Napoli vs Roma predictions, tips, lineups and betting odds (Serie A - 3.3.2018)
Serie A leaders Napoli welcome Roma to the Stadio San Paolo in a mouth-watering clash on Saturday night. Who will claim the bragging rights? This article contains our Napoli vs AS Roma betting preview with predictions, betting tips, probable line-ups, team news, highest odds, bookmakers' exclusive promotions and no deposit bonuses on the Serie A weekend!


Napoli have won ten straight Serie A matches to go into this one topping the table and have kept a clean sheet in 6 of their last 8 league matches. Juventus sit 4 points below but they have a game in hand. The Partenopei come into the match on the back of a 0-5 win over Cagliari and a three-match winning streak across competitions. Anyway, their 2-0 victory at Leipzig was not enough to progress in Europa League, as the german outfit won 3-1 the first leg in Naples.

Maurizio Sarri has only a fresh injury concern as captain Marek Hamsik did not train with the squad because of illness. Should the Slovakian miss out, Piotr Zielinski is expected to replace him and join Allan and Jorginho in the middle of the park. No changes are expect up front, where Lorenzo Insigne, Dries Mertens and Josè Callejon will lead the line. The back four is also likely to remain unchanged as Raul Albiol, Kalidou Koulibaly, Mario Rui and Elseid Hisay should all feature from the off. Faouzi Ghoulam and Vlad Chiriches remain sidelined, while Arkadiusz Milik is closing in on a return to first-team action.

Roma sit fifth after an inconsistent season. After a run of three wins in a row, the Giallorossi have suffered losses to Shakhtar Donetsk in Champions League (2-1 in Ukraine) and AC Milan in Serie A (0-2 at home) last week. As a result, Eusebio Di Francesco's men slipped out of the top-four in Serie A and desperately need to earn points here. As to direct encounters, Roma fell to a 1-0 defeat last time the sides met in October but caused an upset at this ground  last season in October 2016 (1-3).

Boss Eusebio Di Francesco also has an injury concern in midfield as Lorenzo Pellegrini is a major doubt. As consequence, the starting trio will include Daniele De Rossi, Kevin Strootman and Radja Nainggolan. Up front, the youngster Cengiz Under should retain his starting berth, as well as the central striker Edin Dzeko. The likes of Diego Perotti and Stephan El Shaarawy are in contention for the left winger spot. In defense, Federico Fazio should partner Kostas Manolas at the heart, with Alessandro Florenzi and Aleksandr Kolarov playing as full backs. Juan Jesus and Bruno Peres provide further options.
