Napoli vs Juventus

Competition – Serie A

Stadium – Stadio San Paolo

Date: 1st December 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

The rivalry between Napoli and Juventus has been huge for some time now but this season’s threatens to be the biggest with the Serie A title looking like it could end up in Naples.

Napoli currently top the league table and remain unbeaten locally.

They have achieved this with an attractive brand of attacking football that may make Juventus’ more direct approach go out of fashion soon.

There are about five teams who could end up as Serie A winner this season and the matches between the top sides like this will go a long way in deciding who ends up with the league crown.

Napoli’s attacking game will obviously make Juventus also consider coming forward which could potentially make this game a very interesting one.

This game is almost always a high scoring affair as both teams have scored in eight of their last nine matches against eachother.

These two teams are the two highest scorers in the league this season.

Juventus leads the way with 40 league goals while Napoli are second with 35 league goals.

Juventus have been involved in more both teams to score scenarios in the league this season (83% of their matches).

The last time they both played against eachother at the end of last season, Napoli won 3-2.

On current form, it would not be surprising if this game’s outcome is the same as that however Juventus are always a difficult team to break down.

Higuain has scored four goals for Juventus in his last four matches against his former employers and he will be looking to net in this game.
