Juventus are getting desperate now as the clock ticks closer to 90'. Two quick-fire corners end in frustration, but Napoli are camped in their own half and there's no way out at the moment. Ten minutes to hold on!
Lozano is hurt in the process of clearing with his head at the near post, and he requires some treatment, and some ice.

Goal disallowed! Morata takes an excellent touch and fires in what he thinks is the equaliser, but it's ruled offside, Chiellini - who registered the assist - was offside.
Napoli are desperately trying to get a foothold in this second-half. Although Juve have dominated since the restart, they have nothing yet to show for it.
Chance for Juve! The visitors work a really smart free-kick routine and Chiesa lets fly with a venomous shot from the edge of the penalty area. It's straight at Meret, but he sees it late and does brilliantly to palm it away to safety.

End to end stuff here in Naples as Morata leads Juve's counter-attack but runs into trouble as he approaches the penalty area.
Insigne darts past de Ligt but his shot is excellently blocked by Chiellini.

Possible Napoli penalty! Rrahmani is down inside the box and screaming in pain after challenging to meet Insigne's cross. He's caught by the arm of Chiellini and VAR is going to have a look at this.
An excellent cross is delivered by the excellent Cuadrado. Meret is brave and gets there before Ronaldo to punch clear. Again, the offside flag is up against the Portuguese, but the Napoli goalkeeper wasn't to know that.
- Yellow cardGiovanni Di LorenzoNapoli
Yellow card! Lorenzo makes a poor challenge on Chiesa in a desperate bid to retrieve possession having lost the ball.
Lozano comes forward for Napoli, leading the counter with a run through the middle. He decides to hit an early shot, but it's never troubling Szcznesy.
Decent spell in the game for Napoli, this. They win two corners in succession, the latest sees Lozano heading wide from a tight angle.
Wide! Excellent defending from De Lit as he matches Lozano for pace and blocks his cross. Insigne pounces on the rebound but his first-time shot fails to test Szcznesy.
Over! Morata dribbles into the box and gets a pass away. Ronaldo leaves it for Bernadeschi, who leans back and blazes a shot high into the stands. Best chance so far.

Kick-off! We are underway for Napoli versus Juventus in Serie A!
Ospina cannot start and will be replaced by Alex Meret. Disaster for Napoli.
Just 10 minutes until kick-off! Napoli goalkeeper David Ospina has suffered a thigh problem in the warm-up and may not be able to feature in today's game. That's the last thing Gattuso needs!
Did you know? Napoli have lost four of their last six meetings with Juventus in all competitions. On the whole, Partenopei have been beaten in six of their last 12 games in all competitions this calendar year.
Reports suggest that Gattuso will be axed if Napoli fall to another defeat today. When quizzed about the consequences of a loss, Gattuso said: "I don’t know, you have to ask the club. The captain of the ship is me, when things go badly, they are at the expense of the captain. I can’t think of this as the penultimate or last resort, I have to work and I have to be able to trust. I’m a coach, it’s like that. I won’t be the first, nor the last, but I have the duty to try until the end.”
Juventus haven't lost since going down to title rivals Inter at the San Siro last month, and that was their only defeat since the turn of the year. "We are improving, we had lost against Inter and luckily, after that game, we played and won a final," continued Pirlo. "The team have raised the level and understood their mistakes. We begun a convincing path, we knew we needed time to improve on a tactical level. We look at ourselves, we want to win games and get as much points as possible, we want to win in Naples for ourselves, we don’t look at them, but we focus on the teams that are ahead of us."
Pirlo on Napoli: "We’ve already faced them in the Super Cup and tomorrow’s game is more important than the reverse fixture that was not played, these situations can be annoying and we are only focusing on ourselves."
An excellent article by Eurosport's Pete Sharland on Juve's renaissance.
This is the first time this season Napoli and Juventus meet in the Serie A this season - the match scheduled in October didn't take place as Napoli didn't travel due to Covid-19 cases. Pirlo's side emerged victorious when they squared off in the Italian Supercup last month. Gattuso's side have won just two matches since in a poor run of form that has seen them fall to sixth in the table.
Giorgio Chiellini celebrates his 400th Serie A appearance and comes back into the side after being rested for the second leg match against Inter on Tuesday, as Juve target a fourth consecutive clean sheet. Alvaro Morata also returns to the fold to partner Cristiano Ronaldo in attack.
Victor Osimhen returns to lead the line Napoli for his first appearance since November, but under pressure boss Gennaro Gattuso is still without a number of players including Dries Mertens, Kalidou Koulibaly and Kostas Manolas.
