Napoli vs Roma prediction

Both sides have not lacked goals this season and there is so much at stake for them, coupled with the fact that they are both coming off league defeats- could potentially make this one a cagey encounter.

Napoli’s home advantage may not play such a huge role and I predict a low-scoring game and a draw could be a likely outcome.
