Juventus and Napoli are going to face each other in another derby of the Italian Serie A 3rd round. Both sides want to challenge the title and will be searching for valuable points from this game.
Match Preview & Team News
Juventus seeks for its 10th Scudetto in a row, and they have a hell of a team. Cristiano Ronaldo still plays at the very top level, while the hosts also signed Arthur from Barcelona and loaned Alvaro Morata. They opened the campaign with a confident 3:0 win over Sampdoria but had a hiccup away to Roma last weekend. Griggiorossi managed to pull a 2:2 draw despite Ronaldo’s brace. Now, another tough challenge is ahead of Bianconeri, and they need to search for a victory in order not to lose pace with the main rivals at the very start of the season. Last time, they were one point ahead of Inter, but only because of poor displays in the last couple of rounds, after they already secured the top spot. Inter should be their biggest challengers, but Napoli seems pretty impressive at the start as well.
The team from the south of Italy enjoys an excellent start as they celebrated against Parma 2:0 in the premier round, while they trashed Genoa 6:0 last weekend. After a disappointing campaign when they finished 7th but lifted the Italian Cup, the visitors want to enter the title race. Gennaro Gattuso’s side has been pretty tight in the back as they managed to keep the clean sheet in both games. However, their backline is about to undergo a stern test against the defending champions. Although Napoli was pretty inactive in the transfer window, key players should remain in the club despite many rumors. The away side celebrated two wins in a row against their next opponents, and they are looking forward to a third in a row.
