One of the best derbies in the Italian Seria A is coming up this Friday, January 13, 2023, and we are excited to bring you the best Napoli v Juventus prediction. Slowly and quietly, Juventus have climbed up to the second place in the league. That could be considered as an absolute shock given how poorly they started the season and how far behind they were at one point. Napoli are still leading the way and looking to secure their first Seria A title since 1989/90. Back then, they were led by Diego Maradona. At the moment, nearly halfway through the season, they have a 7-point advantage over Juve. A defeat here could cut their lead to just four.
The Animosity Between The Fans Carries Over To The Pitch
Historically, this has always been a big rivalry as there is a lot of tension between the fans of Napoli and Juventus. Typically, that carries over to the pitch. I expect to see a hard fought game, and a good Napoli v Juventus betting tip is to pick the Over on the Yellow Cards as I expect to see a real battle with some hard tackles.
Napoli With Loads Of Attacking Options
Napoli had a quick bounce back after their defeat against Inter at the restart of the season. In the last game, they won at Sampdoria’s ground by 0:2, but they were awarded two penalties (missed one) and played for nearly an hour with a one-man advantage. Rincon from Samp received a red card in the 33rd minute. The good news for Spalleti is that he has all his main players available. Especially up front, the Italian tactician has the fortunes of picking between Osimhen, Raspadori, Giovanni Simeone, Hirving Lozano, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, and Matteo Politano.
Wow! These are six great players competing for just three starting spots. Spalletti’s preferred formation is 4-3-3, so Osimhen is the starting man up front, and two wingers are lined up in support. Typically, the wingers are Kvaratskhelia, who has been an absolute revelation this season. The third attacker is usually former Inter man Politano. The short and pacey Italian roams on the right flank with his quickness and dangerous left foot.
Juventus Are Trending In The Right Direction
Meanwhile, Juventus have stringed up a long stretch of good results. That has seen them climbed up to the second place in the table. The football they’ve played hasn’t been spectacular, but it has been productive in terms of points. Since the restart, they had a 90th minute win away at Cremonese and then another 1:0 win at home against Udinese, which also came in the last minutes. Danilo scored in the 86th minute to be exact.
According to the official club website, the team has been preparing hard for this derby match. They had a double training session on Wednesday, they will have another one today, and leave for Naples in the afternoon. Arkadius Milik, former Napoli striker, has been in good form lately. He scored the winner against Cremonese and put in a good shift against Udine. As usual, it’s always a good betting pick to put money on a player to score against his former team. That’s why one of the high-value and free betting picks for this Napoli v Juventus prediction would be on Milik to Score at Any Time. The odds are around 5.00!

Juventus have won eight straight games without even conceding! That’s eight straight games without BTTS to score, so that run is bound to end. Napoli will certainly break that run and get at least one goal, if not two. Meanwhile, Juve have been playing better lately. They have prepared well for this game, good options up front. The return of Chiesa, Di Maria. Milik is in good form against his former club. All positive factors suggesting a goal for the Old Lady.
