Juventus v Napoli betting preview
Home advantage gives Juventus the perfect chance to set down an early markerJuventus got off to a winning start on the opening weekend, narrowbly beating 1-0 Parma away from home. Te Bianconeri are still to fire all cylinders but they did look sharp in defence, which is a good sign for the new season. It would an emotional start for Sarri who, during three seasons at Napoli, turned them into Italy's most eye-catching side. The Old Lady is unbeaten in the last 21 matches at the Juventus Stadium and have won 5 of their last 6 home matches against Napoli in all competitions. Last year, the direct match in Turin ended 3-1, with a brace from Mario Mandzukic and a Leaonardo Bonucci's goal giving the Bianconeri a pivotal victory.
Sarri is expected to keep faith in the same starting XI he chose against Parma. That would see Gonzalo Higuain getting the nod over Paulo Dybala, at least until the transfer window closes on September 2. Douglas Costa and, of course, Cristiano Ronaldo will complete the frontline. The likes of Blaise Matuidi, Miralem Pjanic and Sami Khedira are expected to start in the middle of the park, since Aaron Ramsey is still sidelined. New signings Matthijs De Ligt will replace Giorgio Chiellini, who damaged his ligaments. Danilo will be benched once again, as Alex Sandro and Mattia De Sciglio are expected to play as full backs.
Napoli finished just four points behind Juventus last seasonNapoli, now in their second season under Carlo Ancelotti, opened their Serie A season by coming from behind to down Fiorentina 4-3. They were also aided by a much controversial decision from the referee to award them a penalty, while there was not even a contact, but was not even reviewed by the VAR. We saw them hit the ground running going forward, but defensive issues remain although Kostas Manolas is a clear upgrade over Raul Albiol. As to direct encounter, Napoli have lost 7 matches at the Juventus Stadium, failing to score more than a single goal. Their sole victory came on April 2018, courtesy of Kalidou Koulibaly's last-gasp header.
Ancelotti is without just one player in striker Arkadiusz Milik. As a result, Dries Mertens is expected to lead the line, with a trio of offensive midfielders behind him - Fabian Ruiz, Josè Callejon and Lorenzo Insigne. New signing Hirving Lozano is expected to play at some stage. In midfield, Allan and Piotr Zielinski should get the nod over Elif Elmas while no changes are expected in the four man backline. As a result, Giovanni Di Lorenzo and Mario Rui will flank the central pair Manolas-Koulibaly.
