Victor Osimhen’s Napoli will be welcoming Roma to the Stadio San Paolo in what is expected to be the most exciting game in the Serie A on Sunday.
In the last 26 Serie A meetings between these two teams, Napoli have won 9 games, while Roma have won 6 matches, with the other 11 games ending in a draw. Both teams have won 2 games each in their last 5 encounters.
Napoli will be without Naija Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen due to injury, while Amir Rrahmani and Elseid Hysaj tested positive or COVID-19. Midfielder Tiemoué Bakayoko is suspended for this tie. Roma, on the other hand, will be without Roger Ibañez, Chris Smalling, Davide Santon, and Nicolò Zaniolo due to injury, while Marash Kumbulla and Pietro Boer tested positive for COVID-19.
Roma are in fine form and Henrikh Mkhitaryan is firing on all cylinders, while Napoli lost their last home game to AC Milan. The home side will need redemption, but they have a huge mountain to climb in Roma. This will be a close encounter, but Napoli should edge it.
You can catch the game live on DSTV channel 208, SuperSport Variety 3 on Sunday November 29 2020, by 8:45 pm Naija time.
