Match Result: Juventus @ 21/20
Form may go out the window in a cup final, but it is difficult to ignore the 24 point gap between Napoli and Juventus in the Serie A table. Juve have also won three of their last four games against Napoli, while also winning four of the last five Coppa Italia finals. This may not be a vintage Juventus season thus far when compared to that of other campaigns, but their experience of winning at this stage of the competition should stand them in good stead.
Match Goals: Under 2.5 goals @ 4/5
Both attacks showed their rustiness in their respective victories in the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia, with just one goal scored between the two teams in their games on Friday and Saturday. Dries Mertens was the scorer for Napoli in their 1-1 draw against Inter Milan, a goal which also saw the Belgian become the club’s all-time leading goalscorer. Juve meanwhile drew a blank against AC Milan in a game which also saw Cristiano Ronaldo miss a penalty. It’s going to take a few games for these teams to really get their sharpness back and we expect the defences to be more dominant in this one.
Anytime Goalscorer: Cristiano Ronaldo @ 5/6
Cristiano Ronaldo may have missed a penalty for Juventus at the weekend, but this price is too good to resist for a player that has already scored 21 goals in 22 games in Serie A this season. Ronaldo has a habit of stepping up on the big occasion, having scored in multiple Champions League finals during his career, as well as other domestic cup finals during his time in England and Spain with Manchester United and Real Madrid respectively. The 35-year-old is yet to win the Coppa Italia and will have an added chip on his shoulder after the surprise penalty miss against AC Milan last time out. Should he get another opportunity as good as that to score, expect the Portuguese superstar to bury it.
