Juventus – Napoli
The champion and current leader in the Italian Serie A Juventus hosts Napoli in the most interesting game of the 11th round of the league.
Juve are the expected leader in the Serie A, having two points advantage in front of Roma and four points in front of Napoli. This is a good chance for Napoli to reduce the margin, but it will be a difficult task for them to do it at the Juventus Stadium in Turin, where it’s very hard to win even a single point. It would be also curious to see Juventus’ striker Gonzalo Higuain playing against his former club.
Juventus won four of their last five games in the Serie A, with their only misstep being the loss they suffered in the derby against Milan at the San Siro. During the week Juve fixed their mistake and won comfortably against Sampdoria at home, scoring four goals in front of their own fans.
Napoli won its last two games in the league, which helped them to get back into the Top 3 of the Serie A. The Azzurri won against Crotone and Empoli, after they have lost two times in a row before that.
Juventus will be without the injured Paulo Dybala and Marko Pjaca, while Patrice Evra also remains sidleined with a calf injury.
Napoli will be without the injured Raul Albiol and Arkadiusz Milik, while Manolo Gabbiadini is suspended for the game.
Last season Juventus won against Napoli at home, avenging the loss they suffered during their visit to Naples. Now the Old Lady is once again a big favourite to take all of the three points, especially when playing at home ground. Even if they allow themselves to lose points away from home, Juventus are almost unbeatable when playing at the Juventus Stadium in Turin.
