Our football match prediction:
Roma and Napoli face each other at Stadio Olimpico in the Serie A derby. The Romans aim to stay in the race for Scudetto, whilst the Neapolitans are eager to keep their 100% in the 2017/2018 season intact. The Giallorossi proved their worth in a 2-0 win over Milan in their last league fixture and it has to be noted that they are on a five-game winning run in all competitions ahead of Saturday’s football match against Napoli. The Partenopei recorded a routine 3-0 win over Cagliari on day 7, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the Stadio Olimpico clash against Roma. Anyhow, both Roma and Napoli are likely to go for a win in Saturday’s showdown in the “Eternal City” and we predict that both sides are going to find the net in the derby. In their last meeting in the Italian capital Napoli recorded a 2-1 win over Roma.
