Napoli will take on Roma at the Diego Maradona Stadium on Monday evening, April 18. What can we expect from such a high-profile encounter? Full statistics and all current odds for the match can be viewed at 1xbet download.
The Neapolitans are third in Serie A with 66 points after 32 games played. AC Milan are 5 points adrift of the leaders, so Luciano Spaletti’s charges will focus all their efforts for the rest of the season in Serie A. There have been 58 goals scored and 26 conceded (only Inter are less). In the last five games, the home side have won three and lost twice, losing directly to the Rossonneri on home soil (0-1) in early March.
Last weekend, the Southerners lost again in front of their own fans, with a sensational 2-3 defeat to Fiorentina, scored by Dries Mertens and Victor Osimhen (1, Italian). Manchester United’s full-back Axel Tuanzebe has been added to Napoli’s ranks this winter. Behind him are centre-back Giovanni Di Lorenzo and forward Andrea Petagna.
Jose Mourinho’s side sit fifth in the Serie A table with 57 points after 32 games played. Juventus are 6 points adrift of fourth-placed Juventus and there is every chance of overtaking them to progress into the Champions League zone. The team have scored 53 goals and conceded 36. The Roma side are now in good form, with seven wins in their last eight league games. Last Sunday, the visitors beat Salernitana 2-1.
And last Thursday they celebrated their progression to the Conference League semi-finals, beating the Norwegian Bude Glimt 2-1 and 4-0 on aggregate. Only defender Leonardo Spinazzola is sidelined.
The teams have already met in the first round of the current domestic championship and that time the teams drew to nil. Such a draw is unusual for full-time matches between these clubs – on average they score 2.5 goals each.
Napoli vs Roma
The hosts are fighting for the Scudetto and any loss of points in 5 rounds before the end of the championship will greatly reduce their chances of becoming champions. The Neapolitans will surely want to rehabilitate themselves in front of their fans after the defeat in the last matchday, but they have their leaders still in place. “AS Roma are in good form, unbeaten in Serie A for the last 10 games and hope to advance to the Champions League. All factors are in place for a scoring exchange, and that’s what we’ll bet on.
