Reason for Napoli vs Roma Predictions
It’s a real shame that Napoli’s fans will be unable to pay tribute to their idol inside the ground for this fixture but rest assured, many will congregate outside the Stadio San Paulo to pay their respects. The actual match does appear to pale into insignificance, but Napoli will be keen to bounce back from last weekend’s 3-1 defeat at home to league leaders AC Milan, and they won’t need any greater incentive to bounce back with a win than this Sunday. The hosts still occupy 6th place, and all three points in this encounter would see Napoli move level on points with their 3rd placed visitors, Roma. Still, while Napoli’s results at home have been fairly inconsistent to date with two wins and two defeats, goals have been a feature as three of their four matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals. Gennaro Gattuso is many times in a dilemma of who will start the game from the first minute. Diego Demme shows talent, he has excellent ball control, can play in multiple positions, and every team needs such a player. Hirving Lozano creates a lot of problems for his opponents on the right flank. It’s hard to keep this guy in the one-on-one game, he has fantastic dribbles, and the Mexican international is a real team leader.
Roma may well feel as though they’re a bit of a spare part in this upcoming fixture but make no mistake, they too will also be well motivated to grab the three points here as a win on Sunday could see the visitors move top of the Serie A table. The visitors have suffered just the one defeat so far in this season’s Italian top flight, which was an opening day 3-0 loss away at Hellas Verona. Still, Roma hasn’t looked back since as they’ve put together an impressive seven-match unbeaten sequence. This excellent run of results includes winning their last three matches on the trot with victories over Fiorentina 2-0 at home, Genoa 3-1 away, and a 3-0 win at home over Parma, while results away from home have also been encouraging. Pedro enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He didn’t have a lot of minutes in Chelsea, and he signed for Roma.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw. We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
