Serie A leaders Juventus face a struggling Napoli side in the 21st Matchday of the 2019-20 campaign.

Napoli

Napoli will be looking to put an end to their poor Serie A form when they host reigning champions Juventus at the San Paolo Stadium.

The Sky Blues have won just one of the five league games under Gennaro Gattuso, losing the other four – including the last three in a row.

Their last Serie A win at the San Paolo Stadium came on October 19 last year against Verona.

Since then, last season’s runners up suffered two draws and four defeats in the league at home, but won the last game they’ve hosted – beating Lazio 1-0, in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals last Tuesday.

Juventus

Juventus travel to Naples with the intention to maintain their perfect record in 2020.

The Bianconeri have won all five games across all competitions in the new year, netting 15 goals in the process – an average of 3 per game.

They won the reverse fixture with Napoli, beating the Gli Azzurri 4-3 in a thrilling encounter which saw Juventus throw away a 3-0 lead, before winning the game thanks to a Kalidou Koulibaly injury-time own goal.

Cristiano Ronaldo is back at his best again, having scored seven goals in four games in 2020.

The Portuguese striker broke the deadlock in Juventus’ 3-1 win against Roma back on Wednesday, helping the Bianconeri to book their place in the Coppa Italia semi-finals.
