AS Roma vs Napoli prediction comes before the 11th Serie A round matchup. This match will be played on Friday, November the 1st, at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy. In this match preview, we will provide you with the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these two Italian giants.
AS Roma vs Napoli Betting Tips
Ten rounds have passed in the 2019-20 season of the Italian Serie A and both AS Roma and Napoli are losing the title race to Juventus and Inter. Although they weren’t thought of as major title contenders before the start of the season, AS Roma and Napoli are ambitions teams with illustrious histories. That’s why both teams feel like they could’ve done better in the first quarter of the season.
Of course, there’s still plenty of time left for these two to get near the top of the table. Even if they don’t get to the point in which they could challenge the title, these teams definitely wish to finish among the top four teams, thus booking themselves a spot in the Champions League next season.
Right now, AS Roma have a point more than Napoli, who have dropped a lot of points lately. The Sky Blues from Naples have played a draw on three occasions in the last four rounds of the Serie A. They failed to beat teams like Torino, SPAL, and Atalanta. The match with Atalanta was played last Wednesday at Napoli’s stadium, where they’re famously brilliant.
AS Roma, on the other hand, have won their previous two matches, including the one against AC Milan. The match was played at the Olimpico, where AS Roma haven’t been too great this season, with two wins, two draws, and one defeat. Their goal difference at home is 10:9 at the moment. Still, this team is known for playing well when supported by their fans.
What’s got to worry AS Roma is that they have a lot of problems with injuries. Five of their first-team players are out while a few others are struggling with fitness. When it comes to Napoli, they have almost no problems with injuries.
Another problem for AS Roma is that in five days’ time, they’re traveling to Germany to play Borussia Monchengladbach in the Europa League. Their minds might already be set on that match because it’s a pretty tense situation in Group J, where table leaders AS Roma have only three points more than the bottom-placed Borussia Monchengladbach. The other two teams, namely Basaksehir and Wolfsberger AC, have four points each.
Napoli, on the other hand, are playing against Salzburg at home next week in the Champions League, in a match in which they’re huge favorites. That means that they can focus on the match played in Rome on Saturday afternoon and give their best to win it.
