Napoli- Week 16

Cagliari vs. Juventus

 

Match Date: 18 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Sant’Elia

 

Survival is the driving force that will motivate Cagliari in displaying a good performance against the online betting favorite, Juventus. The squad hasn’t won a single match in its last 5 encounters and is already lurking at the 18th spot of the league table.

 

In their recent battle, Cagliari was able to force an even steven finish against Parma. Yet, it wasn’t enough to lift them out of the rock bottom pit.

 

As for Juventus, the Bianconerri continues to dominate the table. However, the 2 consecutive losses that it experienced lessened their lead against Roma to 1. Due to this, the pressure is on to the defending champion. So far, they’ve been standing up to the challenge. And in this upcoming match, Juve ensures that they’ll get the 3 points and keep the top spot to themselves.

 

Prediction

Cagliari 0-3 Juventus

Napoli vs. Parma

 

Match Date: 18 December 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio San Paolo

 

Losing to AC Milan was the least thing that Napoli expected. The club was forced to 3 consecutive draws and this has readily hurt their campaign. The Partenopei hopes that its 6-match undefeated streak at home will help them regain the confidence they need in penetrating the Serie A elite.

 

On a closer look, Napoli should not experience any problems when they meet Parma. Winless in its last 5 matches, it has been a relegation favorite of sports betting sites. Well, it doesn’t come as a surprise. Parma sits desperately in the rock bottom part of Serie and has only accumulated 6 points since the season started.

 

Prediction

Napoli 2-0 Parma
