Likely Winner:

This game does not have any clear favourites but will favour Napoli slightly more. Gennaro Gattuso’s side has been in better form than Pirlo’s and they disappointed the defending champions when the last 2 sides et each other. The JUV vs NAP Today Match Prediction will be an important one in determining the dynamics of the race for the Champions League spots. But Juventus has the tightest defence in the league and it will not be easy to breach the defence, but at the same time, Napoli is one of the highest-scoring sides in the league.
