Juventus could temporarily move top of Serie A should they defeat defending champions Napoli on Friday evening.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side - free of continental football - have made a superb start to the domestic season, with their last and only defeat coming in late September. Since then, Juve have gone eight games unbeaten, including important away wins against Milan and Fiorentina, to maintain the pressure on Inter at the top of the table.

Napoli, meanwhile, have made a sluggish start to the defence of their title, with manager Rudi Garcia sacked in mid-November. His replacement, former Watford boss Walter Mazzari has since returned to the Napoli dugout for his second stint in charge of the club but has lost his last two games, including a comprehensive 3-0 home drubbing against Inter last weekend.

Team news

Juventus have no fresh injury concerns after their 2-1 win against Monza. Danilo returned to the squad after his layoff and could be in line for a start against Napoli but Allegri’s side will still be without Mattia De Sciglio, Timothy Weah, Paul Pogba and Nicolo Fagioli.

Napoli, meanwhile, will be hoping to welcome Piotr Zielinksi back to the starting XI after he limped off against Real Madrid in the Champions League last week. Elsewhere, full-backs Mathias Olivera and Mario Rui will be unavailable, as is Alessandro Zanioli.
