Juve's hopes of getting a result in one of their trickiest away games of the season was complicated by problems caused by the international break.Coach Massimiliano Allegri said earlier on Friday that five South Americans – Paulo Dybala, Juan Cuadrado, Rodrigo Bentancur, Danilo and Alex Sandro – would be left at home after being involved in international fixtures as recently as the early hours of Friday morning.The fixture schedule has left them with little time to travel back to Italy and be ready for a 1800 local time kickoff in Naples on Saturday, a fixture that may well turn out to be between two rivals for the league title.Goalkeeper David Ospina was the only Napoli player to feature in those games.“Choosing the team won’t be difficult because I have so few players."It is clear that with these national team games, and the long flights, some problems emerge.I have decided to leave the South Americans at home, they will get back between tonight and tomorrow morning,” Allegri told a news conference.It will influence this round of league fixtures, penalising some teams," Spalletti told a news conference.we knew they had quality and they showed it," Moder, who scored the only goal for Poland in their 2-1 defeat by England at Wembley in March, said.

"It is a bit like going to the theatre and not finding the best actors.“This must not create excuses, tomorrow the players who will go out on the pitch will be capable of putting in a great performance.“This must not create excuses, tomorrow the players who will go out on the pitch will be capable of putting in a great performance." The two sides head into the game at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in contrasting form, with Spalletti’s side winning their two matches so far and Juve picking up one point."Anyone who has dreamed about football since they were a child like me was dreaming about these big games, the taste of rivalry.“This is the calendar and we must accept it.The players want to go out and play, we are in an optimal situation," Spalletti said.We have 13 or 14 players, and three kids.He added:"The players are very well.The guys who played earlier today will arrive in Italy on Saturday morning, bringing them to Naples would make little sense considering the risks,” Allegri added."This match cost us all a lot.

Those who had to do these international matches and flights naturally have some muscular and mental fatigue."Stanislav Lobotka is not very well, and we have to see with Piotr Zielinski." Juventus, who surrendered the league title to Inter Milan last season as they finished fourth, have suffered a difficult start to the new campaign since Allegri returned for a second spell as coach over the summer." Juventus, who surrendered the league title to Inter Milan last season as they finished fourth, have suffered a difficult start to the new campaign since Allegri returned for a second spell as coach over the summer.There are others we have to evaluate.But there are other players who have trained well to give an important contribution in this match.“Cristiano did not want to play for Juventus any more, he is gone and in any case it would have been his last year." Spalletti revealed that new signing Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa is set to make his debut against Juventus, having joined on loan from Fulham on transfer deadline day last month.” Allegri said."Of course I believed.

"Frank, as he prefers to be known, has shown from the moment he greeted his team mates that he belongs at this level," Spalletti said.“I wish him all the best, but life goes on."He will be very useful for us because we do not have a player with his characteristics elsewhere in the squad.He is what we were looking for to complete the midfield and tomorrow he will play because he is ready.Juve have always won as a group, it is in our DNA.Juve have always won as a group, it is in our DNA."
