BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION

Roma vs

On Sunday night, Roma and Napoli go head-to-head at the Stadio Olimpico, as the two teams compete for vital points in the race for the Champions League spots in Serie A.

ROMA

Paulo Fonseca’s team are two points outside the Champions League spots after a recent run of inconsistent form in the Italian top-flight. A 2-0 defeat at relegation-threatened Parma last time out means that the Giallorossi have won just two of their last five matches in the Italian top-flight.

One positive for Roma is that they are still hard to beat on home soil, as the Giallorossi have lost just once in their last 18 Serie A games at the Stadio Olimpico. They have also won four of their previous five home games in the Italian top-flight.

NAPOLI

A recent good run of league form has put Napoli back in the fight for the Champions League spots, as the team from Naples are now level on points with Roma and within touching distance of that last Champions League qualification berth. A 1-0 win at Milan in their last league outing means that Gennaro Gattuso’s team are now unbeaten in four league games, having recorded three wins in the process.

The visitors have been potent in front of goal of late in Serie A, having scored two or more goals in four of their last five matches in the Italian top-flight.

One facet of Roma’s game that needs to improve is their away form, as Napoli have won just one of their last five league matches on their travels. That one win was the aforementioned 1-0 win in Milan.

Team News

Roma look set to be without Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Chris Smalling, Juan Jesus, Nicolo Zaniolo and Jordan Veretout through injury and illness.

Napoli could be without Faouzi Ghoulam, Andrea Petagna and Amir Rrahmani through injury.

Match Prediction

This is a classic clash of a strong home team against a side that is dangerous on their travels. We are backing the home side to inflict a third straight defeat on Milan, in what should be a highly entertaining clash.

Odds 6/4
