Football betting tips this weekend for Napoli – Roma
Just few days after the death of the club icon Diego Maradona, Napoli will host Roma at the Stadio San Paolo in Naples. This is a game from the 9th round of the Serie A. Let’s take a look at it in our football betting tips this weekend. Are you ready?
Home form improvement – this is Gennaro Gattuso’s main goal right now. Napoli lost their last two home games in the Serie A against Sassuolo and Milan, so this is Gattuso’s biggest problem right now – to fix the way his players perform at the San Paolo. This stadium should be a fortress for Napoli, but right now it doesn’t feel like this.
For Napoli this match arrives just few days after the passing of the club legend Diego Maradona. On Thursday the Azzurri faced Rijeka in Europa League and the match started with a minute of silence in Maradona’s honour. Napoli won this game with 2-0 with goals from Matteo Politano and Hirving Lozano.
At this moment Napoli are 6th in the Serie A with 14 points won and they need some wins here in order to move closer to the top again. Gattuso’s boys won just one of their last three matches in the league and this is what they will try to improve – their current shape.
Roma started this season much better compared to the last one. The Wolves are third in the standings and right now they look like a serious contender in the league. Paulo Fonseca’s team lost just one of its eight matches so far and won five of them. Last season was hard for Roma, but the board decided to stick with Fonseca. It seems it was the right decision.
That’s our football betting tips this weekend for the Serie A match between Napoli and Roma at the San Paolo. These two teams are among the best in Italy, so everything could happen between them. We expect some action and some goals here.
