Napoli and Juventus are going to face each other in one of the most exciting matches of the Serie A 22nd round. The hosts want to secure a place in the top four, while the away side wishes to enter the title race.
Napoli vs Juventus Match Preview & Team News
Napoli has been pretty inconsistent lately, and two defeats in the previous five rounds saw them declining to 6th spot. However, they are only three points behind Lazio and Roma, with one game in hand. Although Gennaro Gattuso’s side puts very good displays both defensively and in the front, they spilled some important points. Napoli lost their last two games on the road against Verona and Genoa, and they should have won those. Lorenzo Insigne and the lads won’t have the opportunity to defend the Coppa Italia trophy, as Atalanta eliminated them last Wednesday. Napoli can now focus entirely on securing a Champions League spot at the end of the campaign. However, a tough challenge is ahead of them, and the hosts need a disciplined performance.
Juventus significantly improved lately, and they also made it to the Coppa Italia finals after kicking out Inter. Bianconeri celebrated three times in a row and climbed to 3rd place. The defending champions are seven points behind Milan, with one game in hand. Andrea Pirlo’s side is very hard to crack lately, and they conceded only once in the last seven matches. On the other hand, Cristiano Ronaldo and the lads are clinical in front of the oppositions’ net. Juventus spilled some important points on the road this season, despite losing only once. However, they managed to get back home with a win four times from the last five outings. The hot ground in Naples is always challenging for any side, and we’ll see how Juventus will cope with it.
