Pavel Nedved believes Juventus and Napoli are the two best teams in the Serie A ahead of their top-of-the-table clash on Saturday.
The star Czech Republic midfielder says the match in Turin will not be decisive in the title race just yet, and hopes the recent internationals will not affect the game.
“It’s still too early to be a decisive game. But it will be a great encounter contested between two of the best teams in Italy,” Nedved told the Juventus website.
“It’s not a battle between (Antonio) Conte and (Walter) Mazzarri, it’s a meeting of two great teams, led by two great coaches.
“I can’t wait for the game. I hope it will be an enjoyable encounter in spite of the inevitable tiredness of the many players who have been on international duty.
“Between them Juventus and Napoli had a total of around 30 players on their travels and each and every one of them will have been focused on performing for their respective nations.”
Juve and Napoli sit joint first in Serie A with 19 points from seven games.
