This is a very big game in what is the latest edition of Derby del Sole. Jose Mourinho’s Roma have been fairly frustrating this season, despite being improved. However, some major long-term injuries could be an issue for the capital city club. They did earn a 1-0 win at Sampdoria last weekend to move into the top four ahead of this weekend’s round of fixtures.
They now face a Napoli side that, under the management of Luciano Spalletti, have been absolutely exceptional across all competitions so far this season. The Neapolitans sit at the top-of-the-table, and they have been ruthless in front of goals in both Serie A and the UEFA Champions League. Napoli will be confident of going to a still unconvincing Roma side and winning at Stadio Olimpico.
Although Roma have looked good under Mourinho in recent weeks, Napoli look unstoppable at the moment. Spalletti will regard this as a crucial marker if his side are to live up to their favorites tag at the Stadio Olimpico. Unsurprisingly, based on their dominant winning run, Napoli have hit a hot run in front of goal, with a handy 25 league goals, the most scored in Serie A so far this season.
However, despite their power up front, Napoli have struggled to keep a clean sheet. There have been no successful shutouts in their last six games in all competitions, and they now face a Roma side who have scored in all of their last five games.
Spalletti will not be happy with the number of goals his team is conceding at the moment. However, he will still have confidence against his old team as Napoli are proving capable of outclassing any team in Europe so far this season.
Mourinho will have to figure out a way to beat a team that seems unbeatable, both in Serie A and European competition. Spalleti’s squad will visit Rome in search of extending their amazing run.
