Napoli vs Juventus Match Preview and Team News
Napoli got into their position on the back of an incredible run of one defeat in their last 13 league games, with Juventus losing one in their previous ten league outings. Despite their respective consistency, neither team has been flush with goals in recent games, with Napoli scoring under 2.5 goals in five of their last seven league matches, and Juventus have matched that record in their last seven Serie A clashes. That figure carries over into overall goals scored per game for both teams, with only one of Juventus’ last five league games featuring over 2.5 goals scored in total and Napoli only seeing over 2.5 goals scored at a full-time twice in their last five domestic matches. Piotr Zielinski plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Hirving Lozano is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his performance.
Juventus are plotting a potential title charge in the second half of the season, but they face a huge task to try and haul back Luciano Spalletti’s pace setters. Victory for the hosts would put them ten points clear of Juventus in second and potentially put an end to any chance of a battle in the coming weeks. With that in mind, Juventus simply cannot afford to lose at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, and their recent form backs up their chances of a positive result. Bianconeri have been in excellent shape lately, winning seven times in a row in the Italian top flight. Filip Kostić is a guy who causes a lot of problems for the opponent on the left side. He is fast and unstoppable in a one-on-one game. Moise Kean is a new reinforcement, and this guy is expected to score as many goals as possible.
