Insight and Analysis: Juventus vs Napoli Serie A 2022 Match Prediction
Juventus vs Napoli Serie A 2022 Match Prediction, Injuries/Suspension, Match Facts, Team News, Preview and Where to Watch.
Prior to the winter break, Juventus went on a five-match Serie A (SA) unbeaten streak (W4, D1), putting them back in contention for European qualifying.
They’re speculating that 2022 will be a terrific year for them.
They lead 1-0 at halftime in all five of those games.
Although doing so here won’t guarantee anything, since they were ahead by the same score at half-time in their 2-1 H2H setback earlier this season.
If they can improve on the three home league wins ‘to nil’ they’ve managed in their previous four SA fixtures, they’ll keep their European aspirations alive (L1).
They’ve also beaten Napoli in recent years, having lost only one of the last 11 SA H2Hs they hosted (W9, D1).
Nonetheless, Juventus will have to try to retain their domination despite the absence of several key players, including Georgio Chiellini, who is suffering from Covid-19.
However, their absences pale in contrast to Napoli’s, who have been sidelined due to a combination of Covid-19 and injuries.
International call-ups and suspensions will leave them unable to choose a team that is similar to their first option.
They’ve struggled recently after going 12 games without losing in South Africa at the start of the season.
Following that, they only won twice (D1, L4) and only scored once in their last three games (W1, L2).
However, for a squad in desperate need of a boost to start the New Year, they can take comfort in their away form, since they have only lost one SA road game this season (W6, D2).
And they’ve won each of their last four such matches (W2, D1, L1).AC Milan vs Napoli Serie A 2021 Match Prediction
