Napoli vs Roma (By: Stanioooo)
Napoli will host Roma in the 27th round of Italian Seria A.
The hosts are in really hot form and this season they give big pressure to Juve for the title in the domestic league. The biggest advantage of Napoli is that they won't play in any other competition than the league and they will be pretty much concentrated in every single match they have to play. I believe they can do it this season and finally someone will stop Juve. Four points advantage of Napoli with one match less for the Torino's giant combined with Juve's hard visit to Lazio.. I'm sure Napoli feel they can even add some more pressure over Juve and the difference in points between them can increase after this round. Roma sit comfortably in the 5th place, while Lazio and Inter are really close to them at 3rd and 4th position. They have the great chance to finish 3rd and play in CL next season, but I don't think they will delude themselves too much that 3 points here away to Napoli are ablosutely required. Roma's form is far away from perfect- they lost to Shakhtar in CL, while last week they also lost to Milan at home. Napoli are flying high after they totally outplayed Cagliari last round with 5:0 as visitors.
Napoli won't rely on the missing players Ghoulam and Chiriches, while Milik is doubtful, while Roma will miss here Karsdorp and Pellegrini. Both teams are expected to start with their best players and goals are waiting here for sure. Napoli are more stable and consistent team right now, they also have to deal with the negative home form against Roma during the last two times they faced each other- 1:3 to Roma and 0:0. I believe they will stop the negative trends at home against this opponent today with a comfortable win. Napoli will chase for the title till the end and 3 points here will be vital. Maybe BTTS+over 2.5goals is also a good option here. I feel it will finish 3:1 to Napoli.
