Naples will be playing host to Lazio in an effort to secure a ninth victory, while Rome will be engaging in a confrontation with Juventus.

Napoli is looking forward to continuing its victories to move one step closer to achieving its dream of winning the Italian Football League title for the first time since 1990, when it hosts Lazio tomorrow, Friday, in the opening of the 25th round of the Italian Football League. Coach Luciano Spalletti’s team is in the lead, 18 points ahead of Inter II, after the service Bologna gave him by beating Inter with a clean goal last Sunday, a day after the southern club’s victory over Empoli, with two clean goals. It does not seem that anyone can now stand in the way of Napoli’s dream of winning the title that has been awaited for more than 3 decades, even if the competitor is at the level of Lazio, which takes place on Friday at the stadium. "Diego Armando Maradona", which is in fourth place (the last qualifier for the Champions League). Lazio leads by a point ahead of its neighbor Roma, who in turn hosts the revolting Juventus next Sunday, looking to compensate for its fall against Cremonese with a goal of two goals last Tuesday. It will be difficult for coach Mauricio Sarri to stand up to his former team, who returned home from the capital by winning 2-1, and who had not lost at home to Lazio since May 2015, when they fell 2-4. Napoli is counting, as usual, on the brilliance of Georgian newcomer Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Nigerian Victor Osimhen, the league’s top scorer with 19 goals. Napoli’s ambition is not limited to winning the league title only, but also cut more than half the way to skip the final price of the European Champions League for the first time in its history, by beating Eintracht Frankfurt, Germany, with two clean goals last week. And after many thought that Napoli would suffer greatly this season, as a result of losing the efforts of very influential players, such as Lorenzo Insigne, the Belgian Dries Mertens, the Senegalese Kalidou Coulibaly, and the Spaniard Fabian Royce, Spalletti’s men defied expectations thanks to the brilliance of Osimhen, and"infidels" and many others. In light of the southern club flying in the lead, the competition appears to be fierce for the other three places qualifying for the Champions League. Only the goal difference separates Inter II and AC Milan III, after the latter beat Atalanta with two clean goals last Sunday, in a meeting during which French goalkeeper Mike Manian and Swedish veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic recovered after being absent for 5 and 9 months, respectively, due to injury. Inter will try to avoid another stumbling block, when it hosts Lecce next Sunday, while Milan plays Saturday at Fiorentina. At the weekend, the papers may mix between second and sixth place, in light of the difficult test for Lazio against Napoli and for its fifth neighbor, Roma, against its guest, Juventus, who continues to crawl towards the Champions League positions, and compensate for the 15 points that were deducted from it due to the issue of financial manipulation. Juventus, who won 4 consecutive victories, ranks seventh, 10 points ahead of Lazio, and 6 ahead of Atalanta VI, who hosts Udinese the day after tomorrow, Saturday. And pending the decision on his appeal before the Italian Olympic Committee to try to recover the 15 points, coach Massimiliano Allegri’s team presents its best levels this season, as it also reached the semi-finals of the cup by defeating Lazio with a clean goal, and the price of the European League competition final with its great victory in the second leg of the play-off over Hosted by Nantes, France, by 3 goals. Argentine Angel Di Maria’s colleagues hope to continue this uprising at the expense of its host, Roma, whose Portuguese coach, Jose Mourinho, is suspended due to his expulsion against Cremonese in order to prepare in the best way to host Freiburg, Germany, on Thursday, in the first leg of the European League final. Juventus regained the services of French midfielder Paul Pogba, who participated for the first time in an official match with his new-old team, entering in the 69th minute during the Turin match, in which Juventus outperformed by four goals.
