Juventus vs Napoli: Preview, kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online

Napoli may have suffered Champions League heartbreak but they are still on the cusp of winning Serie A. Victory away at Juventus would take them a step closer.

Italian giants Juventus host Serie A leaders Napoli on Matchday 31 at the Allianz Stadium on Sunday evening as the Partenopei get closer to sealing their first scudetto since 1989/90.

Despite drawing 0-0 to Hellas Verona in the previous round, the Neapolitans still have a 14-point lead over Lazio in second place. Meanwhile, La Vecchia Signora are equal seventh with Bologna albeit with a points deduction and they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Sassuolo in their latest league fixture.

The last time when these two clubs played each other was a forgetful experience for Juventus as they suffered a 5-1 thrashing against Napoli in Naples. They will be hoping that playing in Turin in front of their home fans will give them a boost in confidence as they try to secure a place in Europe for 2023/24.
