It has been an extremely poor defence of the title by Napoli this season. They are already onto their third manager of the campaign after both Rudi Garcia and Walter Mazzarri have been dismissed with the Neapolitans drifting down into the middle-of-the-table before the appointment of Francesco Calzona.

Maurizio Sarri’s former assistant coach, who is now still in charge of the Slovakian national team ahead of UEFA EURO 2024, has improved performances for Napoli with back-to-back draws against Cagliari and Barcelona before coming from behind to hammer Sassuolo by six goals to one in midweek with Victor Osimhen scoring a hat-trick in that match.


Juventus were involved in the title in mid-January until the Old Lady suffered a 1-0 loss to Internazionale at San Siro in the Derby d’Italia and the Bianconeri have now drifted way behind the pace that Inter are setting at the top-of-the-table. They begin this weekend sitting 12 points behind Simone Inzaghi’s side now.

Under the management of Massimiliano Allegri, in his second stint in charge, Juventus come into this one on the back of a much-needed and desperate come from behind 3-2 defeat of Frosinone with a 95th minute winning goal scored by Daniele Rugani. Prior to that victory, Juve were winless in four matches in Serie A.



Napoli have a couple of availability issues for this weekend with midfielder Jens Cajuste absent due to injury with forward Cyril Ngonge also a doubt for the Neapolitans.

PREDICTED XI (4-3-3): Meret; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Ostigard, Rui; Anguissa, Lobotka, Traore; Politano, Osimhen, Kvaratskhelia

UNAVAILABLE: Cajuste (Injured)

QUESTIONABLE: Ngonge (Injured)


Paul Pogba had his doping ban confirmed in midweek with the Frenchman banned from football for the next four years so he is, of course, unavailable for the Old Lady this weekend.

PREDICTED XI (3-5-2): Szczesny; Gatti, Bremer, Rugani; Cambiaso, Alcaraz, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic; Vlahovic, Chiesa

UNAVAILABLE: Fagioli (Suspended), Pogba (Suspended), McKennie (Injured), Rabiot (Injured), Perin (Injured), De Sciglio (Injured)

QUESTIONABLE: Chiesa (Injured)


In the not too distant past, these sides have battled against each other in Serie A title races but neither are doing so this time around. Napoli are looking to get into a groove where they can maybe squeeze back into the top four race, whereas Juventus’ campaign is now simply about finishing as the ‘best of the rest’ above the likes of AC Milan with Inter running away with the title. Given the improvement from Napoli recently, as well as the fact they are at home against unconvincing opposition, backing the hosts looks the way to go for this one.
