AS Roma vs Napoli Match Preview

Home » AS Roma vs Napoli Match Preview

AS Roma would host underperforming title challengers SS Napoli in this game with the home side looking to continue their recent fine run of form.

Roma thrashed Udinese 0-4 away from home in their last league. It was a performance so good that Chris Smalling scored for the visitors, in all fairness though, Udinese is not at the same level as Napoli at the moment.

Napoli on their part, have struggled for form recently and Carlo Ancelotti’s men who are supposed to be challenging for the title find themselves 6th on the league table ahead of their visit to this in-form Roma side.

Betting Preview

AS Roma seem to have found some consistency under their new manager who joined them over the summer. They have been scoring the goals as well and have scored in all but one of their last 7 games.

SS Napoli have been held back by inconsistency but they remain one of the league’s top sides and would be looking to get back to winning ways here.

Napoli also have goals in them with 7 goals scored in their last 3 games. They have also scored every single time in the last 4 times they have visited Roma.

Dries Mertens has scored in 4 of the last 5 h2h between these sides and looks a get bet for anytime scorer.

With both of this team scoring goals and failing to shut out opponents, Both Teams to Score and a 2-2 entertaining draw could be on the cards here and is an appealing bet for this game as well.

Suggested Bets:

Both Teams to Score (YES) @ 8/15
