Italy’s top flight returns to action with a bang as third place Napoli welcome league leaders Juventus to the Stadio San Paolo on Sunday night in a football purist’s dream.
Napoli have won their last three in a row including beating second placed rivals Roma at the beginning of March and boast the highest amount of goals scored in the league.
In Juventus, they face a side with the meanest defence having conceded only 19 times all season. This should make for a fascinating affair in a game that is likely to break the mould of Italian football stereotype of ‘score one then sit back’.
The betting is also open with Napoli at 6/4, Juventus at 37/20 and the draw at 11/5 proving the respect both sides are being given in this encounter.
However, both teams to score is an almost certainty, Juventus have scored in their last ten with Napoli themselves only failing once to find the back of the net in their last ten Serie A outings.
A score draw looks the way to go in this classic match-up at 16/5 with us.
Atalanta recovered from their 7-1 hammering at the hands of Inter Milan with a morale boasting 3-0 win over bottom side Pescara last time out.
On Sunday afternoon, the Goddesses travel to Genoa in a bid to keep Inter Milan and Lazio above them on their toes.
Genoa have had a poor season sat in 16th in the league, however, the red and blues have all but secured safety largely thanks to the bottom three sides inability to pick up wins.
With little riding on the game for Genoa expect Atalanta to further banish that Inter hammering with another win at 11/10 with us.
Joe Hart took a lot of the blame for Torino conceding twice to Inter Milan last time out, however, the Turin outfit still picked up an impressive point against Inter to leave them comfortably in tenth in the league.
Sunday morning sees Hart an Co welcome fellow mid-table side Udinese to Turin, although it is the visitors who carry the recent strong form.
Back to Back wins for Udinese off the back of an impressive draw with Juventus has seen Luigi Delneri’s side pull away from trouble and harbour hopes of a top ten finish.
Currently twelfth in the league, Udinese sit just four points behind Torino and just five behind Sampdoria.
The international break came at a bad time for Udinese but they will be keen to show that prior form can be continued despite the break in play.
Torino with home advantage are favourites for the win at 5/6 with us, with the draw a likely result at 51/20.
However, get on form side Udinese to snatch a late winner at 16/5 with us.
Heavyweights Napoli and Juventus face off in their return to domestic action at the Stadio San Paolo on Sunday night.
