Juventus have only lost once in their last five meetings with Napoli and are on short odds ($1.91) to win again on Sunday (4:45 AM AEST) at the Allianz Stadium in their second Serie A match of the season. 

Maurizio Sarri's men scraped a 1-0 win against Parma away from home in their season opener thanks to a first-half goal from injured centre-half Georgio Chiellini. The Old Lady has been fancied to end up on the winning side once again. A draw is being traded at $3.30 and a win for Napoli is at $4.20.

As for Sarri's former club clad in blue, a handicap deal is available at $1.83 where the away team can be favoured to win or be held. Juventus are priced at $3.50 to win by more than a goal in the same handicap deal. 

Napoli fired in four goals against Fiorentina away from home and began their league season with a 4-3 win. A Lorenzo Insigne brace and goals from Dries Mertens and Jose Callejon set up the win for the men in blue. Insigne is an important part of Sarri's attack and will be trusted to produce in front of goal once against a strong Juventus defence. The Italian striker is priced at $4.33 to score a goal. 

Cristiano Ronaldo is yet to score his first goal of the season and is tipped at $3.75 to net the opening goal of the game. He's priced at $1.83 to score at any time in the match, which seems to be a sure-fire bet at most times in Ronaldo's case.

Gonzalo Higuain, who returned from Chelsea, is at $2.40 to score while Paulo Dybala is third in the list with his goalscoring prowess traded at $2.75. Juventus's star No.7 is at an incredible $21.00 to score a hat-trick against Napoli. 

Both teams have been backed to score at $1.83 and a goalless score is tipped at $8.00. The last five meetings between have not always been high-scoring affairs and a match with less than 2.5 goals can be traded at $1.66. Banking on Juventus defence and goalkeeper Szczęsny for a clean sheet will fetch you a return of $2.50.
