Reason For Napoli vs Roma Predictions

  • Napoli have won three of their last four league games at the San Paolo.
  • The Partenopei have also won six of their last seven in Serie A.
  • Five of Roma’s nine Serie A defeats have finished 2-0.

Fight for fifth

Midweek results all but ended the chase for the final Champions League spot in Serie A. Atalanta saw off Napoli, while Roma lost at home to Udinese. That defeat left the Giallorossi 12 points shy of Atalanta, so fourth place is all but wrapped up.

While it is nowhere near as important, Roma now face a fight for fifth. It’s pretty much just symbolic, given that Napoli have booked their Europa League spot and the top seven will make it into Europe as a result. However, it could be a huge boost to Gennaro Gattuso if he carries his Napoli side back into the top five.

Napoli on form

He has a great chance of doing that if his record against the visitors is anything to go by. Gattuso is unbeaten as a manager against AS Roma in the top-flight (W2 D1). He’s thriving since arriving in Naples, despite being a left-field choice to succeed Carlo Ancelotti. The former AC Milan boss has brought silverware to the club just last month, while he’s produced an incredible turnaround in form.

After losing four home games in a row, Napoli have won three of their last four Serie A games at the San Paolo (L1). The hosts have won six of their last seven matches, part of their brilliant bounce under their new boss. They are aiming to add to that against Roma, while preventing them from completing a long-awaited league double.

Problems for Roma

Roma won the reverse fixture in November 2019 (2-1) – last time they won both meetings against Napoli in the same Serie A campaign was in 1997/98, under Zdenek Zeman. The Roma of 2020 are hoping to emulate that, but they come into this clash having seen their away form take a serious dip. Roma have lost three of their last four away games (as many losses an in their previous 20 games on the road) and conceded 11 goals in the process.

Roma have lost back to back games, going down to AC Milan and Udinese. Those defeats were major setbacks and both clashes which the Giallorossi should have won. This is a different story, with Napoli in fine form. Given how well they are playing under Gattuso, we are siding with the hosts in the first of our predictions here.

Roma have lost back to back games 2-0, a scoreline which has landed in five of their nine losses in Serie A this term. With the hosts scoring twice in each of their last four Serie A matches at the San Paolo, we are going with 2-0 to Napoli as our corect score prediction.
