Juventus takes on Napoli this afternoon in a clash between the top two teams in Serie A.
Both teams will be looking to secure three points in this match. Napoli will want to pull away from a surging Juve while the Bianconeri will look to close the gap between the two sides. Considering the importance of this match and each team’s recent form, this is going to be a great match.
Napoli has been at the top of the table all season. They’ve only lost one match this season which came immediately after the World Cup break. Juventus, on the other hand, really struggled at the start of the season. They weren’t able to do much in league play and crashed out of the Champions League.
Since their early struggles, Juventus has been different. The Bianconeri have won 8 league games in a row and are looking for their 9th.
Juventus looks like they are almost back to full strength, too. With Federico Chiesa coming back into the lineup against Napoli, Juventus should be dynamic in the attacking third and their defense should be able to slow down Napoli’s attacking players.
That won’t be easy, though. Napoli boasts a number of quality players across the pitch like Victor Osimhen, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, and Piotr Zielinski among others. Juve will certainly have its hands full with this many quality players.
This is going to be a competitive match for the full 90 minutes. With everything on the line, I believe this is going to be very even with very few goals scored.

Napoli will get a goal out of Victor Osimhen and Juventus will equalize through ex-Napoli man Arkadiusz Milik, who will want to make an impact against his old side. Both sides will have to wait until next time to change the look of the table too much.
