GOOD EVENING FROM THE MAPEI STADIUM
Welcome to our live coverage of the Italian Super Cup clash between champions Juventus and Coppa Italia winners Napoli at the Mapei Stadium.
Juve won the Serie A last season with 83 points, one more than runners-up Inter Milan, but lost to the Partenopei in the cup final on penalties following a goalless draw and Arkadiusz Milik's winning spot-kick.
Bianconeri manager Andrea Pirlo may have to reshuffle his depleted defence following Sunday's 2-0 loss to Scudetto rivals Inter.
Juventus' defence struggled immensely against Antonio Conte's counter-attacking side and Pirlo's backline will still be missing Alex Sandro and Matthijs de Ligt, who tested positive for coronavirus and are still in quarantine.
Juan Cuadrado, who also returned a positive test a few weeks ago, came back from self-isolation but didn't make the squad for the Super Cup.
The Old Lady of Turin will also be without the creativity of Paulo Dybala, who is still nursing a knee injury.
Napoli manager Gennaro Gattuso will also be missing key players due to the pandemic as Fabian Ruiz and Victor Osimhen tested positive for COVID-19.
Dries Mertens is not expected to start against Juventus as he has yet to regain full form following an ankle injury but could come off the bench.
However, Andrea Petagna has recovered from a calf injury and will provide cover up front with support from the powerful midfield trio of Lorenzo Insigne, Piotr Zielinski and Hirving Lozano
