Juventus will bid to move top of Serie A on Friday evening with a victory against reigning champions Napoli, who have struggled in their title defence.
The Old Lady are second in the standings, two points behind Inter Milan, who host Udinese on Saturday, while Napoli occupy fifth place but find themselves 11 points off the pace.
Juventus to win - 7/5
Juventus have shown they are serious title contenders this season and they can enhance their Serie A claims with a victory over defending champions Napoli.
The Old Lady have made the Allianz Stadium a fortress and their only dropped points on home turf came against Bologna and Inter, who both left with a share of the spoils.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side have been built on a strong defence and they have conceded only seven goals in the league, the second-best record in the division.
Juve are bang in form and they play host to a Napoli side that are out of touch right now, with just one win recorded from their last five matches across all competitions.
The Partenopei have been better on their travels, losing just one of their 10 games, but they may find it difficult to get past a Juve team on the up.
Jens Cajuste to be booked - SP
Napoli lost 3-0 at home to Inter last time out, their second defeat in a row, and head coach Walter Mazzarri is expected to tweak his starting XI.
This could present a rare starting opportunity for midfielder Jens Cajuste, who has appeared 11 times in Serie A this season, but only two of those have been from the start.
A 20-time capped Sweden international, the 24-year-old is not one to shy away from a challenge and he has been booked a leading four times for Napoli this season.
Cajuste will be eager to make an impression, whether that is from the start or off the bench, and he could end up falling foul of the referee for the fifth time.
Defender Mattia De Sciglio is still sidelined with a long-term knee injury and is not expected back until the New Year, while Timothy Weah is expected to miss out again due to a muscle issue that has kept him out since the end of October.
Mario Rui is sidelined with a hamstring injury that is set to keep him out for another two weeks, while fellow left-back Mathias Olivera is out with a knee problem that will see him out of action until January.
Right-back Alessandro Zanoli is also ruled out because of a back issue.
Juve are unbeaten in their seven home assignments this season, winning five and drawing two.
The Old Lady are on a nine-game unbeaten streak, with their only loss of the campaign coming in a 4-2 defeat at Sassuolo on 23rd September.
Napoli have lost their last two matches across all competitions and have tasted success just once from their last five fixtures.
The reigning Serie A champions are unbeaten in the last four meetings against Juventus, who last beat the Naples outfit in April 2021.
