KEY STATS | Napoli v Juventus

Napoli take on Juventus later today in a huge game which will see the Serie A league leaders lock horns with the second placed side. 

While, on the paper, things might be heavily on Napoli’s side, Juve’s recent form has been quite impressive. They haven’t lost in eight Serie A games in a row and they have all been cleansheets and the run has included wins over Lazio and Inter as well. 

Napoli did lose to Inter but they recovered with a win over Sampdoria at the weekend and there is a seven point gap between them and the Old Lady.

Here are some key stats, heading into the game at the Maradona:

  •  If Juventus win the game, it will be their ninth consecutive Serie A win and it will be the second time that they’ve achieved that, with Allegri’s side having reached that feat back in 2018.
  • Napoli were unbeaten against Juventus throughout last season, as they beat them at the Maradona and then were held to a 1-1 draw.
  • No Serie A team has scored more goals in the division than Napoli (39)
  • No Serie A team has scored more goals in stoppage time this season than Juventus (4)
  • Napoli have scored the highest number of goals in the second half of games in Serie A so far in the campaign (17)
