Luciano Spalletti’s Napoli beat Sampdoria 2-0 with goals scored by Victor Osimhen and Elif Elmas on penalty on the following day.

Juventus will welcome back Gleison Bremer who did not appear for the Udinese game as a precaution.


Dusan Vlahovic, Paul Pogba, Leonardo Bonucci, and Juan Cuadrado and Mattia De Sciglio are all out.

For Napolli, there are no new injury concerns for Spalletti to worry about, so the only changes to his Napoli side could all be tactical.
