Juventus vs Napoli: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time and where to watch. Juventus will welcome reigning champions Napoli to Turin on Friday night for a heavyweight clash, hoping to temporarily climb to the top of the Serie A table.
How to watch the Serie A match between Juventus and Napoli, as well as kick-off time and team news.
With no European football to deal with, Juventus have gone all-in on reclaiming the Scudetto after a three-season drought this term. Massimiliano Allegri's side are playing a far from entertaining but certainly effective brand of football.
The Old Lady sits second in the Serie A table with 10 wins from 14 games as they trail leaders Inter by just two points in the standings, so victory in Turin would take them above their old foes and back to the summit.
Napoli's Scudetto defence hasn’t gone as planned, with the Naples-based outfit already onto their second boss since Luciano Spalletti resigned following their title-winning campaign. The Partenopei have lost three of their last four games entering Friday night's match, with Inter Milan emerging as 3-0 victors in Naples last weekend.
Here, GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch, including TV channel, streaming details and more.
Juventus vs Napoli kick-off time
Date: Friday, December 8, 2023
Kick-off time: 7:45pm GMT
Venue: Allianz Stadium
Location: Turin, Italy
The Serie A match between Juventus and Napoli will be played at Allianz Stadium in Turin, Italy. It will kick off at 7:45pm GMT on Friday, December 8, 2023, in the United Kingdom (UK).
Injury problems at right-back for Juve regarding Danilo (thigh) and Mattia De Sciglio (knee) means Andrea Cambiaso is set to continue there.
USMNT midfielder Weston McKennie's fortunes have turned around since he returned to the club from Premier League side Leeds United, having played in all 14 of Juventus' league games. However, fellow compatriot and right wing-back Timothy Weah is still out with a hamstring injury and it is unclear when he will return to action.
Given the suspensions to Paul Pogba and Nicolo Fagioli in midfield, the return of Nicolussi Caviglia is perfectly timed, and he could see his game time greatly increased over the next few months as a cover option to Manuel Locatelli following his decent showing against Monza.
Mathias Olivera (knee) has joined fellow left-back Mario Rui (adductor) on the sidelines due to injury, and with no other natural full-back in the squad, head coach Walter Mazzarri could call upon Natan to fill in once again.
While attacking talisman Victor Osimhen might have failed to make the desired impact on his first start since returning from his injury issue last month, the Nigerian ace will certainly have a leading role to play alongside Georgian livewire Khvicha Kvaratskhelia in Turin.
Juventus has not lost a Serie A match since September 23rd, a trend which continued in their latest game on Friday. They narrowly escaped with a victory as the team sidled past Monza 2-1. The last goal Juventus scored came from Federico Gatti in minute 90.
Meanwhile, Napoli didn't get the result they wanted in their first match with Inter on Sunday. They ended up on the wrong side of a bruising 3-0 walloping at the hands of Inter.
Juventus have no fresh injury concerns after their 2-1 win against Monza. Danilo returned to the squad after his layoff and could be in line for a start against Napoli but Allegri’s side will still be without Mattia De Sciglio, Timothy Weah, Paul Pogba and Nicolo Fagioli.
Napoli, meanwhile, will be hoping to welcome Piotr Zielinksi back to the starting XI after he limped off against Real Madrid in the Champions League last week. Elsewhere, full-backs Mathias Olivera and Mario Rui will be unavailable, as is Alessandro Zanioli.
Napoli has held the upper hand in this contest in recent years, but a sudden slump has raised all kinds of questions regarding the club’s quality in comparison with recent years.
The last time Juve managed to beat the Neapolitans was back in April 2021, since which Napoli has embarked upon a four-match undefeated run in the fixture, winning three of those.
Juventus are currently second in the division, only to Inter Milan who lead by two points. Massimiliano Allegri's side have won their last nine Serie A games. They have lost just once this season which came against Sassuolo back in September.
Napoli's last game was a 3-0 defeat to Inter, Walter Mazzarri's side have won just once in their last five games in all competitions. They have dropped to fifth place in Serie A.
From a USMNT perspective, Weston McKennie has now played in all 14 of Juventus' league games. The midfielder's fortunes have turned around since he returned to the club from Premier League side Leeds United. However, Timothy Weah is still out with a hamstring injury and it is unclear when he will return to action.
