Gianluigi Buffon is confident that Juventus can see off Napoli in the race for the Serie A title.

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has admitted that Napoli are pushing his side all the way in the race for the Serie A title this season.

The two sides meet on March 3 in a game that could go some way to deciding where the scudetto ends up in May.

"There is still more than a week until we play Napoli," Gazzetta dello Sport quotes Buffon as saying.

"We have a great respect for Napoli, who are pushing us all the way, but we have confidence that we can beat them."

Juventus are four points ahead of Napoli in the league.
