AS Roma Team News

Roma welcomes Napoli after two consecutive triumphs in Serie A, against Lecce at the Olimpico 2-1 and in Genoa against Sampdoria 0-1 in the last round. Although they won 3 points against Lecce, in that game Jose Mourinho was left without an important player of his team, Argentinian striker Paolo Dybala. Mourinho will not be able to count on him due to injury in the upcoming period, not even in the important duel with Napoli.

Against Sampdoria in the last round, Roma took an early lead in the 9th minute with a goal by their captain Lorenzo Pellegrini from the penalty spot. Both of them tried to change the result on several occasions, but it didn’t happen, Roma took all three points.

The Giallorossi achieved their 7th victory in Serie A and with 22 points they are currently in the 4th position in the table, 4 points less than the leader Napoli, against whom they will play on Sunday in a direct match.
