Roma Vs Napoli.
The so-called Sunshine Derby, from the name of the highway connecting the two cities and the sunny shape of Southern Italy to whom both cities belong, usually is also a big fight. Missing crowds will possibly mean less agonism, but not a lack of competitiveness. Napoli did a huge feat by beating AC Milan at home last week, and now are fully running for a Champions League spot, that last one that was occupied by AS Roma consistently until 3 weeks ago, when they had lost to Milan and gave their position to Atalanta.
As you see, it's like a huge round-robin, and couldn't be different considering that there are 6 teams within 5 points racing for 3 Champions League spots. Roma are back from a long trip from Ukraine in Europa League, and in spite of the 3-0 in the first leg, such disruption in the weekly preparation of the game is heavily affecting the performance. It was clear about Milan last week, losing to Napoli after playing in Manchester.
And indeed Napoli are gonna make the most of this long full week of preparation, having back all together Dries Mertens, Victor Osimhen, and Hirving Lozano, something that didn't happen since October! In every big away game, Napoli have always been able to keep a low score: 0-1 and 1-0 in San Siro against Milan and Inter, 2-0 against Juventus in the Supercup. They will put up a fight as the one against the Rossoneri, and the Under 2.5 Goals is fantastically priced.
Predictions: Under 2.5goals.
