Juve-Napoli, will be played on March 17th at 6.45pm: now it’s official

The match in Turin comes in a week that is worth the season for Gattuso’s team, in the midst of two other direct clashes against top teams

Outlined for some time, the date of the recovery of Juventus-Napoli was done after the exit of the Azzurri from the Europa League and the announcement of the Lega Calcio now carves it in stone: the recovery of the third day of Serie A, skipped on 4 last October for the stop to the Napoli away match at the disposal of the Campania ASL, it will be played on Wednesday 17 March at 6.45 pm.

Busy week

The match arrives for Juventus eight days after the return of the Champions League with Porto on March 9, therefore in the week between the match on Sunday 14 at 18 in Cagliari and that of Sunday 21 at 15 at home with Benevento. On the other hand, the match of the calendar for Napoli is certainly soon, committed on Sunday 14 in the postponement of 20.45 on the field of Milan second in the standings and then on Sunday 21 again at 20.45 in the direct clash for a place in Europe at Rome: a trio of matches , with the trip to Juventus in between, which is worth almost a season. However, the Azzurri and Bianconeri have already crossed paths in the Super Cup, with Juventus’ 2-0 success in Reggio Emilia on 20 January, and in the second leg of the championship (therefore played before the first leg), with Napoli’s 1-0 win at home on February 13.

Why was not played

The match was not played in October because following the positivity of Zielinski, Elmas and a staff member following the match against Genoa (among the rossoblù there were 22 positive cases) the ASL of the Campania capital had ordered the stop to the trip to Turin of Napoli, requesting fiduciary isolation. Referring to the various provisions for Serie A, Juventus had presented themselves at the Allianz Stadium: the sports judge had thus decided the 3-0 at the table with a penalty point for Napoli. On 23 December, the Coni College of Guarantee accepted Napoli’s appeal, annulling the provisions of the sports judge and thus making it necessary to recover the match.
