JUVENTUS and Napoli travel to Doha for the annual Italian Super Cup fixtures which is being played overseas five times.
The Italian champs have won on the last two occasions including a 4-2 win over Napoli in Beijing in 2012 so it’s clear they take it seriously even if doesn’t carry the importance of a Serie A match.
Both sides won their final Serie A fixtures of 2014 on Thursday – Napoli were 2-0 winners at home to Parma to while Juve won 3-1 at Cagliari. That result ended a run of three games without a win for Juve who are being chased by Roma at the top of the table.
Napoli had won just once in six games before seeing off struggling Parma so neither have been in the best of shape recently.
However, Juve tempt at a best 21-20 with Ladbrokes and it’s a possible Super Single with team news suggesting they’ll go full strength. Napoli are 3-1 at bet365 with the draw paying 5-2 at bet365.
Juve have won the last three meetings of the sides to nil and lost just one of the last six. For a first scorer Carlos Tevez is a best 9-2 at Ladbrokes and William Hill to score but I want to see starting line-ups before having a punt.
