What Happened When Napoli And Juventus Fans Met In Street Ahead Of Crunch Clash
When Napoli and Juventus supporters crossed paths in a street in Turin ahead of tomorrow's crunch class at the Allianz Stadium, you'd fear the worst.
Going into the huge game, Juventus are four points clear of Maurizio Sarri's side having accrued 85 points so far this season.
A win for Max Allegri's men would almost guarantee an unprecedented seventh straight Scudetto for the Bianconeri, while defeat would put Napoli right back in the mix.
The importance of tomorrow night's fixture cannot be overstated, but it seems like some sections of both supporters aren't taking it too seriously.
In a clip that has been doing the rounds on social media, the two sets of fans come face-to-face and you are thinking some Green Street shit is about to go down when they charge at one another.
Yet, instead they all jump up and down, chant songs and have an absolute whale of a time. It's a wonderful video that shows Italian football culture in a very good light.

Prior to that meeting, thousands of Napoli fans should support to their team for the massive fixture by turning up at the airport, while a similar number gathered at the San Paulo stadium.
