Serie A Week 25 Preview (Powered by @matthewdoyle95)

Juventus vs Napoli:
On Saturday night one of the biggest games in Serie A this season takes place at the Juventus stadium when 2nd place Juventus take on 1st place Napoli. Napoli won the reverse fixture in September 2-1 and a win on Saturday would take the Partenopei 5 points clear at the top of Serie A. Juventus have been on a remarkable run recently winning their last 14 Serie A games in a row. Napoli will have to be wary of Juventus’s young Argentinean forward Paulo Dybala who has scored 13 goals and has 8 assists in Serie A this season, the forward came to Juventus with a big future ahead of him after securing a move from Palermo in the summer. Napoli have won their last 4 away games and the form of their Argentine forward Gonzalo Higuain has been nothing short of sensational, the striker has scored 24 goals in 24 Serie A games and for Juventus to get anything from the game on Saturday they must find a way to shackle the Napoli talisman. One thing is for sure though, it will be a very passionate game in Turin.

Fiorentina vs Inter:
Fiorentina host Inter Milan on Sunday night in a game that will have a big say in who gets a Champions League place. Fiorentina are unbeaten in their last 4 Serie A games and sit in 3rd place in the Serie A table, Fiorentina may also have a psychological edge over Inter Milan after beating the Milan based club 4-1 at the Giuseppe Meazza earlier in the season, a game in which Kalinic scored a hat-trick. Inter Milan have been in very poor form recently in the league with the Nerazzurri only winning 1 of their last 5 Serie A games to effectively end their title hopes. A win for Inter would put them above Fiorentina and put them into the 3rd and final champions league spot.

Sampdoria vs Atalanta:
Lowly Sampdoria host Atalanta in a really big game at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris. Sampdoria are having a very disappointing Serie A season so far this campaign, they are sitting in 17th and have not won in their last 6 Serie A games losing 5 of them. Sampdoria will also not take confidence in the fact they lost this fixture earlier in the season 2-1. Atalanta are having a reasonable campaign so far this season, The Bergamo based team have amazingly drawn 4 of their last five Serie A game and despite having little chance of being relegated from Serie A they also will not be challenging European places near the top of the table. This game is very important for Sampdoria as they can create a gap from the themselves and the teams in the relegation places.
