Roma vs Napoli Match Preview
Roma, with Claudio Ranieri back in charge eight years after his previous spell ended, may have a bit more incentive than Napoli in this match and are backed to gain an important win.
Napoli essentially have only one thing left to play for now this season – Europa League glory, with a forthcoming quarter-final against Arsenal, for they look highly likely to again finish runners-up in Serie A.
But for Roma, the domestic situation is more marginal. They are trying to overhaul either or both of the Milan clubs to finish in the top four and qualify again for the Champions League, in which they have reached the knockout stage in both of the last two seasons.
Ranieri, who got back into work quickly after a poor few months with Fulham, began with a home win over Empoli after replacing Eusebio Di Francesco but will have been disappointed to then lose by the same 2-1 scoreline away to SPAL just before the international break.
However, Roma have lost only once on their own pitch all season in Serie A, ironically also to SPAL, and with Napoli somewhat hit and miss since the end of January as their title hopes have disappeared, we will side with the Giallorossi to keep their top-four aspirations alive.
