Match of the season for Maurizio Sarri

Match of the season for Maurizio Sarri

Napoli will meet Juventus within the 34th round of Serie A. This match will be decisive for Azzurri in terms of tournament value and the ability to fight for Scudetto.

Juventus and Napoli went hand in hand throughout the season. The Neapolitans occupied the first position in the championship, however a number of ties descended them to a second position. Both teams lost two matches each in the championship and the gap between them because of the tie with Crotone, 1:1, is four points. In case of Napoli’s victory at Stadio Allianz, Sarri’s team will have a chance to fight for a trophy in the last four games of Serie A.

Despite the fact that the gap has shortened, Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri is still expecting a test for the players against the team that won seven Scudetto in a row.

The manager said at the press conference:

“It is obvious that it is hard to anticipate a victory in Turin, as by the depth of the squad Juventus is the most complete team in Europe. After the match against Juventus we will still have four more rounds until the end of the championship, therefore saying that everything depends on the match in Turin is unproductive”.

Juventus have to play against Inter, Milan and Roma. The Old Lady manager Massimiliano Allegri is not going to put it off in a long time and will try to resolve all issues on Sunday.

After Napoli’s leadership in the championship, the Turinian team’s head coach emphasized:

“It will be a spectacular match. We must try and defeat Napoli now to make a real breakthrough, but anyway the season ends on the 20th of May”.

In the first half of the season, the teams met at San Paolo in Naples. Back then the only goal in the match was scored by Gonzalo Higuain angering the local torsid. The odds on the Argentine forward to score in the second match in Turin are 2.00. Juventus victory is evaluated as 2.10 and the guests’ triumph – 3.75.
