1) Juventus are yet to taste defeat this season in Serie A, they have cent percent record, bagging the maximum points possible from the 5 games played.
2) Juventus have never dropped points against Napoli at the Allianz Stadium
3) Napoli were in pole position to win the Serie A title last season by winning 10 matches in a row but stumbling blocks at the end of the season against AS Roma, Inter, Sassuolo and AC Milan allowed the Bianconeri’s to sneak in their seventh consecutive championship.
4) Juventus have already won seven successive Italian titles and having invested in Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo over the summer they intend to cling to their eight successive title as well.
5) AS Roma vs Lazio or commonly known as Derby di Roma is considered as the most fiercest intra-city derby in Serie A. Lazio holds the record for the most consecutive derby wins in single season, winning 4 derbies during the 1997-98 season ( 2 in Serie A and 2 in Copa Italia quarter-finals.)
6) AS Roma and Lazio both come into this match with contradicting form. AS Roma have not won any of their last 5 games, losing four and drawing one while, Lazio have won last 4 of their 5 games coming into this tie.
7) What makes the rivalry between AS Roma and Lazio interesting is that both these teams share the same home ground, Stadio Olimpico.
