Napoli Team News
The home team has been waiting 33 years for a title, and there is a good chance that that wait will end this season. We must say, it absolutely deserved. In 19 games, Napoli registered 16 wins, 2 draws, and only 1 loss and sovereignly rules the first position in the table.
Napoli has 10 points more than Inter and 12 more than AC Milan, so only a miracle will prevent them from reaching the trophy. The recent 5:1 victory against Juventus, who have the epithet of a “tough” and defensive team, is the best proof of the team’s dominance from Naples.
This season, only Lecce managed to take 1 point from Naples, while Napoli registered 8 victories in the other 8 matches, with only 7 goals conceded. Undoubtedly, the visitors will have a serious challenge on Sunday night.
AS Roma Team News
If AS Roma doesn’t “secure” placement in the Champions League this season, they never will. After many years, the team from Rome seems like a worthy competitor in the fight for the Champions League. Mourinho managed to establish the desired game system and discipline, which has brought success so far. AS Roma are only 3 points behind second-placed Inter, so all options are “in play.”
The visitors have conceded 16 goals in 19 games this season, which is the third-best defensive performance in the league, along with Juventus. We must mention that AS Roma have conceded 11 goals in 10 away matches, but considering the quality of teams this season in Serie A, we think it’s not such a bad performance.
Patience has been the key to AS Roma’s success so far this season, and we do not doubt that Mourinho will demand from his players a slower pace and wait patiently for opportunities in the rest of the competition.
4 of the last 5 matches between these teams ended with a maximum of 2 goals scored. Also, in 4 of the last 5 duels between each other, one team did not manage to score a goal.
Injuries and suspensions
AS Roma: Celik, Darboe, Wijnaldum, Zaniolo.
Napoli vs AS Roma Prediction
Although all the parameters are on the home team’s side, we would never underestimate the guests. On the one hand, we have Napoli, who play ultra offensively, and AS Roma, who cultivate a slower pace of play. If anyone knows how to set tactics for games like this, it’s Jose Mourinho.
The practice has shown that teams that rely on the defensive have a slight advantage in such situations. And this time, we expect that Mourinho will demand ball control and a much slower pace from his players because AS Roma cannot match the host offensively at the moment. We say that although Dybala and Abraham are in good form.
We believe this will be a game in which we could very easily see only one goal, maybe two at the most. It is thankless to predict the winner even though Napoli is closer to triumph, and here we go with the so-called special bet, which you can find in almost every better sportsbook.
