The complexion of the Serie A title race could change completely on Friday night as Juventus attempt to cut the gap to Napoli.

Napoli host Juventus at the Stadio Diego Maradona on Friday evening in this highly-anticipated top of the table clash on Serie A Matchday 18.

The Partenopei are on top of the league table with 44 points after 17 games and come into this match on the back of a 2-0 victory away to Sampdoria. Meanwhile, the Bianconeri are seven points behind in second place and they also won their latest Serie A game against Udinese.

Prior to the victory against the Blucerchiati, Napoli had lost their first league fixture of the year to Inter, and Juventus will be hoping for a further slip-up from the Partenopei, potentially cutting the deficit to four points with a win in Naples.
