Roma have won the last five matches, but whether Napoli will stop the wolves on November 29 – we have prepared our prediction. Who will be stronger?
“Napoli” did not start in the best way in the championship – Gennaro Gattuso ‘s team after eight rounds is only on the sixth line in the table. Until the situation became critical for the Neapolitans – the Champions League zone is at a distance of two points, which is quite possible to win back today. The Milan leader is already six points ahead.
In the last matches of the championship, “Napoli” had serious problems – in the sixth round there was a defeat 0: 2 from “Sassuolo”. Then, not without difficulty, the “parthenopeans” beat Bologna 1: 0 away, but again stumbled in the last round, losing 1: 3 to Milan – this is the third defeat in eight league matches.
In the Europa League, Napoli feels more confident – after four rounds the club is leading the group. However, the question of reaching the playoffs remains open – Real Sociedad and AZ have only two points less. On Thursday, Napoli beat Rijeka 2: 0 without encountering any resistance.
“Roma” clearly expects to rehabilitate for the failure last season, as a result of which the Romans were left without the Champions League – by the start of the ninth round, Paulo Fonseca’s team is coming up in third place in the table. The Wolves are just one point behind the second Sassuolo, two points more than the first Milan, but behind are Juventus, Inter, Napoli and Atalanta, which will surely add more.
In the last round, Roma beat Parma 3-0 at home quite easily, missing several key players. Thus, the Romans secured their third victory in a row in Serie A. In general, their streak without defeats in the championship reached the mark of seven matches, if we approach the statistics purely formally, because the defeat to Verona in the first round was technical.
In the Europa League last week, Roma beat Cluj 2-0 away without any problems, thus securing a ticket to the playoffs.

“Napoli” are inexpressive in the last matches and risk losing a few more positions in the table if today they are again left without a victory. Such an alignment is unlikely to suit the team, so it makes sense to expect an active attacking game from the hosts today, in which very high-quality players are gathered.
Roma have gained excellent shape, but their last rivals were in a serious crisis, so there is no point in overestimating the strength of the wolves yet. “Napoli” will be incredibly motivated, “Roma” has problems in defense, the hosts are quite capable of earning three points.
We believe that guests have no chance. Forecast – victory for Napoli . BC Winline offers such an outcome with odds 2.21
