Napoli News
Napoli has been playing some wonderful football in the Serie A over the past few seasons under Maurizio Sarri but they have never quite been good enough to pip Juventus to the Serie A title.

However, Napoli seems to have turned a corner during the current campaign and after 14 matches, the Partenopei have arguably been the best team in Italy so far this season – claiming a sensational 38 points from a possible 42 so far.

Of course there is still a long way to go before Napoli can dream about lifting the Serie A title for the first time in 27 years and in order to actually convince the critics of their credentials, Sarri’s men will have to beat defending champions Juventus when they pay a visit to the Stadio San Paolo on Friday.

Arkadiusz Milik and Faouzi Ghoulam will be missing the encounter due to long-term injuries but Napoli will be able to more or less field their strongest lineup on the evening.

Juventus News
Ahead of every Serie A campaign over the past five years, Juventus could blindly be tipped to win the title and they have duly gone on to claim the crown with relative ease on each occasion.

Even ahead of the current season, many backed Juventus to defend their title but things have not gone as smoothly as one would have expected.While Max Allegri’s men are probably still the best team in Italy, the competition has gotten a lot tougher this year and the likes of Napoli and Inter look like giving them a real run for their money.

Currently, in third place, Juventus travel to leaders Napoli finding themselves in an unusual situation of having to claim all three points in order to keep their title hopes intact and it will be interesting to see if the Champions manage to set themselves apart from the pretenders on the night.

Giorgio Chiellini, Juan Cuadrado, Gonzalo Higuain and Stephan Lichtsteiner are the injury concerns ahead of the clash but despite the nagging injuries, most of the four aforementioned players remain in contention to feature on Friday.

Head to Head
Napoli has not enjoyed much success against Juventus in recent years, having only won 3 times in their last 14 encounters with the giants but it has to be noted that all their three victories came at the Stadio San Paolo.

The last time Napoli hosted Juventus at the San Paolo, they claimed a stunning 3-2 victory in the Coppa Italia and the fans could be in for a real treat if the match on Friday is as half as exciting as their previous clash at the stadium.

Match Expectation
Juventus rarely (perhaps never) have headed into a Serie A clash in recent times as underdogs but they might just find the odds stacked against them ahead of Friday’s encounter.Napoli is in imperious form at the moment while Juventus have been showing some signs of weakness, as evidenced by their 3-2 defeat against Sampdoria in their last away match.

Napoli will surely be tempted by the opportunity to increase their lead over Juventus by claiming a win but at the same time, a loss could prove devastating in their title aspirations.In truth, a draw could prove to be a decent result for both sides – considering the circumstances, but that said, do not expect either team to play cautious football on the night.
