With Rafael Benitez set to leave this season, the upcoming match serves as his last chance to impress.
As for Juventus, the result barely matters. The online betting favorite has already won the Scudetto by a huge margin that not even consecutive defeats could bring them down.
Juventus will more likely to shift its focus to the match pitted against Lazio. The squads will have a face-off to determine the team, which deserves to dominate the Coppa Italia.
In as much as this game plays a heavy importance on Lazio’s performance, the same thing is true is for the Old Lady. For Juve, winning the Coppa Italia gives them their first double under the tutelage of Massimiliano Allegri. Should they win, the squad gets the chance to win a historic treble.
Apparently, this encounter is more significant to Napoli. Should they win, they will have the opportunity to level with Lazio and hopefully, outrank the latter. If such scenario takes place, the Partenopei could play in the Champions League again. It could be consider as a great come back since their lackluster and inconsistent performance during this season.
Juve and Napoli’s matches have all been very close and this one will be no different. As mentioned, this game matters the most to Napoli. Thus, there is a huge possibility for the visitor to snatch a narrow victory or at the very least, share the spoils in this encounter.
Juventus 1-1 Napoli
