Juventus vs Napoli - 9/29/18 Serie A Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Juventus will be playing Napoli at home in the Serie A. These are the top 2 teams in Italy and we should be able to watch a fascinating contest.

Napoli have had a decent start to the season have won 5 matches and lost 1. Napoli beat Parma midweek and the team looked very dominant in that performance as it only took the team 4 minutes to get the lead. Going forward, the likes of Lorenzo Insigne and Dries Mertens have been exceptional for Napoli and having taken the side close to the title last season, they are doing a great job once more. The team will know that this will their hardest match of the season considering they will be away from home for against the reigning champions. It will take an incredible performance from Napoli to beat Juventus.

On the other side of the coin, Juventus still have a perfect record this season as the team has won all of their 6 Serie A matches. The addition of Ronaldo has made this team incredibly strong as the superstar has provided great attacking support and goals for Juventus. If Juventus win this match, they will have a 6 point lead over the rest of the pack and with a tough schedule ahead, that lead will be very desired by Allegri. Juventus get amazing support at home and with such a big opponent, the crowd is expected the be massive. Juventus are coming off a 2-0 win against Bologna and that momentum should make the home side very hard to beat in this match.

While Napoli are a great side, I see them losing to Juventus. Juventus have better players, are in better form and have the advantage of playing at home. Taking these facts into consideration, I see a Juventus win.
