Their past results show that Juventus:

Indicating their bias toward productive encounters, the back of the net has been hit 22 times in the prior 6 games in which SSC Napoli have taken to the field, yielding a mean average of 3.67 goals per clash. Their opponents have hit 7 from this total. That kind of trend won’t necessarily be carried forward into this next game, however.
