Napoli vs Roma
Italian Serie A
Date: 29 January 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Diego Armando Maradona (Naples).

Napoli and Roma will close a very exciting Sunday in Serie A with their Gameweek No 20 clash at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

The hosts have been outstanding so far in the season. They have all but claimed the Scudetto title halfway through the campaign.

The team led by Luciano Spalletti sit as many as twelve points clear off second-placed AC Milan. They boast the best attacking and defensive records in the league at the same time with the goal difference of 46-14.

I Partinopei showed strength by bagging five goals past Juventus in the previous home fixture in the league.

Napoli notched nine goals in the previous three league wins. They have the competition’s top scorer Victor Osimhen in their ranks,

The Nigerian forward notched 13 goals so far in the season. He was on the scoresheet last weekend as well in the 0-2 victory over Salernitana.

Napoli’s red-hot offensive line will find it very hard to shine past Roma’s rock-solid defense, though. The visitors have kept three consecutive clean sheets in all competitions.

The Romans have four wins and one draw in the last five outings across competitions. They have kept four clean sheets in the process.

Jose Mourinho’s men climbed to the fifth position in the Serie A ladder after the mentioned streak. It will be very interesting to see whether they can cause any damage to the sovereign table-toppers on Sunday.

Napoli vs Roma Head-to-head

  • Napoli will go into this on the back of four victories and two draws in the previous six meetings with the Romans.
  • Overall, Roma lead the head to head tie by 4 wins going into the 50th encounter with I Partinopei.
  • None of the previous four head to head outings between these counterparts saw three or more goals scored.

Napoli vs Roma Prediction

Roma will park the bus and try and back up the recent successes given they kept four clean sheets in the last five matches across competitions.

Knowing that none of the previous four H2H clashes between these teams saw three or more goals scored, we are tempted to back the low-scoring scenario in Naples. Considering Napoli’s strength, we will still back them to claim the spoils. The bet is Napoli to win & Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 4.00.
