Pre match: Juventus vs Napoli

Juventus fresh off a well deserved 2-2 draw vs Roma will face Napoli at the Allianz stadium on Sunday.

The Old Lady have picked up four points from their first two league games of the 2020-21 season, while Napoli have collected six from an available six, impressing in wins over Parma and Genoa.

Two goals from French midfielder Jordan Veretout for Roma was cancelled out by a brace from Juventus' Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. Juventus had midfielder Adrien Rabiot sent off in the second half.

Napoli, on the other hand, thrashed Genoa 6-0 last Sunday at the Stadio San Paolo. A brace from Mexican forward Hirving Lozano and goals from midfielder Piotr Zielinski, Dries Mertens, North Macedonia international Elif Elmas and Matteo Politano sealed the decisive victory for Gennaro Gattuso's men.


Juventus have begun a new era under manager Andrea Pirlo, and have brought in the likes of Weston McKennie and Alvaro Morata. It is still early days, but Juventus are the favourites to win another league title, considering they have players like Paulo Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo in the squad.

Juventus have a good squad and should be able to get a result out of this game, but Napoli is full of confidence at the moment and will not make it easy for The Old Lady of Italian football.
