✅ Here is the Preview NAPOLI vs JUVENTUS  for the Serie A Week 3 game on Saturday 11 September 2021 at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium in Napoli, Italy at 18:00.

In other seasons, we would have been talking about the start of a powerful Juventus. Things unexpectedly changing.  Juventus facing Napoli being down in the 12th position with just 1 point after being defeated last round by newly promoted Serie B team, Empoli at the Allianz Stadium.  Juventus objective to fight for the Scudetto seeming an uphill battle.  Making matters worst, Juventus are without the South American players after the international break not having enough time to recover.  Federico Chiesa also not available.   Moise Kean could make his comeback with Juve.

The balance of power. We might say Napoli are the favorites to win following their perfect start of the season winning all 2 games for 6 points.   Motivation high for Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti looking to win a third consecutive Serie A home victory against Juventus for the first time in a decade.  Victor Osimhen’s two game ban had been reduced to one game and Osimhen is expected to play.

Napoli and Juventus playing their 151st game in Serie A. It is the 76th edition in Napoli’s home.   Stats at home: Napoli 25 wins, 27 draws and Juventus 23 wins.   Napoli’s last home win against Juventus in Serie A was on February 13, 2021 – Napoli v Juventus 1-0. Napoli’s last draw at home against Juventus in Serie A was on April 2, 2017 – Napoli v Juventus 1-1. Napoli’s last home defeat to Juventus in Serie A was on March 3, 2019 – Napoli v Juventus 1-2.

Juventus have failed to win their opening two Serie A matches for only the third time in the last 52 years.   Luciano Spalletti and Massimiliano Allegri meet for the first time since the 1-1 draw between Inter (Spalletti) and Juve in April 2019.The defeat for Juventus will be a mighty slap.  Will Juve react and grab this away victory?
