Juventus vs Napoli: Where to watch early Scudetto showdown on August 31, 2019

August 30, 2019 By Michelle Bonsu
It's a titanic clash as Juventus take on Napoli in an early Scudetto showdown on Saturday. Live Soccer TV's match preview provides match facts, team news, and global broadcast listings for Juventus vs. Napoli.

Preview: Juventus vs Napoli

Both Juventus and Napoli come into this game having won their respective fixtures, but neither side looked particularly convincing. The Bianconeri had to work a lot harder than expected to grind out a gritty 1-0 victory over a stubborn Parma side who were hoping to snatch a point, but Giorgio Chiellini's goal was enough to give the reigning Scudetto champions all three points on opening day.

Meanwhile, the Partenopei really had to battle against a Fiorentina side who kept trying to fight their way back into the game; the Viola, clearly inspired by playing in front of their home fans were a totally different team than the one who were nearly relegated last season. However, Carlo Ancelotti's men managed to just do enough to secure a hard-fought 4-3 victory in a highly entertaining game that ended up being the highest-scoring clash of matchday one.

Although this game is coming early on, it's already been billed as a Scudetto-decider given that Napoli are determined to position themselves as one of Juve's challengers for the league title. With Sarri now on the bench for the Bianconeri, many of Napoli's players will be even more motivated to get one over on the coach whom they worked under for several seasons.

That being said, Sarri is currently suffering from pneumonia and may not actually be on the bench for this fixture. If he doesn't recover in time, his assistant, Giovanni Martusciello could take charge of the team once again like he did on opening day against Parma.

Team news: Juventus vs Napoli

Juventus: The hosts have been recently dealt a major blow ahead of this match. Skipper Giorgio Chiellini is out due to a knee injury that now will require surgery. In addition, they're already without backup goalkeeper Mattia Perin as a result of a shoulder problem as well as new midfield signing Aaron Ramsey, with the Welsh international struggling with a back issue, but Chiellini's injury couldn't come at a worse time for Sarri's side.

That means that potentially, mega-money signing Matthijs de Ligt could potentially make his debut after being left on the bench for Juve's match against Parma last weekend.

Napoli: As for the visitors, new signing Hirving Lozano has now recovered from some injury issues that kept him from linking up with his teammates on matchday one. However, despite starting training with the squad, he's not expected to be involved in the starting XI in this match. Arkadiusz Milik is another player who is a huge doubt for this match due to musuclar issues.
