With both teams in sensational form, Al Hain-Cole is backing the Bianconeri's superior Scudetto experience to see them to victory in a heavyweight Serie A clash
After a poor start to the campaign, the champions have gained ground on top spot thanks to 14 consecutive league victories and are 11/10 (2.10) favourites with William Hill to maintain their winning streak with their most significant result yet.
Two points clear of their opponents and with eight successive victories to their name, the Partenopei are available at 11/4 (3.75) to extend the gap by coming out on top here.
Just one of the previous eight league meetings between the sides has resulted in a draw, but you can get odds of 16/5 (4.20) on them cancelling each other out on this occasion.
It is remarkable how much these teams have progressed since their last league meeting back in September, when a 2-1 victory for Maurizio Sarri’s men took them to tenth in the standings and left the Bianconeri a further four points behind, just two clear of the relegation zone.
While that morale-boosting success propelled the Neapolitans on to win 10 and lose just one of their next 15 games as they shot up the table, it also served as a wake-up call for their northern opponents, who have lost just once since.
Now back within touching distance of their familiar position in first place, the team win four consecutive league titles to their name will feel confident of exacting revenge in this Scudetto showdown. despite the absence of Giorgio Chiellini.
So impressive is their current form that Massimiliano Allegri’s outfit make even opponents on an eight-game league winning streak appear vulnerable, with a recent Coppa Italia defeat by Inter suggesting high-flying Napoli can be frustrated.
Having conceded just once in the previous nine games and kept seven consecutive clean sheets, Juventus are more than capable of doing just that, and those 11/10 (2.10) odds appear fair on their superior title-winning experience helping them to a fifth home league win in a row against this opposition.
