The Italian national team manager Cesare Prandelli has said that he feels that the upcoming clash between Napoli and Juventus will determine the destination of the title this season. Napoli and Juventus will be locking heads with each other for the second time this season.
The match cannot be any crucial because Juventus have the opportunity to finally pull away from Napoli. Antonio Conte received a lot of pressure only a few weeks ago due to the impressive challenge from Napoli, as they moved within a few points of Juventus at the top of the table. However, Napoli have slipped since then and they are six points behind Juventus coming into the match.
If Juventus manage a victory from this difficult away match, then they must have one hand on the title due to their convincing nine-point advantage according to Prandelli. Unibet are offering similar odds to Manchester United winning the Premier League.
However, if Napoli managed to use their home advantage and secure the victory, then it would cut the gap to just three points. In that case, the title race will be once again blown wide open. Lazio also have an outside chance of catching the leaders of Napoli manage a victory against Juventus this weekend. Napoli, though, come into the match on the back of a poor run of form, which has seen them take just only one victory in the last five matches.
“The game will give you the exact destination of the title. It is a game that will be full of emotion and technical ability. They are two very large clubs and we hope to see a great match. Both coaches have built their careers on very hard work, and the match should reflect this,” said the Italian manager. Juventus are also on a poor run of form after having just one win in the last three matches.
