Napoli vs Roma

, KO: 17:00 Apr 28, 2024, Stadio Diego Armando Maradona

Napoli host Roma in a Serie A fixture on Saturday with both teams looking to maintain their push for a European finish. The Neapolitans have been out of sorts for much of the season and Roma will fancy their chances of avoiding defeat in this one.

Napoli have now officially been dethroned as Serie A champions after Inter Milan clinched the title last time out. It has been an abysmal title defence by the Neapolitans as they are currently eighth on the table, five points off the European places.

Partenopei have struggled for much of the season and their form does not appear to be getting better. Francesco Calzona’s men have picked up just one win from their last six Serie A matches and were beaten 1-0 at home by Empoli in their previous fixture.

Things are just as difficult for Napoli at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona where they have picked up just one win from their last six matches. However, they have played out four draws in that run, including a 2-2 scoreline with Frosinone in their previous home fixture.

Roma have fared a bit better than Napoli in recent weeks having won four of their last five matches. They continue to push for a Champions League finish and are currently fifth on the table, four points off the top four.

The capital club suffered a 3-1 home defeat to Bologna in their previous Serie A fixture. However, they completed a 2-1 victory in the concluding part of their clash with Udinese on Thursday after the initial fixture was interrupted following an incident involving Evan Ndicka.

The win at Udinese extends a decent away record for Roma, who are unbeaten in their last six Serie A matches on the road. Danielle De Rossi’s men have picked up four wins in that run but have kept just two clean sheets in their last 10 matches on the road.

How the bookies view it

Despite their recent problems, Napoli have been installed as overwhelming favourites with a home win priced at 19/20 with Coral. A victory for Roma is valued at 3/1 by bet365 while William Hill is offering odds of 27/10 for a draw.

Head to head

Roma have a 21-17 advantage with 13 draws from 41 previous matches against Napoli. The capital club claimed a 2-1 victory in the reverse fixture back in December.

Players to watch

Despite not being at his best this season, Victor Osimhen remains the leading scorer for Napoli with 13 Serie A goals. The striker has also scored in two of the last three meetings with Roma and is priced at 7/5 by Betfred to find the net on Sunday.

Paulo Dybala is the leading scorer for Roma with 12 Serie A goals and could be the one to watch on Sunday. The Argentine forward is priced at 10/3 by bet365 to get on the score sheet.

Anything else catch the eye?

There were over 3.5 goals in Napoli’s previous home fixture and a similar outcome is priced at 23/10 with Paddy Power. Over 2.5 goals could also be considered at 10/11 by bet365, who is also offering 3/4 on both teams to score.

The Neapolitans have conceded the opening goal in five of their last six matches across all competitions, so Roma could be backed to score first at 8/5 with bet365. With Roma expected to avoid defeat on Sunday, a double chance could be a safe bet at 20/23 with BoyleSports.
