They are W2 D3 in their last five played now and each of those draws in that sequence were 0-0 scorelines. They have produced a fantastic home record of an unbeaten W10 D3 this season. They have been rock solid in defence as they have shipped only 7 goals in their 13 home fixture. They have taken a clean sheet in 62% of their home fixtures this season.

Napoli have not conceded in any of their last five played now in Serie A. They have scored an average of two goals per game this season. When they met Juventus earlier this season they just couldn’t cope and lost 3-1 in Turin. While a victory here won’t exactly harm Juventus in terms of the title, it will strengthen Napoli’s shot at a second place finish in the league. Both teams have scored in just 38% of Napoli’s home games. Napoli have scored the first goal in all but four of their home fixtures this season. Juventus are the only ones who beat them in home form and defensive record this season.
