Napoli show no signs of letting up in their bold bid to wrestle the Serie A title from Juventus and are fancied to see off Roma at Stadio San Paolo on Saturday night.
The Light Blues are four points clear of Juve following a run of 10 straight wins in Italy’s top flight, although the Old Lady do have a game in hand.
There is no room for error as we reach the business end of the campaign, so another victory here is hard to oppose.
A Look At Napoli’s Betting Odds
Napoli can focus all of their attention on this competition after crashing out of Europe and showed a ruthless streak when romping to a 5-0 success at Cagliari on Monday.
It was a positive sign that attacking stars Jose Callejon, Dries Mertens, Marek Hamsik and Lorenzo Insigne all hit the target that night, before defender Mario Rui completed the rout.
Sarri commented on the club website: “Looking at the standings, I think we’re doing an amazing job, but it’s also unknown territory for us.
“We’ll see how we handle ourselves over the next few months, considering that we’ve never been in this sort of position before.
“Our lead over Juventus doesn’t count for much. We’re going to have to scrap it out point by point and Juventus are a juggernaut of a team.
“We have 12 games to play in which every moment and every detail could make the difference – luck too sometimes.”
It is easy to spot the hunger and desire radiating from those quotes, as Napoli chase a first Scudetto since the days of Diego Maradona back in 1990.
Looking at the Napoli vs Roma odds, we like 6/5 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game.
A Look At AS Roma’s Betting Odds
Roma are down in fifth place, 19 points adrift of the leaders, following last weekend’s 2-0 home loss to Milan, which was their sixth defeat of the season in Serie A.
Surprisingly, five of those reversals have come at Stadio Olimpico, although it may be significant that their sole away loss was against Juventus.
Eusebio Di Francesco’s side showed mental and defensive frailties when going down 2-1 at Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League recently, being overwhelmed in the second half after leading at the break.
Like Shakhtar, Napoli rely on pace and movement up front to break teams down and we feel they may just be too hot for Roma in that part of the field.
Insigne marked his 250th appearance for Napoli with a goal on Monday and has now scored 61 times in six seasons at the club.
He also netted in an away win over the Giallorossi back in October and gets the nod at 7/2 to break the deadlock again here in our Napoli vs Roma betting tips.
