Napoli will play against AS Roma in Serie A and we got Today’s football prediction for the match. The game is on Sunday, July 5 from 20:45 UK at Stadio San Paolo.
Napoli is in 6th place with 45 points after 29 matches in Serie A. The club will play in Europa League next season after winning Coppa Italia. In the final, the team of Gennaro Gattuso beat Juventus after penalties. Then the Parthenopeans won their next two games in the league against Verona and Spal. Their last clash was away from home against Atalanta and they lost it 2:0. This was the first loss for Napoli after the pandemic break but it doesn’t matter after the winning of the cup.
AS Roma is in 5th place with 48 points after 29 games. The Wolves will fight for their place in the standings and will miss the Champions League next season because Atalanta has 12 more points than them. Paulo Fonseca’s team started with a very hard victory against Sampdoria 2:1 at home after two goals from Edin Dzeko. However, after that Roma lost their next two matches in Serie A without even scoring a goal. First, Milan beat them in San Siro with 2:0 and their last game was at Olimpico where Udinese beat them 0:2. If they continue with this bad form they can even miss European tournaments next season because the eight-team in the standings Verona has only 6 fewer points than them.
Napoli lost their last clash but it was against one of the best teams in Serie A this season and they played away from home. AS Roma is in a free fall and with what we saw in their last 2 matches I will not be surprised if they lost the third game in a row. However, I expect a goal from the Wolves because 3 matches without even scoring one goal is too much for a team in the top 5. I don’t doubt that Napoli will score either against the awful defense of Roma. Today’s football prediction: BTTS
