Roma vs SSC Napoli Match Prediction

By William Hall

Two of Serie A's big guns go head to head this weekend as Roma welcome Napoli to Stadio Olimpico on Saturday evening. Roma come into this game on great form winning all of their last four games with their last win coming in a 2-0 win away to AC Milan. Napoli have had a perfect start to the Serie A campaign, playing seven and winning seven. They are currently sitting top of the table, two points in hand over reigning champions Juventus. With both sides full of confidence, this could be one of the best games of the whole weekend. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

With two of the leagues best sides going head to head, it is always hard to go out and pick an outright winner. However, with both teams scoring goals for fun at the moment, I can defiantly see this one being a bit of a goal fest. Roma and Napoli have been outstanding defensively this season, but with both of them looking excellent going forward, I can see the defences becoming undone at times.Last season these two met just the two times, and on both occasions, the away team came out on top, both teams scored, and the games had over 2.5 goals in. For me, I can at least two of things happening again this weekend, and possibly all three. For both teams this game in massive, even though it very early on in the season. Napoli will want to keep their 100% record going for as long as possible to extend their lead at the top while Roma will want to keep the pressure on Napoli, Juventus and co. Below are my very best betting tips and predictions for this massive game in Serie A this weekend.

Over 2.5 goals - 4/7

Both teams to score -1/2

Roma scored over 2.5 goals in 5 out of their last 10 games played

SSC Napoli saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

Roma Preview

Roma are one of only two teams to play six games this season, and although they have played one less, they are still sitting 5th in the table. A win in this one plus a win in their games in hand could take them joint on points with Napoli. Eden Dzeko has carried on from where he left off last season, already scoring seven goals in just six games. After scoring 29 for the club last season, a lot of expectation will be on his shoulders and as it starts, he is thriving off that pressure. At home, Roma tend to be very solid, winning four of their last five games including an impressive win over Juventus at the back end of last season. That just proves they have enough to be able to challenge the best teams in the league; they must just become more consistent to try and put in a title chase. Defensively, Roma are one of the best teams in the league, conceding just four goals in their opening six. This is the second best record up to now in Serie A behind Inter Milan.

Roma Team News

Roma have ten doubts this weekend with Diego Perotti (thigh injury), Kevin Strootman (groin injury), Lorenzo Pellegrini (calf injury), Emerson (ACL), Luca Pellegrini (ACL), Patrik Schick (hamstring injury), Daniele De Rossi (knee injury), Abdulladhi Nura (thigh injury) and Gregoire Defrel (thigh injury) all recovering from injuries.

SSC Napoli Preview

Napoli look as if they have a point to prove this season and with seven wins out of seven in Serie A so far this season, they are defiantly doing an excellent job of it. Napoli have already beaten Lazio this season, but bar them they haven't yet played anyone in the top six meaning this weekend could show us really how good they are this season. Dries Mertens and Jose Callejon have formed an unreal partnership this season, already bagging eleven goals between them. As a duo, they are looking like one of the best in Serie A meaning defenders around the league are fearing the prospect of going up against them. As a whole squad, Napoli have been unreal both going forward and defensively. The side have managed to score a fantastic 25 goals in just seven games so far, conceding only five which gives you a clear view to why they are winning games every week. Last time out Napoli made light work of Cagliari, beating them 3-0 at home. Although this test will be a lot harder, they will feel they can get something from the match.

SSC Napoli Team News

Napoli will be without just two players for te trip to Rome with Faouzi Ghoulam (hamstring injury) and Arkadiusz Milik (knee injury) both sidelined.
