Our match prediction:
After their draw against BATE Borisov AS Roma qualified for the knock out stage of the Champions League. On Sunday afternoon AS Roma will travel towards Naples for the important game against Napoli. Both teams are in the top region of the Italian Serie A; AS Roma is placed 4th with 28 points and Napoli 3rd having 31 points. Napoli was working an impressive streak but surprisingly lost against Bologna and with that loss lost their number 1 position. AS Roma on the other hand is struggling and didn't win any of their last 5 official games. The last time Napoli didn't win at home against AS Roma was in 2011. We predict Napoli to beat AS Roma 2-0. Napoli's form in combination with the home advantage won't have a lot of trouble with AS Roma. Serie A topscorer Higuain is in the form of his life.
