Juventus Look For Record Tenth Coppa Italia

Social Sharing: 

CavaniUndefeated Serie A champions Juventus (10/11 To Beat Napoli In 90 Minutes) will be hoping to finish their season on a high by getting their hands on the Coppa Italia when facing Napoli on Sunday evening. Napoli (3/1 To Beat Juventus In 90 Minutes) on the other hand will be out for their first trophy since 1990 and something of a consolation for their poor league season.

The Partenopei showed a great deal of promise in the Champions League this season, knocking out Manchester City and losing to eventual winners Chelsea, but they won't be appearing at the top table of European football next season, following their fifth-place finish in the league.

Neither side has performed particularly well in the Coppa Italia (Juventus 4/9 To Life The Trophy) in recent years, which have been a period of domination for Roma, Lazio and Inter Milan, but Juventus are striving to get their name on the trophy for a record tenth trophy, which will no doubt provide a big incentive for them.

Napoli will be bidding to stop Juventus's unbeaten run but the 23 point gap in their league finishing positions suggest there is a gulf in quality between the two sides. That isn't to say that at full strength Napoli can't pull off a shock. In Edinson Cavani (9/2 To Score First) and Ezekiel Lavezzi (13/2 To Score First) Napoli have a strike pairing held in the highest regard by many of Europe's top clubs, players able to turn over the likes of Juventus with moments of brilliance.
