Juventus host Napoli in an exciting summit in the Italian League

Juventus will host its Napoli counterpart at 10:15 pm today, Thursday, in the match between the two teams at the “Allianz Stadium”, in the top of the 20th round of the Italian League competitions.

Juventus is seeking to get out of the cycle of disappointing results, and reach the golden square in the Italian league standings, knowing that it is currently ranked fifth with 31 points, 4 points behind the fourth place that qualifies for the Champions League.

As for Napoli, it is third in the Italian league table with 39 points, 7 points behind leaders Inter Milan.

Juventus had a poor start to the new season in the league, but they found their way back in recent weeks, by achieving a number of victories.

On the contrary, Napoli had a strong start to this season, but it began to lose points in the last rounds. Since its victory over Lazio in November, it has lost 3 out of 5 matches.

Italian reports revealed that Napoli club president, Aurelio De Laurentiis, had called for the postponement of his team’s match against Juventus, due to the recent increase in the number of people infected with the Corona virus.

According to the Italian newspaper, “Il Mattino”, De Laurentiis is very angry and concerned about his team’s trip to Turin, especially in light of the multiple infections of the Corona virus between the players of the two teams in recent days.

She added that Napoli had reported its concern to the Prevention Department of the local authorities in Naples, which is the same thing that prevented the team from traveling to Turin in 2020 and caused the team to enter a legal battle after that.
