Juventus will be playing in one of the most anticipated matchups of the season this Friday when they take on Napoli.
Napoli has been the best team in Italy this season, sitting atop the table at 44 points, 7 points ahead of Juventus. Juventus comes into this match having won their last 8 matches in Serie A. This 8-game winning streak has put Juve into second place with 37 points. A win on Friday would help close the gap between them and the league leader while also keeping that winning streak alive.
This match is shaping up to be one of the most important matches of the season. Napoli is looking to win their first Serie A title since the 1989-1990 season and their third overall in club history. With Juventus in second place, their campaign for another Scudetto is certainly alive and a win here could keep their momentum toward the title going. Of course, that will be easier said than done.
In the Juventus/Napoli matchup, Juve needs to watch out for many players that could keep them from getting the valuable three points they need to close the gap.
Napoli has been playing great football all season and has a squad that is dangerous all across the pitch. It’s impossible to highlight all of the creative and dynamic playmakers that Napoli has on the roster. So, we’re going to water it down to three specific players. Juventus will have to have clear tactics against these players to limit their influence on the match.
