It's time for the biggest rivalry matchup of Napoli's season. Juventus is struggling even more than Napoli have this season, so this represents a chance for Napoli to gain some confidence and get one over on those jerks from up north.

For Napoli, the lineup is as expected, including Jose Callejon starting over Dries Mertens. Juventus are running out of warm bodies in defense and midfield, though while most expected Max Allegri to switch to a 3-5-2 instead of his usual diamond -- the players he has left seem to suit that better -- Mad Max has stuck true to form, even if that means starting Simone Padoin at right back. Lorenzo Insigne should have all kinds of fun with that matchup. In attack, Alvaro Morata was only deemed healthy enough to sit on the bench, so Simone Zaza and Paulo Dybala start up top again.

Napoli: Reina; Hysaj, Albiol, Koulibaly, Ghoulam; Allan, Jorginho, Hamsik; Insigne, Higuaín, Callejon

Juventus: Buffon; Padoin, Bonucci, Chiellini, Evra; Pereyra, Lemina, Pogba; Hernanes; Zaza, Dybala
