has only gotten worse over the years. In recent history, Juventus ousted Napoli from the title race multiple times while also stealing their star player Gonzalo Higuain. Although one might say that the past remains in the past, there is no such thing as water under the bridge when it comes to Serie A rivalries like this one.

Napoli will host Juventus this Friday in what is dubbed the potential game of the season. Napoli holds a seven-point cushion on Juventus, but that deficit can be reduced to just four points if the Bianconeri manage to deliver Napoli’s first home blow of the season.

Last week was a spotty one for Luciano Spalletti’s men. After having suffered their first season loss at San Siro against Inter, Napoli went on to bag three points against relegation-bound Sampdoria. With two consecutive trips away from the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona under its belt, Napoli will be the one hosting this time around.

Napoli has won each of their last three home meetings against Juventus—always with a one-goal difference. Breaking down Juventus’ robust defence will be a monumental challenge, but with Victor Osimhen in fine form, it will just be a matter of creating enough space for the goal-laden Nigerian to strike.

Napoli step into this match as favourites, as they are priced 9/10 (1.90) to win. Osimhen to score anytime and Napoli to win is at 11/5 (3.20), while Napoli to be ahead by half-time is valued at 14/9 (2.55).


Eight consecutive wins and clean sheets have catapulted Juventus to second place, overtaking the likes of AC Milan and Inter. Although their play seems lacklustre at times, the Bianconeri have built up enough momentum to secure the goods, especially now that Massimiliano Allegri has switched to a 3-5-2 formation. Up next is one of the toughest tests of the Serie A season for Allegri’s men: away to Napoli.

Juventus’ last win away to Napoli dates back to the 2018/19 season. Although a Supercoppa win against the Partenopei in 2020/21 has cushioned this disturbing fact, Allegri will want to keep the ball rolling and steal a much-needed win to reduce the deficit at the top. Arkadiusz Milik, who scored a late winner against Cremonese in Juventus’ last away fixture, will definitely feature at some point against Napoli. Will he be the man who steals the show?

Juventus to win or draw the game is listed at 9/10 (1.90), with Arkadiusz Milik to score anytime and Over 2.5 goals is at 33/8 (5.10).
