Napoli vs Juventus - Competition: Italian Serie A

Napoli SSC recovered well from the home defeat to Fiorentina as they recorded a 4-2 triumph at Catania. They now sit ten points clear of Viola, although they do have some difficult fixtures ahead.
Benitez faces some selection issues as Valon Behrami and Dries Mertens face fitness tests, whilst Rafael Cabral and Christian Maggio are definitely out. Anyway he was able to rest a number of starters – including Gonzalo Higuaín – during their midweek win over Catania, ensuring that they will be as fresh as possible. Inler and Jorginho should play in midfield while Ghoulam is back after serving a suspension.
Juventus sit 14 points clear of second-placed Roma with eight games remaining, while Napoli are a further six points adrift. Antonio Conte's men are closing in on a third Scudetto in a row after extending their unbeaten run in the league to 22 matches with a 2-1 win over Parma on Wednesday - a game that also saw them set an Italian top-flight landmark with a 15th straight home win. Furthermore, Juventus are on a 7-match winning streak and they are undefeated in their last 22 games.
Carlos Tevez was the match’s hero. He scored 2 important goals but the Italian Serie A top scorer received his 5th yellow card and will serve a one-match suspension. Pablo Osvaldo expected to take his place up front alongside Fernando Llorente. The Bianconeri are monitoring Claudio Marchisio ahead of the game, as he continues to overcome a muscle strain. There will be no changes in defence, where Andrea Barzagli and Angelo Ogbonna are still out.
Juventus team have won seven consecutive matches in Serie A, conceding just two goals in the process but Napoli has a good record against the Old Lady at Stadio S.Paolo as they maintain an eight undefeated matches streak.
