Napoli will be hoping to take advantage of Juventus‘ recent struggles when they host Massimiliano Allegri’s Bianconeri at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in Serie A on Saturday evening.
The Partenopei have taken maximum points from their opening two games this season without yet convincing, but Juventus have just one point from six on offer so far.
Juventus will be without their South American players after yet more COVID-19 controversy but could have Weston McKennie starting despite his misbehaviour on international duty, again breaching protocol.
