Maurizio Sarri’s squad are staying at the luxurious Parker Hotel in Naples, their preferred choice of accommodation when travelling to pay their domestic rivals in recent years.
But Napoli fans are doing all they can to disrupt Cristiano Ronaldo and Co, calling them ‘thieves’ and telling Juventus to ‘go back to Turin’.

Bus drivers are said to be struggling to navigate their way through the crowds for fear of hitting someone.
Fans have brought the area around the hotel to a standstill with traffic unable to pass by. Fortunately there have been no injuries at present but a bus came perilously close to causing an accident as it tried to dodge the fans.
Police and hotel security are struggling to contain Napoli fans, who are desperate to ensure Juve endure a sleepless night before the match on Sunday.
Juventus players have reserved the same floor and even the same rooms as their previous victorious trips to face Napoli.
Striker Gonzalo Higuain picked his usual room that boasts a glorious sea view.
It is the first time Sarri has returned to Naples as Juventus manager. He left for Chelsea in the summer of 2018 but is now back as the boss of his former team’s closest domestic rivals.
Juventus go into the game four points clear of second-placed Inter Milan while Napoli are down in 13th after a woeful start to the season.
