Recent history favours Napoli v Juve

Darko Kovacevic was on the scoresheet and Edwin Van Der Sar in goal when Juventus last went to Napoli in Serie A and won.

It was a wet September 2000 night back then, a tie that the Old Lady triumphed in thanks to a trademark Alessandro Del Piero curler.

In the four top-flight games at the San Paolo since, Napoli have won all four…

The two teams meet at the Stadio San Paolo this evening in their re-arranged Week 11 tie which was originally postponed because of floods.

Napoli boss Walter Mazzarri has the upper hand in his personal battle with Juventus counterpart Antonio Conte too.

Mazzarri’s Napoli team beat Conte’s Atalanta side 2-0 in January 2010. Fabio Quagliarella and Michele Pazienza, who now both find themselves at Juve, scored the goals.

There have been 66 meetings at the San Paolo in Serie A. Napoli have 21 wins, Juventus 20 and 25 draws.  The Azzurri have 79 goals against the Old Lady’s 75.

The aggregate score of the last four Napoli-Juve games at the San Paolo in Serie A is Napoli 11 Juventus 3!
