In Italy, the ultimate top game takes place this Sunday. On the 26th round of the Serie A receives the second-placed SSC Napoli welcomes their rivals of Juventus Turin. The encounter will take a place at Stadio San Paolo in Naples. The game will be led by Gianluca Rocchi.
Napoli has to be without two defenders. The Spaniard Raul Albiol is missing due to a knee injury, the Portuguese Mário Rui has to pause because of a thigh injury. The former German international Sami Khedira cannot be reinstated for Turin's "Old Lady". Colombian midfielder Juan Cuadrado cannot play either (knee injury). Questionable is the use of the Brazilian Douglas Costa (thigh injury).
The home team of Napoli was last in good shape lately. The team of former Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti lost none of his last six competitive games and conceded only one goal. The southern Italians have not lost a single home game this season in the league and had to accept only seven goals at home. With only 18 goals conceded, they have the second-best defensive of Serie A. Last Napoli celebrated a clear 4:0 victory against Parma Calcio at Parma.
“Old Lady” champion has not lost a league game this season. With only 15 conceded Juventus provides the best defence of Serie A. Away conceded the series champion of recent years even only seven goals in twelve games. In the previous round, the team of coach Massimiliano Allegri struggled to a 1:0 victory at Bologna.
In direct comparison, both teams met at a high level in the last two years. Napoli and Juventus Turin have each won two out of the last five competitive matches, one game ended in a draw. The reigning champions won their last match 3:1 at home in September.
Due to the defensive strength of both teams is not to start from a scoreless game. We, therefore, believe that both teams will not meet in this clash. Also, we expect a tough game out of both sides. The second suggestion that will share with you is Draw (1st Half).
