Juventus will face with their biggest rivals in title race in this campaign Napoli tonight and this match can end title race, not literally but if Jventus wins they will make quiet big difference. At this moment Juventus are at top of the table with four points more than Napoli, they manage to overtake opponents after Napoli had few failures, anyway Juventus must go for a victory and they are for sure capable to win tonight at home field.
In last round they failed to celebrate on the road against Crotone, although took a lead and were better side opponents scored an equalizer and Juventus just couldn't take the lead again, before that they smashed Sampdoria at this field while in Champions league played impressive against Real Madrid and managed to score three goals without conceding until 90th minute, when it seemed that game will go to extra time they conceded a goal from penalty and were eliminated.
Once again they failed in Champions league but domestic competitions are still ongoing, in Cup will have a great chance to win the trophy while if continue in same manner and achieve positive outcome tonight they will be very close to win the 7th consecutive title in Serie A, at this moment i believe that hosts can beat Napoli. Defender De Sciglio (11/1) and midfielder Sturaro (11/0) are both injured and will miss this duel.
Napoli meanwhile weren't so successful in Champions league and after ending at third position in group stage were playing in Europa league knockout stage but were eliminated in first round by German Leipzig, from Cup were eliminated in first game in this year by Atalanta and they remained involved only in battle for Serie A, however they dropped leading position and here simple can't afford defeat, it would be the end.
Napoli are in decent form, they are coming to this match after victory over Udinese at home, they were accurate there and scored four goals but also showed weaknesses in defense and conceded two, in last six rounds they got three draws and that was main reason for dropping leading position, this is one of the most important games in this campaign and defeat is not an option, they are one of rare teams in Italy which can confront to Juventus but it will be extremely difficult to earn points.
In previous six matches against hosts they celebrated only once, that happened in last season in Cup but despite won there still were eliminated since in first leg were defeated with two goals margin, last time they faced in December and at home were defeated with narrow result, it will be very hard to avoid that tonight. Only defender Ghoulam (11/0) won't play for Napoli here due to an injury.
Juventus are trying to continue their domination in Serie A and in case of victory they would be pretty safe at top of the table, however strong opponents are in front of them and this will for sure be a great clash, Napoli are coming here highly motivated but hosts are experienced and strong side, at this stadium i'm quiet sure that they will collect maybe crucial three points.
