Napoli vs Roma – Betting Preview

Two in-form sides meet at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona on Sunday and these Napoli vs. Roma predictions show that it should be the home side celebrating yet another victory at the end!

Napoli Preview

On Sunday, Naples will play home to a very fascinating match as the Partenopei welcome Jose Mourinho’s Roma to town. Both teams have been playing well this year, so neither will want to lose any ground this weekend.

However, Napoli remain the favourites to maintain their advantage atop the Serie A standings. Even an in-form Roma should not be able to stop them from accumulating three more points towards a potential scudetto because there has only been that one loss to Inter to an otherwise excellent record this season.

Roma Preview

However, the Giallorossi might make this one intriguing.

Mourinho appears to have made the decision to move on without Nicol Zaniolo, who appears to be departing the team. He does, however, have a few other excellent attackers, and Tammy Abraham is also getting back to form.

Roma should make a game of this, but it is unlikely that they will be able to defeat Napoli at home, something that no other team has done this season.

However, the visitors have narrowed the gap between themselves and the remaining top four, so Champions League qualifying may very well be in the cards. Even if this could end in a loss, Roma’s season is still looking promising!

1×2 Betting Odds

Both teams are in a very good form, but the home side has been another beast! They are sitting comfortably on the top and the visiting Roma side might find it difficult to overcome this Napoli hype!

Napoli is 12 points clear on the top and they are ‘the side’ in Italy’s top division! A high-flying Napoli who will play at home, are the favourites to win this @ 1.80.

Roma are undefeated in their last 5 matches, where they have picked up 4 wins and a draw. But despite all that, their odds of winning against the table toppers, makes them the underdogs @ 5.20.

The possibility of a draw and points shared between the two sides stands @ 3.99.

Total goals over/under

The odds that the total number of goals scored will be over 2.5, stands @ 2.03.

While the odds that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, stands @ 1.96.

Napoli and Roma are the two sides from Italy who have been in a great recent form, so expect a tight one as far as scorelines go!

Plus, Mourinho’s sides set up their shop in a very defensive manner, so expect more of that at the home of the table toppers!
