Juventus – Napoli: should we expect a spectacle?
In the last four league matches, Juventus and Napoli exchanged goals, but whether to expect a productive match on October 4 – you will find the answer in the forecast. Will teams score goals?
Juventus was able to win the title last season, did it quite confidently, but failed in other tournaments, which cost the work of Maurizio Sarri. Andrea Pirlo was appointed to the position of head coach , under whom a number of acquisitions were made, but more importantly, the squad was finally noticeably cleared of players whose qualifications in recent years have caused great questions.
The debut as the head coach of Juventus turned out to be more than successful for Pirlo – in the home match, the “old lady” left no chances for “Sampdoria”, having loaded three unanswered goals into its goal.
Nevertheless, the feeling of triumph did not last long – already in the next match Roma created a huge number of problems for Juventus, piercing the old lady’s defense with sharp counterattacks like butter. As a result, we managed to snatch only a 2: 2 draw , and Adrien Rabiot, removed in that meeting, will not be able to take part in today’s battle.
“Napoli” failed last season and could not compete for a ticket to the Champions League, the consolation prize for Gennaro Gattuso ‘s team was the victory in the Italian Cup, thanks to which they managed to guarantee participation in the Europa League group. In the summer, the “parthenopaeans” were not active in the transfer market, but it makes sense to highlight the purchase of Viktor Osimkhen.
In the first round of the championship, Napoli won a 2-0 victory over Parma in a difficult match, scoring both goals in the second half of the meeting. The second round was an easy walk for the Neapolitans – weakened by the absence of several key players, Genoa crumbled and conceded six goals without scoring a single one. A devastating 6-0 win put Napoli in first place in the table.

Juventus is still looking for the optimal combination of players, the game model set by Pirlo is still far from perfect – this was clearly demonstrated by the fight with Roma. Obviously, there are plenty of vulnerabilities in the game of the “old lady” and “Napoli” will surely find them, with such a powerful attack without goals in Turin, the “Parthenopeans” will obviously not remain.
Nevertheless, Juventus will also play only to win, they have their trump cards, so the fight promises to be productive.
In our opinion, the match will be productive. We offer a combined forecast – both will score + total over 2.5 goals . In BC Winline, this outcome is offered with odds of 2.20
