Another match of the tour in Serie A. And another team that so far has not lost a single match – Napoli. Duels between these teams have always had an unpredictable scenario.
Roma managed to beat Sampdoria 1-0 in Genoa on Monday, but the actions of the “Wolves” can hardly be called confident and if Dejan Stankovic’s men were a little luckier at the end of the attacks, the Romans would not have taken home 3 points in this match. The victory allowed to enter the top 4, but in fact, before the battle with Napoli at the Olimpico there are problems with the composition: the defenders Dagbo, Celic and Karsdorp do not play, and the main striking force Paolo Dibala was lost for a long time. And against Napoli we can hardly admire Roma’s game now.
It’s a joke, but since the beginning of the fall, the leader of the Italian championship played 10 matches in different tournaments and won all of them. In Serie A the first place in the Champions League and early access to the playoffs, so the first part of the season was a success. A week earlier in the league league last round Spaletti’s team crushed Bologna in Naples 3-2. By the way, the visitors benefited from a week on their busy schedule to recover and prepare for more important games. But even so they fascinate the fans with their game – they score as much as they want, and concede as much as opponents can score. And with Roma in Rome, I expect another performance from Hvici and company.
It must be said that Napoli has not lost to Roma in the last 5 head-to-head encounters. Given the playing conditions of the teams, their game structure and Roma’s problems with the roster, it is the guests in this match that I want to lean on. For all the unreliability of the defense, Napoli’s attacking lineup looks much more mobile, dangerous and efficient, which plays very intensively and, of course, it is the main threat for the hosts. I believe that in such circumstances, the guests are unlikely to lose again to the Romans.
