Juventus vs Napoli should be a very interesting clash between two strong Italy Serie A favourites, which will be held on Allianz Stadium, in Turin. One of the most important matches this season for both teams will be at the very beginning. After the last year Napoli failure, they should be extremely motivated by taking advantage over the Juve from the first meeting, until the end of the season. However, Juventus made big changes and additions this offseason, so they are prepared to face any difficulties.

By head to head for Napoli last season was very unsuccessful. They lost twice against Juventus eather at home and away. At Allianz Stadium, Mertens opened the scoreboard, however, the Black and Whites made a comeback and scored 3 goals taking 3 important points. In Napoli, later, the Old Lady took advantage because the early A. Meret red card and then scored twice. Finally, they won the match at Stadio San Paolo totally ruining all chances of Napoli to fight for Serie A 1st place. This time, we expect a match with even bigger excitement between Juventus vs Napoli, so read our thought here below.

Juventus

Juventus won their first match of Serie A against Parma, however, with some troubles in the attack. The basic squad of the team almost did not change, since they played against Parma with the main squad of last year. New players are watching the game and getting ready for big debuts. In the first game, Parma gave a good rebuff to Juventus, as they conceded only one goal, although the class of teams is very different. In the first half, Juventus controlled the game. They very accurately shared passes, played more confidently than their rivals, but this was expected. Chiellini scored a winning goal, while Cristiano’s goal was ruled out by VAR. Moreover, Cristiano had several chances to score, however, failed to open his list in the new season. Obviously, with the players like Juventus have on the bench they are able to compete in all competitions this year.

Unfortunately, Mattia Perin and Marko Pjaca will miss next match against Parma, due to injuries.

Napoli

While Juventus played first match with problems in the attack, Napoli played first game without defence. Basically, Napoli showed their character and attitude for this season, however, in the first match they conceded 3 goals. Match against Fiorentina at Stadio Artemio Franchi, in Florence, finished with remembered 3:4 result with Napoli’s win. Fiorentina scored first from a penalty, then Napoli scored 2 just before the end of the 1st half. In the second half, both teams scored by 2 goals and had even more chances to succeed. The game turned out to be very aggressive and not understandable, as both teams opened up in defence and thought only about the attack. Such football is rare in Italy, and we are confident that Napoli will make conclusions especially before the match against Juventus. In such a game, they will surely give way to Juventus if they will open up again.

Napoli this year called several interesting players to the club. Konstantinos Manolas joined from Roma and should be a great strengthening of the defence. Moreover, several days aga Hirving Lozano will bring more stamina and speed to Napoli’s attacks as he joined from PSV. Unfortunately, Arkadiusz Milik will miss the important game against Juventus due to injury.
