Our prediction for this Serie A match:
There will be fireworks when Napoli and Roma take on each other at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona on Monday. The Neapolitans suffered a heart-breaking loss to Fiorentina on Matchday 32 to drop to third place in the standings. Luciano Spalletti’s troops are eager to stay in Scudetto race, and they have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at Roma. Cameroon international Anguissa is back from suspension, while all Di Lorenzo, Malcuit, Ounas, and Petagna have been struggling with injuries of late.
The Giallorossi, on the other hand, came from behind to beat rock-bottom Salernitana at the weekend. Since Jose Mourinho’s troops will go for a win as well, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on over 2.5 goals. Lorenzo Pellegrini served his one-game ban against Salernitana, while Leonardo Spinazzola has overcome his long-term injury.
