In the Italian Serie A, Napoli will host Juventus at the San Paolo Stadium in Naples. 

Napoli have struggled this season and they are currently 11th on the ladder with 24 points from their 20 games. It has been an extremely tough few months for Napoli as they have lost 4 out of their last 5 games. In their previous Serie A fixture, Napoli were defeated 2-0 at home by Fiorentina. It was an extremely poor match for Napoli as they had 67% of the possession but they failed to score and conceded twice. This is expected to be an extremely tough match for Napoli as they are playing against the top team in Italy. 

On the other side of the coin, Juventus have been outstanding over the past few weeks. Cristiano Ronaldo is in outstanding touch and the superstar striker has led the team well in recent weeks. Juventus played midweek in the Coppa Italia where they defeated Juventus 3-1 at home. Juventus were dominant as they had 53% of the possession and had 13 shots. Rodrigo Bentancur, Cristiano Ronaldo and Leonardo Bonucci were the players who scored for Juventus during the win. Juventus have looked in outstanding touch and I see them being well placed for this match. 

Juventus and Napoli played each other earlier in the season. The match was played in Turin where Juventus won 4-3. Cristiano Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuain were both very impressive for Juventus. 

Looking at this fixture, I am going to pick Juventus to win this match. Napoli have been extremely poor over the past few months and the team looks extremely low on confidence. Juventus have been playing well and they are being well led by Cristiano Ronaldo. Even with this match being played in Naples, I see Juventus being too strong for Napoli. 

Pick:
Juventus
