Serie A 2022-23
Despite the fact that recently Napoli, under the leadership of Spalletti, suffered their first defeat of the season, the club did not give up the first position and remained the leader of the tournament. The team currently has 44 points.
The first failure of the season for Napoli was Inter. The game was held in Milan and ended with a score (0-1) in favor of Inter. After 4 days, Napoli won away from Sampdoria (2-0).
Napoli have 14 victories in Serie A in 17 past rounds of the championship. The team is not only the leader in the number of points, but also in the number of goals scored (39).
Juventus, meanwhile, managed to improve their results and now the Allegri-led team is already in second place, seven points behind the leader.
The main reason for this result is the number of goals conceded, and there are only 7 of them in 17 matches of the tournament. At the same time, the club has two defeats in the championship and eleven victories.
Juventus plays modest matches in terms of performance and only in one of the five total has exceeded the mark of two goals. It was in a match with Lazio (3-0).

Napoli confidently performs at home and regularly scores points. Juventus will not be easy even with their current form.

In this match, both clubs are in good shape and can show equal football, but maxport.pro believes in the victory of the guests.
