The Old Lady welcome Napoli to the Allianz Stadium on Wednesday for this Serie A match. This felt like the match that would never happen after 2 postponements and a battle in the courts to overturn Lega Serie A’s decision to award it as a 3-0 win to Juventus. These sides were originally due to meet in the 3rd week of the season at the start of October. However, Napoli were ordered not to travel to Turin by the health authorities due to an outbreak of COVID-19 in their camp. After a long legal battle, the courts overturned the decision to award the match to Juve and it was rescheduled instead for 17 March 2021.
A jam-packed weekend of Serie A action on Paramount+ will see Napoli and Juventus square off on Saturday as part of Matchday 3. Napoli are 2-0-0 to start the season and looking sharp with four goals in two games, while Juventus are struggling to find stability with a 0-1-1 record, sitting in 12th place. Juventus are averaging just a goal per game, and that’s a number that could portend trouble as they struggle with the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.
The biggest game of this weekend takes place at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, where Napoli will host Juventus in a game that has been filled with bad blood of late. The fixture has always been a ‘North v South’ rivalry, but Gonzalo Higuain’s 2016 move from Campania to Turin only made things more intense.
There was another chapter written in its history last season when Napoli were prohibited from travelling to Turin by their local health authority, only for Lega Serie A to insist that their game at Juventus would go ahead.
This then led to Juventus having to go to the stadium and wait for Napoli to arrive, knowing that they were still down south and would not be leaving Naples. That saw the Partenopei deducted a point and Juventus handed a 3-0 walkover, only for the decision to eventually be overturned in the courts.
The visitors, meanwhile, will look to grab a rare league double over the Bianconeri after securing a 1-0 home win in February’s reverse fixture. Juventus have now gone two games without a win after their shock loss to Benevento was followed by a 2-2 draw against Torino on Saturday. Antonio Sanabria scored in both halves to cancel out Federico Chiesa’s opener and give Toro a 2-1 lead. However, a 79th-minute strike from Cristiano Ronaldo restored parity for the Old Lady. Juventus have now dropped to fourth in the Serie A table, 12 points behind league leaders Inter Milan. A defeat on Wednesday could see them slip into the Europa League spots.
This season their second Serie A meeting of the season — which is technically the first, but just go with me here — does have plenty on the line. It’s just not what we thought it might come the beginning of the 2020-21 season. Over the course of the last few years, the Juventus-Napoli matchup has usually come with some sort of Scudetto ramifications attached to things. Juve would usually be in first place, with Napoli either trailing behind in second or third and there’d be plenty of riding on the two rivals playing one another no matter who the two manages have been.
