The Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini has said that he is not of the opinion that the match against Napoli after the international break will be the decisive fixture when it comes to the title at the end of the season. Napoli will be taking on Juventus after the international break.

This match will see the top two teams in the Italian Serie A go head-to-head against each other. Napoli will be looking to finally bring an end to the unbeaten record Juventus have had for more than a year now. Meanwhile, Juventus will be looking to establish themselves as the firm favourites of the title by winning against Napoli and taking advantage of the home advantage.

Due to the fact that there are still numerous games to play in the division, the Juventus and the Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini is of the opinion that this match will not be the decisive when it comes to the title race. Instead, it will be the form throughout the rest of the season that will determine the destination of the title. Giorgio Chiellini will be playing for the Italian national team during this period in the matches against Armenia and Denmark.

"It will be a great game just like the ones against AC Milan and Inter, but it won’t decide the Scudetto. It’s still too early for that. Our biggest strength is to take things on a game by game basis, and we need to maintain that mindset. It’s been a very positive month. I’ve played well and don’t need to rest, which is also down to the fact that I’ve recently spent a long time on the sidelines through injury," said the defender. Both Napoli and Juventus have taken 19 points from seven matches played so far, while they also remain as the two unbeaten teams this season.
