Juventus is welcoming Napoli to Allianz Stadium in the postponed game or round 3 in the Italian Serie A.
Juventus is in a bit of a slump ever since they got knocked out of the Champions League, and the title race in Serie A is now definitely over for them. Juventus hasn’t won any of their last 2 games in Serie A, and they are now in 4th place with 56 points, and under pressure from Napoli who have the same number of points behind them. In their last game against Torino, Juventus was the dominant team with an impressive 71% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 6 big chances created, and a high 90% of the correct passes. After getting ahead in the 13th minute, Juventus conceded 2 goals, and they were losing in the 46th minute. With a goal in the 79th minute, Juventus has tied the score, and the final result of this match was 2-2. Ronaldo has scored 24 goals for Juventus so far this season, while Chiesa and Morata added 7 goals each. Morata also added 9 assists. Demiral, Bonucci, and Arthur are all injured. Not only Juventus is out of the title race, but their Champions League spot is also in danger, and Juventus better get their stuff together if they want to play in the Champions League next season.
Napoli has finally gained some consistency, and they are now on a 4-game winning streak, while they have won 6 of their last 7 games. The last game ended in a draw. Thanks to this fantastic streak, Napoli has climbed the standings to 5th place with 56 points, and with a win here, Napoli will get to the Champions League spot. With 62 scored goals, Napoli is one of the best offensive teams in the league this season, while their defense has been decent with 32 conceded goals in 28 games. Napoli was playing against Crotone in their last Serie A game, and they were the better team with 63% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and a high 90% of the correct passes. After leading 3-1 at halftime, Napoli lost focus in the second half, and Crotone has tied the score to 3-3. Luckily for Napoli, they were able to score 1 more goal in this match, and they have won this game 4-3. Insigne is Napoli’s leading goalscorer with 14 goals and 6 assists, while Lozano added 9 goals. Mertens has 8 goals and 6 assists. Ghoulam and Osimhen are the only two injured players for Napoli at this time. Napoli is playing great offensive soccer this season, but they have dropped a lot of points where they shouldn’t have, but Napoli still has a good shot at getting to the Champions League spot.
Juventus has been dominant at home in this matchup, but Napoli is now on a 4-game winning streak, and they are undefeated in their last 7 games. I wouldn’t be surprised if Napoli takes all 3 points here, but I will stick to goals in this game, on both ends.
