It’s become the biggest game in Serie A all of sudden after Juventus’ rise up the table from the ruins just as Napoli lost to Inter Milan nine days ago and now see the Old Lady right behind them in the table.
It looked for some time that Napoli would run away with the league, and while they remain the clear favourites to get the Scudetto they have lost their unbeaten record after a 1-0 loss to Inter Milan at the San Siro.
Juventus are now seven points behind the league leaders as they also sit ahead of the champions AC Milan on goals difference - Juventus have the best defensive record across Europe’s top five divisions with just seven goals let in from 17 games.
Max Allegri’s men have managed to beat Cremonese 1-0 away from home and Udinese 1-0 at the Allianz in their two games since competitive action in Italy returned.
As for Napoli, they have swiftly moved on from their loss to Inter with a 2-0 win over Sampdoria thanks to a goal from Victor Osimhen and a penalty from Elf Elmas.
It’ set to be the most important game of Serie A on Friday night, and we’re in for a treat at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.
