Roma vs Napoli – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Roma Double Chance (1/2)

  • Roma have won eight and drawn one of their last nine competitive assignments on home soil.
  • Napoli were beaten in four of their last six matches in all competitions.

Napoli’s rotten campaign lurched to a new low in midweek when they were beaten 4-0 by Frosinone in the Coppa Italia and the struggling champions could come unstuck again when they visit a Roma side in the midst of a lengthy unbeaten surge at home.

Roma vs Napoli Team News

Roma

Houssem Aouar, Paulo Dybala, Chris Smalling and Tammy Abraham are sidelined for Roma through injury ahead of the weekend. Roma were well beaten in a 2-0 reverse at Bologna in their last league fixture.

Predicted Lineup for Roma: Patricio – Mancini, Llorente, Ndicka – Kristensen, Pellegrini, Paredes, Cristante, Spinazzola – Lukaku, El Shaaraway

Napoli

Napoli will be without injured trio Andre Zambo Anguissa, Elif Elmas and Mathias Olivera on Saturday. The Partenopei fielded a shuffled team against Frosinone in midweek though their 4-0 loss in Tuesday's cup tie was still a shock.

Predicted Lineup for Napoli: Meret – Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Jesus, Natan – Lindstrom, Lobotka, Zielinski – Politano, Kvaratskhelia, Osimhen

Confirmed lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to Watch – Romelu Lukaku

Romelu Lukaku returns from suspension for Roma this weekend and the prolific Belgian centre-forward will be keen to make up for lost time when he faces Napoli. The 30-year-old managed to net three goals in four appearances and Lukaku is sharp enough in the final third to do some more damage on Saturday.
