🔑 Our key picks
There have only been two goalless draws in the last 11-years between Juventus and Napoli, and both of those stalemates arrived in the Coppa Italia. The last four meetings between the pair in Serie A have all ended with both teams getting on the scoreboard. Juventus have failed to keep a single clean sheet in their last five home games against Napoli, and the visitors head into the game on the back of a huge 6-0 victory.
Over 2.5 goals have been produced in four of the last five encounters between Juventus and Napoli. Each of Juventus' last five matches in all competitions (including friendlies) have seen over 2.5 goals scored. Four of Napoli's last five competitive and non-competitive outing shave also produced over 2.5 goals, so you can see why we're expecting goals on Sunday. Napoli have scored 8-goals in their opening two league games, and Juventus have notched 5-goals in their first two outings.
Napoli have won three of their last six matches against Juventus, which includes that penalty shoot-out victory in the Coppa Italia final back in June. The visitors haven't lost any of their last four matches in all competitions (including friendlies), and head into Sunday's clash having won their opening two games in Serie A. Juventus dropped points away at Roma last time out, drawing 2-2. At the same time, Napoli claimed a 6-0 victory over Genoa.
