Juventus vs. Napoli: Supercoppa lineups, how to watch, and match thread

New, comments

Both sides are using a nearly full-strength lineup for the match in Qatar.

Hello, Napoli fans, calcio fans, fans of SuperCoppa matches being played in winter just to get some cash, or people that are simply bored waiting for their jobs to take a break for the holidays. This game in Qatar should be a perfect distraction.

And if you're a huge fan of Walter Gargano being paired with David López while Jorginho wonders just what sort of blackmail the Uruguayan has on Rafa Benítez, this match will entice and entrance. It will also give you the chance to see whether Jonathan de Guzmán can fill in for Dries Mertens on the left, while José Callejón continues to run himself ragged on the right and a possibly-injured Marek Hamšík is used centrally.

Juventus, too, are starting a pretty much full-strength lineup, so it seems the sides are taking what might well be a fake trophy and trying to turn it into something serious.

Merry Christmas!
