Napoli vs AS Roma Prediction and Betting Preview, 05 Jul 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-1
One of the best teams in Italy and indeed, Europe over the last couple of years, Roma have been below-par this term, struggling to churn out positive results on a regular basis. La Lupa are struggling to meet the bar they have set for themselves the previous seasons.
Match status: 2019-20 Serie A - Matchweek 30
Kick-off:
Venue: San Paolo (Naples)
Perhaps their dip in form can be attributed to the club’s poor handling of transfer affairs. The transfer policy at Roma has been pretty disturbing. Over the last two years, they have let go of some of their best players to rival clubs.

Their exploits in the 2017/2018 edition of the Champions League is one that will live long in their memories. Roma famously sent Barcelona crashing from the tournament in a heated quarterfinal clash at the Stadio San Paolo. Manolas headed home the goal that handed them a ticket to the semifinals of the competition that year.

Now, Manolas turns out for Napoli with Gli Azzurri pitching the Greek defender in the summer of 2018. Many other top players have exited the club since then. With a pretty weak squad, Roma will be looking to topple Napoli in a crunch Serie A clash in Naples on Sunday night.

Napoli vs AS Roma Team News

Playing out an underwhelming season, Napoli currently sit sixth on the standings having garnered 45 points from 29 games. A whopping 15 points adrift the Champions League places, the Parthenopeans will now turn their attention to securing a top-six finish.

Scheduled to take on high-flying Atalanta and their goal-loving attacking frontline last time out, Napoli must have been scared shitless as they headed out of the tunnel of the illustrious Atleti Azzurri d’Italia. They were required to be at their utmost best to stand any chances against this foe.

Matching Atalanta toe-to-toe throughout the game, Gli Azzurri will feel hard done   by the final result of the game as they were dispatched by La Dea. Failing to take their chances when they arrived, Napoli were comfortably beaten 2-0 as they headed home empty-handed.

Looking to strengthen their hold on fifth-place, Roma welcomed Udinese to the Stadio Olimpico, with every intent of sweeping the opposition aside. Headed into the game as huge favorites, La Lupa fell short of expectations.

Profligacy being their undoing, the home side failed to convert any of their chances in a fiercely-contested affair in Rome. They were made to pay for their horrific displays with Udinese’s Lasagna and Nestorovski getting on the scoresheet to condemn La Lupa to a surprise 2-0 defeat.

Here, we will be seeing two Europa League faithful go head-to-head, looking to strengthen their chances for a top-six finish. Roma currently hold a three-point lead over Napoli and defeat in this fixture could see them relinquish fifth spot to the Parthenopeans.

Also, Gli Azzurri cannot afford to lose this game to avoid plummeting down the standings. AC Milan and Verona are lurking around the corner, waiting for a Napoli slip to leapfrog them into the final Europa League spot.

AS Roma are heading into this game on the back of a two-game losing streak. More worryingly for La Lupa, they failed to score in each of these games.
