Italian Coppa Italia Final Preview and Tips
Napoli and Juventus contest the Coppa Italia final at Stadio Olimpico in Rome. There is no extra time if the match is a draw, this one could go down to a penalty shootout.
All 4 of Napoli’s Coppa Italia matches saw under 2.5 goals, including 3 clean sheets. Napoli may have seen both teams score in their last 4 competitive matches but remain unbeaten in 6 (W4, D2). Their games have been tense, with 9 of the last 10 matches being separated by under 1.5 goals at full-time – which has also been the case in 10 of the last 12 clashes between the two.
On the prowl for an impressive 14th cup title, Juventus will be wary of conceding first considering they’re winless in the last 4 competitive matches where they conceded first (D1, L3). 12 wins from their last 18 matches solid form to bring into this final though (D2, L4), although they have only managed 7 clean sheets during that period.
Central defender Merih Demiral is injured for Juventus. Fellow centre back Giorgio Chiellini and striker Gonzalo Higuain didn’t feature against Milan.
For Napoli, right-back Kevin Malcuit is injured alongside centre back Kostas Manolas.
