Action from Doha , Quatar as Juventus and Napoli face off in the Super Cup final. A strange location perhaps for the game but one that should see both teams play attractive football. Juventus are the league leaders and Champions from last season and they face off against a Napoli team that won the Copa Italia. Juventus will look to Pirlo, Pogba, Tevez and Buffon to lead the way for the Champions. Juventus have won the league back to back and will be looking to make it four in a row. This game is nothing more than a glorified friendly and it is hard to know how strong a team Juve will put out.
Rafa Benitez though has a habit of winning these one off games, he had a good record when in charge of Liverpool and I think the Napoli boss will look at this as another opportunity to get a trophy. With a really strong forward line including Callejon, Higuain, Hamsik and Mertens there is no doubting that Napoli have the quality to get the win here. I also think there is more chance of Napoli putting out a strong line up.
I am going to take Napoli to lift the trophy at 5/2, it may take extra time or penalties to get it done but I think they come out on top in the end in what is basically a glorified friendly.
