JUV vs NAP Dream11 : Sarri takes on his old side as two stalwarts of Serie A take centrestage in the marquee league today
With Maurizio Sarri moving from Chelsea to Juventus, today’s narrative has increased in magnitude. This is no longer a clash between two challengers for the prestigious Serie A 2019-20 title but a clash which sees Sarri take on his old club with Juventus, his latest soiree into the footballing fraternity.
While Napoli had ardently supported Sarri across the course of the last season when he was plying his skill set with Chelsea, the Italian club and their supporters are bound to give Juventus a hostile reception today when they travel to the reigning champions for today’s momentous clash. Although Sarri’s participating is in doubt for this as he continues to recover from a severe illness, Napoli are bound to make their displeasure apparent at the move.
It’s what increases the intrigue of this clash immensely, a fixture which already holds the staunch stature of one of the most revered clashes in Serie A. Not only are these two sides firm favourites to land the coveted trophy but indulge in an attacking gameplan of football, one which is set to immerse us in a scrumptious brand of football.
Both the sides make an advent into today’s clash having tasted success in their league openers. While things were relative simple for Juventus who pulled through a 1-0 win over Parma, Napoli were engaged in a seven goal thriller with Fiorentina, one which saw them ultimately prevail 4-3 with their relentless attack pulverising Fiorentina’s defence to get the vital additional goal.
JUV vs NAP Match Prediction
With Juventus having transitioned their style of football this season, seeing Sarri’s method of play come into the side and with the players at their disposal to carry out that task, expect the hosts to come hot out of the blocks in this one. Napoli showed the last time around that for all their attacking exuberance, the side are prone to collapsing at the back, an impasse which Juventus are bound to capitalise on today and seal the three points in their favour.

JUV vs NAP Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Although Napoli are going to be without a cleansheet today, their goal-keeper Alex Meret is the choice we have opted for. There isn’t any surety of Juventus stalling their unforgiving opponents either and with a cleansheet looking unlikely today, our man between the sticks was someone who is going to rope in a plethora of saves for us.
JUV vs NAP Dream11 Defenders
If any side is going to have the smallest of chance of keeping a cleansheet in this fixture, it’s going to be Juventus with the side known for curtailing their opponents. What picking up both their fullbacks, Alex Sandro and Mattia de Sciglio offers us is two players who don’t need to rely on shut outs to garner in points.
Both love marauding their way forward the pitch and with Sarri wanting his fullbacks to provide persistent support to his wide attacking players, the two can easily get a goal or assist in between them today. Elsewhere from the visitors we have decided to go ahead with Giovanni di Lorenzo.
JUV vs NAP Dream11 Midfielders
CDM Piotr Zielinski and CAM Fabian Ruiz both come in from the visiting side for this clash as we look to seamlessly blend in attack and defence from the side for this clash. Meanwhile we have gone in with Douglas Costa and Miralem Pjanic as our picks from the home side as we opt for midfielders in this facet, the two from either side.
JUV vs NAP Dream11 Strikers
Cristiano Ronaldo could end u snaring goals in this clash given how paper thin and vulnerable Napoli looked in the previous encounter and he’s our first pick over here. We have also opted for Gonzalo Higuain from the side while Dries Mertens comes in from Napoli after scoring twice in the side’s previous clash.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Ronaldo is our captain for this fixture while we have opted for Mertens as our vice-captain.
