Napoli vs Roma
SAT 13th FEB 2021 – KO 17:00
BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
On Saturday evening, Napoli host Juventus at the Stadio Diego Maradona, in a big game at the top of the Serie A table.
Head coach Gennaro Gattuso has come under increasing pressure in Naples of late, as the Azzurri have now suffered two defeats in the last three games in Serie A. Last time out, the home side suffered a 2-1 defeat at Genoa. The defeat leaves them sixth-place, but just three points adrift of the Champions League spots. They are also just five points behind the third-place visitors in the table.
Napoli’s recent games have certainly not lacked entertainment value of late, with over 2.5 goals scored in five of their last six Serie A games.
Their usual strong home form has dipped slightly in recent weeks, but they have still managed to win four of their last six home matches in Serie A.
The reigning Italian champions have enjoyed an unconvincing start to life under club legend Andrea Pirlo. They are currently seven points behind league leaders Milan and five behind second-place Inter.
The Bianconeri’s form has improved of late, as they have now won six of their last seven matches in the Italian top-flight. The champions have been prolific in front of goal of late, scoring at least two goals in all six wins.
Juventus have a decent recent away record in the Italian top-flight, winning four of their last five league matches on their travels. Once again the visitors have been prolific on their travels, scoring at least two goals in all four of their recent away victories.
Napoli will be without Faouzi Ghoulam and Kalidou Koulibaly through illness, while Konstantinos Manolas and Dries Mertens look set to miss out due to injury.
Juventus could be without Aaron Ramsey and Paulo Dybala due to injuries.
