The Serie A is back in action with another round of matches this week as Napoli lock horns with Massimiliano Allegri’s Juventus side in an important clash at the Allianz Stadium on Friday.
Juventus and Napoli (commonly referred to as SSC Napoli) meet again 7 months after the Serie A match which Napoli won 0-1. Juventus are approaching this clash after a victory over Monza in Serie A last Saturday extending their unbeaten streak to 17 matches, however, one part of Juventus has trailed behind in terms of reliability—defence: they have been conceding goals for 3 consecutive matches now.
Napoli, on the other hand, are preparing for the match after 2 defeats in a row from Inter Milan and Real Madrid. They’re going to need to sort out the problems in the back first to improve the results as they have been conceding goals for 5 consecutive matches now.
Juventus have won Monza in their previous match while Napoli are on a losing streak – they have lost to Inter Milan and Real Madrid in their previous 2 matches. Overall, Juventus have won 12 of their last 19 matches, losing 2 and drawing 5, while Napoli have won 10 of their last 19 matches, losing 5 and drawing 4.
