Italian Serie A – Juventus-Napoli
Juventus welcomes Napoli in the big derby of the 34th round of the Italian Serie A. This clash could give us a lot of answers about the title race in the Calcio.
Juve are leading the standings with 85 points and they have 4 points advantage in front of the 2nd Napoli. If they manage to win this game, Juventus will be unstoppable from winning the title again. It would be game over for Napoli.
And the opposite – if Napoli wins, Maurizio Sarri’s team will return in the title race. This makes this game so important – it can end the title race or ressurect it.
Juventus have a record of 27 wins, 4 draws and 2 defeats since the start of the season. In their last five games the Old Lady are unbeaten – three wins and two draws. In the previous round Juve surprisingly made a 1-1 draw during the visit to Crotone, which once again gave Napoli some chances for the first place.
Napoli were leading the Serie A standings for a long period of time, but Maurizio Sarri’s team didn’t keep its levels long enough. Juventust waited for their moment and took the first place again. Now Juve are close to the title and they will win it if they beat Napoli on Saturday evening.
This shall be an interesting game. Both teams have some good offensive talent and very good midfield lines. Juventus are favourites because of the home ground advantage, but don’t be too quick to write Napoli off. The Azzuri are team that can beat anyone, even Juventus.
Juventus and Napoli are the two strongest teams in Italy at the moment, which makes this match really interesting and maybe unpredictable. And especially now the match is very important for the title race. Will it be all over?
