The team news has been announced and we’ll start with the home side.

Juve bounced back from their shocking defeat at the hands of Sampdoria last week by easing past Crotone on home soil. Massimiliano Allegri’s men have not been at their imperious best this season, but know that a victory tonight will pull them back into a strong position in the title race.

Napoli have the chance to strengthen their claim to break Juventus’ stranglehold of Serie A by pulling seven points clear of I Bianconeri in the table. Gli Azzurri have enjoyed an outstanding start to the season and have dropped just four points this term. Maurizio Sarri’s men have been clinical in their last two matches to see off Milan and Udinese, but will need their best effort this evening.

Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the Serie A clash between Napoli and Juventus at the Stadio San Paolo.
