The most alluring contest of the weekend in European football sees Juventus host Napoli in Turin in a battle of the unbeaten title contenders in Serie A. It brings together Italy's two best sides in a sell-out match before 40,000 fans at Juventus Stadium.
Both teams have 19 points from their opening seven matches with Juventus marginally ahead of their nearest foes having managed to score two more goals.
It is a repeat of the bad-natured match in the Italian Super Cup at Beijing's National Stadium in August that saw Juventus win 4-2 after extra-time with Napoli having two men sent off.
Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis toasted his players after the Super Cup final defeat to Juve before insisting his club would never again play in the competition.
De Laurentiis was unhappy with the nature of the 4-2 defeat after extra time that saw Goran Pandev and Juan Camilo Zuniga sent off. Napoli also opted to boycott the trophy presentation in protest.
Napoli's decision to refuse to speak to the media was criticised by Juventus and Serie A officials. It all adds to the tension of this latest fixture with De Laurentiis having this to say about his side's defeat in China.
"Am I still angry? Why no, just five minutes after the game I was calm again. You know what I did after dinner? I gathered the team, I took them out to a club and we toasted them with 10 bottles of champagne...this Super Cup is worthless, as it is organised."
De Laurentiis will hardly see Serie A as worthless. With Juventus champions from last year and boasting an unbeaten 45-game league record running on from their run to the crown last term, the spotlight is on Napoli to see if they can lay down a marker that they are ready to mount a challenge for their first Scudetto since 1990 and the days of Diego Maradona.
Juventus are boosted by the return of assistant manager Angelo Alessio to their bench as Antonio Conte continues to serve his match-fixing connected ban until December.
Juventus continue to harbour doubts over Gianluigi Buffon's thigh injury sustained in last Friday's 3-1 win over Armenia in a World Cup qualifier and Mirko Vucini, who has flu and is rated less likely to make it than the Italy goalkeeper. Midfielder Claudio Marchisio continues to give cause for concern due to a shoulder problem.
Napoli's success so far this season appears to be founded on a stout defence. They have lost only three goals and have yet to concede away from home. The visiting side are likely to adopt a 3-5-1-1 formation which would enable Cavani to play in the role of lone striker.
Napoli will certainly hope forward Cavani is at his brilliant best having scored six goals in the opening seven games of the campaign.
He has returned from Uruguay's World Cup qualifier with Bolivia in Le Paz, a match that saw his national side shredded 4-1 on Tuesday.
Fabio Quagliarella is likely to start for the home side with Sebastian Giovinco and Alessandro Matri among the favourites to be deployed behind or alongside him.
Juventus will look to Andrea Pirlo and Kwadwo Asamoah to supply the bullets for Quagliarella to fire while Mark Hamsik and Pandev provide a clear and present danger in and around the feet of Cavani.
Walter Mazzarri's side can take heart knowing they usurped Juventus 2-0 to win the Coppa Italia last May. A repeat of that outcome would work for the visitors this time.
