Serie A action on Saturday as Napoli and Juve meet at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona – 6:00pm GMT.

This clash sees twelfth play fifth, as struggling Juve visit Stadio Diego Armando Maradona to face Napoli.

Napoli go into this meeting with six points secured

Following two straight wins for Napoli in their most recent games, they will be keen to continue that form going into this fixture.

With six points, they are established in fifth in the League having won two matches.

Napoli have won one game of their one League matches at home this season.

Napoli will have 9 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Good atacking and defensive team

Napoli have conceded one goal so far, so their defence can be considered to be strong. Napoli will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (4). This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Eljif Elmas (1), Fabian Ruiz (1), and Lorenzo Insigne (1).

Napoli are missing four players through injury or illness. This will affect Luciano Spalletti’s selection choices significantly.

It’s one point so far for Juventus this season, going into this match

Juve will be eager to return to some kind of winning form, having lost their last game to Empoli, which itself followed a draw to Udinese, this fixture could be the opportunity.

Juve will be hopeful of shaking off the poor form that has seen them lose one game this Serie A season. They currently stand twelfth in the League, with one point drawn one game and lost one game.

Playing away from home, Juve have drawn one game.

Winning this fixture will see Juventus on 4 points.

Injury and illness have depleted Massimiliano Allegri’s Juve and they will likely be missing four key personnel for Saturday’s match.

Napoli v Juventus – Head-to-Heads.

These two teams have met on 52 occasions, in which Juve have enjoyed 26 wins and 14 draws. Also, in the last 15 games between these two sides, the local team has never been able to get a victory. In their most recent meeting of this fixture was April 2021, when Juventus walked away as 2-1 winners. With both sides conceding goals in their most recent game together, the probability of both sides scoring on Saturday is 59.52%.

Napoli have a 43.29 percent probability of winning.
