Juventus vs Napoli Match Analysis and Prediction

After their first meeting of the season got postponed amid controversial circumstances, newly found rivals Juventus will take on Napoli. The match schedules for Wednesday at Allianz Arena, with kickoff at 8:45 pm.

Juventus will have been gearing up for a Champions League quarter-finals tie, but they fell out on home goals against Porto. They head into the clash on the back of Juve’s Supercoppa Italiana triumph; the Partenopei picked up a 1-0 home win back in February. The side locked together on points while fighting for a spot in the Champions League.

Serie A heavyweights convene for the third time this term. The first encounter between the two sides was postponed when Napoli failed to turn up when Neapolitan health authorities quarantined the squad.

The opponents faced a rising case of rivalry that dates back to the days of Diego Maradona. The rivalry sets to come back alive, with potential consequences coming with their bid for a Champions League spot.

Juventus come into the game in a period of underwhelming form with struggling coach Andre Pirlo. However, the Binaconerri battled to salvage a 2-2 draw at the weekend. There continues to be a growing question over the future of Pirlo with his maestro days in the dugout.

In preparation for their long-anticipated comeback to Turin, Napoli came through a second-half scare with their dramatic 4-3 win over relegation-haunted Crotone on Saturday.
