Juventus hosts Napoli in round 3 of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Wednesday, April 7th at Allianz Stadium (Turin)
Andrea Pirlo's team is on the fourth line in the Serie A standings (56 points after 28 rounds). The Old Lady has 16 victories, eight draws, and four losses. 10 matches before the end of the championship, Juventus is 12 points behind the leading Inter Milan. And the Black-and-Whites risk being left without a champion’s title for the first time since the 2011/12 season. Moreover, it is questionable whether Juventus will play in the Champions League next season. Pirlo's team is ahead of Napoli only in terms of additional indicators (the Neapolitans also have 56 points). The latest results do not add optimism to the fans of the Old Lady. Before the international break, Juve lost at home to Benevento (0-1), and last Sunday the Bianconeri lost points in the away derby against Torino (2-2). Despite an early goal by Federico Chiesa, the home team took the lead thanks to a double by Antonio Sanabria. The draw for the Old Lady was saved by Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored in the 79th minute.

Napoli is fifth in the championship standings (56 points after 28 matches). The Blues have chalked up 18 wins, two draws, and eight losses. The Neapolitans were eliminated from the Italian Cup and Europa League in February and focused on Serie A, where they achieved excellent results. In the last six rounds, Napoli has gained five victories and one draw. The unbeaten run allowed Gattuso's team to come close to the Champions League zone. In case of a victory over Juventus, the Blues can move to the top three. However, it’s not easy for Neapolitans to score points. On Sunday, Napoli hardly overcame the resistance of the worst team in Serie A, Crotone (4-3). Lorenzo Insigne, Victor Osimhen, Dries Mertens, and Giovanni Di Lorenzo scored goals for Napoli.
Even though Juventus will play at home, it cannot be called a favorite. Pirlo's team has been unstable throughout the season, and Napoli has won victories in the last two matches against the Old Lady in Serie A. It is likely that the bet on an exchange of goals will be the winning one. This outcome took place in four of the last five head-to-head matches between Juventus and Napoli in the championship. Moreover, both teams now have obvious problems in defense. Juventus didn’t concede only from Spezia in the last seven official matches, and the choice of the defense players will be limited due to the illnesses of Bonucci and Demiral. On the other hand, the recent matches of Napoli versus Crotone and Sassuolo (3-3) showed that the Neapolitans also have failures in defense. Therefore, we think that the teams will please us with an exchange of goals scored.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score - yes
