Napoli – Juventus: prediction for the match of the championship of Italy
The match between Napoli and Juventus on March 3, 2019 will be the last hope for the Neapolitans in a possible fight for the league title. Fans will hear the starting whistle at the San Paolo stadium at 22:30 Moscow time.Napoli The Partenopeas lost points in two consecutive matches, first a goalless draw with Fiorentina, and then the same result in a home game with Torino. Unnecessary losses led to the backlog of the team from Naples from Juventus by as much as 13 points, which significantly complicates the task before the Napoli-Juventus fight, and practically deprives the hosts of the chances for a champion title. In the previous round, the Neapolitans went to Parma. The guests quickly got down to business and took the lead in the 19th minute, Piotr Zielinski outplayed Elseid Husai and ran out to meet the goalkeeper, the Pole’s kick was not too strong, but that was enough for a goal scored – 0:1. On the midfielder’s goal scored, the matter did not end. Very soon, his compatriot Arkadiusz Milik cunningly took a free kick, the striker shot under the wall and doubled the advantage of Napoli in the 36th minute. The teams went into the break with a two-goal Napoli handicap. In the second half, the situation remained the same. “Partenopeians” went on the attack again and in the 73rd minute Milik celebrated the goal scored again, the forward intercepted the opponent’s pass and realized a one-on-one with the goalkeeper – 0:3. The final score was set by Adam Unas, the midfielder appeared on the field ten minutes before the end of normal time, and two minutes later he was already celebrating a goal scored, the Algerian got rid of the guardianship of the defenders and ran out to meet the goalkeeper, he only had to beat the goalkeeper – 0:4. Juventus Juventus is also not all right, yes, the team wins and has not a single defeat to its credit, but the game of Turintsy wants to be better. The fights against Lazio (1:2) and Parma (3:3) were not very convincing. The trip to Rome was very tense and only in the last minutes the guests managed to snatch a winning result, and a draw with Parma is a real shock for Juve fans. The away match of the previous round against Bologna also did not look impressive from the side of the guests. The players of the hosts acted high and tried to quickly take the ball away from the players of the “old lady”. Bologna dominated during the game and tried to hit the gates of the guests from a long distance, however, this did not help the hosts’ players. The guests did not manage to control the game and create scoring chances near the opponent’s goal. Turintsy played a boring game, sometimes went on the counterattack and rarely created dangerous chances, but they still found their moment. The goal of the “black and white” came out of nowhere, Paulo Dybala intercepted the ball from the opponent’s defender and started a counterattack with a pass to Blaise Matuidi, the French midfielder returned the ball to the Argentinean, who shot the goalkeeper from close range – 0:1 in the 67th minute. This striker’s goal was decisive in the match. Before the Napoli-Juventus game, the guests will need to seriously think about some changes, because their today’s game does not inspire confidence at all.
