Undefeated Juventus look to finish their season with a floroush by claiming a league and cup double. All that stands in their way are Walter Mazzarri's Napoli.

Juventus and Napoli square off in the Coppa Italia final on Sunday, with Juve hoping to complete an undefeated double by fending off the only side that's come particularly close to beating them since the 2010/11 season. Napoli, meanwhile, will be pushing hard for their first trophy since 1990, which would partially make up for a disappointing season in which the Partenopei failed to retain their status as a Champions League club.

It's been a while since either side has won the competition, which has been dominated by the trio of Roma, Lazio and Inter Milan for the better part of a decade, but Juventus do have nine wins and would love to be the first club ever to ten. You'd have to imagine that they're also keen on preserving their phenomenal unbeaten run and that Napoli will be just as keen on stopping it. Juve are the favourites, of course - they finished 23 points ahead of their opponents in the league - but when Napoli play a full-strength lineup they're more than capable of giving anyone problems.
