The hosts will be looking to continue their amazing campaign in this term of Serie A. I Partionopei won 16, drew 2, and lost just 1 of 19 league fixtures so far in the season. Such a record, followed by a big decline of the two Milan teams and Juventus’ point-deduction, translates into a massive 12-point advantage at the top of the standings.
Napoli will be big favorites on Sunday but we have to say that this match comes at a very good moment for the Romans who are unbeaten this year. Jose Mourinho’s men won four and drew one of five games in all competitions in January.
The improvements in the team’s defensive performances have been the main catalyst for such a positive streak. La Lupa kept four clean sheets in the last five outings across competitions as a consequence. Let’s take a look at our top betting picks and predictions for this match.
Napoli vs Roma Betting Tips
Napoli slipped up just once in nine league fixtures on the home patch this term. They have a 26-7 goal difference in front of the home fans. Luciano Spallletti’s troops destroyed Juventus 5-1 in the previous league outing in Naples.
They have the league’s best offensive record with 46 goals scored and the league’s best defensive record with 14 goals conceded. It is very hard to find any downside to this I Partinopei squad.
Roma stands fifth on the league ladder at the moment. They took advantage of the rivals’ recent slipups to get to just a single point distance from the second-placed AC Milan. The top-four finish and a place in the UEFA Champions League is the ultimate goal for Jose Mourinho.
It will be very interesting to see how his side’s rock-solid defense will cope with the competition’s best offense in the most exciting match of the 20th round.

Napoli won eight and drew one of nine league games at home this term
Napoli is a big 3/4 favorite here and it is easy to find the reasoning given how strong they have been so far in the season. Their stellar form includes the UEFA Champions League games as well. We can still recall the magnificent home wins in the elite continental competition, including the one over English heavyweights Liverpool. With all due respect to Roma and their recent defensive form, we can hardly see them keeping hold of the red-hot I Partinopei on Sunday.
Napoli should control the match from the first to the final whistle and we will back HT/FT Napoli/Napoli pick as the primary betting option at the 7/4 odds.
Osimhen is the league’s top scorer with 13 goals to his name
Roma has been tough to break down in recent outings but the likes of AC Milan exploited their defensive weaknesses earlier this month in a 2-2 stalemate at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. Napoli owns the best attacking record in the league and they have the competition’s top scorer in their ranks. His name is Victor Osimhen and he has been on a phenomenal run of form lately.
The Nigerian forward bagged four goals in the last three appearances for I Partinopei in Serie A. We can find the value in backing Victor Osimhen to score the first goal of the game at the 4/1 odds.
