Napoli have a 100% record after two matches and will be looking to take advantage of an out of form Juventus this weekend.

Juventus, without Cristiano Ronaldo, have failed to win either of their two opening fixtures and are desperate to get their season on track with a positive result.

The hosts however have a chance to go top of the embryonic table if they manage to win against Max Allegri’s side.
