Match – Napoli vs Roma
Serie A LIVE Broadcast Details
The city most synonymous with the Maradona myth and legend will play host to an impassioned occasion on Sunday night, as his beloved former club take on potential Scudetto rivals Roma, separated by three points in the table.
With a qualification in Europa League now one step away, Gennaro Gattuso‘s squad is in a strong position in continental competition, but in the league, they are in need of a refresher after losing 3-1 at home to relentless leaders Milan last week.
Napoli has lost the fewest Serie A points from leading positions in 2020 (just four), while on the other hand, only city rivals Lazio have gained more points than Roma’s 20 when coming from behind over the same time period.
If the home team were to take the lead on a poignant night for their city, fireworks could reasonably be expected from free-scoring comeback kings Roma.
