NAP Vs JUV Dream 11 Prediction: Napoli Vs Juventus Best Dream 11 Team for Serie A 2019/20. Napoli get ready to face the might of a luscious Juventus outfit.
What was slated to be a riveting affair has seen all its shine being wrenched off it. With Napoli massively struggling in Serie A at the moment, a tie which would has traditionally been contested competitively and in feisty manner becomes a foregone conclusion with Juventus emerging as overwhelming favourites to win this season.
For Napoli, the flummoxed move of doing away with Ancelotti has been a massive mess up by the club. Ever since the Italian has left them, the club has gone on a wayward spiral to fall down as low as 13th position in the points tally with their 2-0 defeat to Fiorentina the last time around being their 4th defeat in their last five encounters.
Meanwhile, Juventus come into the day’s clash in completely opposing form with the side getting the better of AS Roma by 2-1 to make it five wins out of five. Now holding an outright lead atop of the points tally with Inter Milan further regressing the last time around, Juventus will be looking to further consolidate on their four point lead when they take to the middle for this one.
There is a clear winner emerging from this contest. Given Napoli’s flabbergasting precarious football and Juventus’ elevation towards the title, Juventus are the only winners from this encounter, a match they should end up rounding off with consummate ease.

Dream 11 Picks
David Ospina is by no means going to be merging from a cleansheet for this one but despite the narrative, we are going to be subjecting ourselves to his selection. It’s down to the saves the Napoli goal-keeper is capable of pulling off, ones he’ll be provided with ample chances of doing as Juventus send down a barrage of shots his way.
Juventus have been guilty of failing to come out with cleansheets with the side letting in atleast the one goal on every occasion but with just 19 goals allowed all season, it would be criminal of us to not repose faith in their backline for the day. Also, with Napoli having failed to have scored in their last two encounters, the likelihood of Juventus coming out with a much yearned for cleansheet .
Both Matthijs de Ligt and Alex Sandro are being picked up by us while from Napoli, his attacking eye for the goal sees us indulge in Elseid Hysaj.
While Napoli have immensely struggled this season, this might just be the encounter to spur them on their road towards recovery. The side are bound to be spruced and stoked by their ardent supporters who’ll be devoutly supporting them to pull off a stunning result against Juventus.
And with the side scoring the three goals when these two teams last met, we envision Napoli pouncing above heir weight in their attacking sorties today. It sees us go in with Jose Callejon and Fabian Ruiz from the side, two players more than capable of pulling off an imperious display in attack today.
Elsewhere, we are getting in an akin duo from Juventus as well with the myriad Miralem Pjanic and Rodrigo Bentacur being instilled in our side for the contest.
Cristiano Ronaldo just can’t stop scoring at the moment and when he’s in this touch, he become a player who automatically selects himself. He’s scored 16 times for the side this season, finally showing what he’s truly capable of to see him become our first pick.
Elsewhere, 6 goal man Higuain and with the five goals and 3 assists, Paolo Dybala were both viable options from Juventus. What edged us towards Dybala is the fact that he’s a part of his side’s playing 11 to see us rope him in.
From Napoli meanwhile, their leading goal scorer with the 7 goals, Arkadiusz Milik will come in ahead of Insigne who has the 3 goals and 4 assists.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Ronaldo is our team’s captain while Dybala is the vice-captain.
