Juventus vs Napoli Prediction:
Every time Juventus look to be making progress this season, they seem to suffer a setback and the latest blow was a 2-0 defeat to title rivals Internazionale which leaves The Old Lady well off the pace in Serie A.
This Super Cup contest though offers Andre Pirlo the opportunity to pick up some silverware early on in his management career and he will almost certainly select the strongest team available to him.
An added spice to this game is the fact that Juventus were awarded a default victory earlier in the season in a Serie A fixture between the two sides due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the Napoli squad.
Gennaro Gattuso’s side will be looking to avenge that and will not fear the giants from Turin here, but whichever way it swings, it promises to be a fairly open game so Over 2.5 Goals is worth looking at in the markets
