Juventus x Napoli
With 14 straight victories in the league, Juventus have moved eight points clear of Fiorentina in third. Napoli have needed eight consecutive victories to keep ahead of Juventus. To retain top spot, they need only to avoid defeat, but going to the Juventus Stadium with a plan to keep the game in the balance is not an option for a team as ambitious as Sarri's. The hype for the game is so high that during the week, it was debated whether a foreign referee should officiate, which only increased after 2014 World Cup final referee Nicola Rizzoli was dropped through injury. Form and morale do not help those hoping to predict the score, nor do the fixture lists as both managers cannot afford to rotate to spare some players for upcoming European fixtures. Juventus have the know-how that comes from winning Serie A in recent years on their side and the superior experience in this type of game. Napoli will be the more determinded to secure victory, while the two-point advantage at the top of the table means they could be under less pressure than their rivals should the game remain balanced towards the end.
