The Serie A title holder currently tops the league with a two-point lead over the Partenopei, while the Nerazzurri sit third, four points behind the table-toppers. Pandev has played down the importance of the upcoming fixture, though, reminding that there are still a lot of matches to be played this term.
"It will be a very interesting game," the Macedonia international told reporters. "I honestly don't think, however, that it will serve to see which side will be the anti-Juventus. The championship is still very long. We'll just look to give our best and then we'll see where we end up."
Juventus will have a chance to gain points on either side this weekend with its away match to Palermo.
