Roma vs Napoli
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 31 March 2019
Kick-Off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Roma endured a couple of turbulent weeks before the international break. They were knocked out of the Champions League after a 3-1 loss in the reverse fixture of the last 16 round tie against Porto away at Estadio Do Dragao. They also significantly halted their push for the top-four finish in Serie A with a shocking 2-1 defeat away at SPAL last time out.
Furthermore, Claudio Ranieri has huge problems with spirits inside his dressing room. Team’s star man Edin Dzeko had a fight with fellow attacker Stephan El Shaarawy at the half-time of the mentioned loss at SPAL. Bosnian forward has slight injury concerns and will likely skip this visit of Napoli on Sunday afternoon at Stadio Olimpico.
Roma vs Napoli: Head-to-head
Roma lead the head to head tie by nine wins coming into the landmark 40th encounter with Partinopei.
Teams shared spoils in a 1-1 draw when they locked horns in this term of Serie A in late-October.
Both outfits were on the scoresheet in tree of last four H2H affairs.
Giallorossi were much more successful in the history of H2H outings at Stadio Olimpico where they won 11, drew 4 and lost 4 of 19 matches with Napoli.
Roma vs Napoli: Prediction
Napoli officially lost the battle for Scudetto at the start of the month when they fell 1-2 at home to Juventus. They are aiming at Europa League silverware now given the top-four finish in Serie A is almost secured with as many as 13 points between them and Roma.
Partinopei were in good touch in precious round when they notched four goals past Udinese at Stadio San Paolo. They certainly head into this in much higher spirits and their confidence will play a big role when Carlo Ancelotti’s men come face to face with Roma. The hosts were fairly easy to break down lately and we believe they will struggle to hold down Napoli’s superb attacking line here.
