The players of the Turin team await the final decision of the league.
At this moment the Juventus footballers are on the field, waiting for the visiting team.
The main referee, appointed for this unusual night at Juventus Stadium, is Daniele Doveri.
The Neapolitan team defeated Juventus (2-1) in their last match, corresponding to matchday 21 of the last league. That meeting snapped a streak of three consecutive victories for Vecchia Signora against Napoli.
Anyway, complying with the stipulations of the calendar, Juventus announces the eleven that will take the field: Szczesny – Danilo, Bonucci, Chiellini – Kulusevski, Bentancur, Arthur, Cuadrado – Ramsey – Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Genoa, the last rival of Naples, already registers an outbreak of more than 20 positives of COVID-19 between staff and staff. These began to be known after 6-0 last Sunday, which set off the alarms in the Neapolitan team. The tests carried out so far have yielded the positives of Zielinski and Elmas.
The match between Juventus and Napoli came after a promising start for Gennaro Gattuso's team, with two victories in two games, beating Genoa (6-0) last matchday. Those led by Andrea Pirlo accumulate four points out of six, after having drawn (2-2) against Roma.
Everything seems to indicate that the Turin team will take the three points without contesting the match. The health authorities of Naples did not allow the departure of the Parthenopean team to Turin, although the league authorities ratified the commitment. That is why the Bianconeri have decided to jump onto the Juventus Stadium pitch.
Good evening and welcome to the Juventus-Napoli broadcast, for the third day of the Italian Seria A!
