Juventus facing Napoli

Both Napoli and Juventus got back in shape in the midweek Serie A game, where both teams got a much needed win to their sheet. It might have been most important for Napoli, as they have struggled lately, and it was clear that the 2-0 win against Empoli did in some way take away a lot of the pressure on the top side.Serie A

But today, the two teams face each other, in one of the biggest match ups in the Italian Serie A this season. Juventus are the team playing at home today, and they are the favorites both to wins this fixture, but also to take the title. Napoli are how ever a team capable of beating Juventus, if the home side are having a bad day.

Juventus did fail to win against AC Milan last weekend, and they should be extra motivated to get the win today, but I think Napoli will be able to withstand the pressure Juventus will put on them. Lorenzo Insigne and Dries Mertens could prove very valuable for Napoli in this match, as the fitness of the Juve defense is sketchy at the moment.
