Welcome to our Napoli vs Roma preview, predictions and head to head analysis. Napoli are in third place in the Italian Serie A league. Just 3 points clear of today’s rivals. Napoli have won 8 of their last 10 matches. However last weekend’s loss at struggling Bologna was a huge disappointment. They need to get back to winning ways again. Roma have been slightly inconsistent by their best standards. They were challenging for top spot in the league not many weeks ago, but their recent form has dipped and produced only 8 points from 6 matches. They must do better to stop the slide down the table.
