Rafa Benitez Napoli have been unbeaten since losing 3-2 to Roma in the Coppa Italia. Unfortunately for Napoli they have drawn a few games against lower tier teams that has hampered their charge for a Serie A Title, realistically the title is either Juventus or Roma's but if Napoli beat Roma tomorrow they could throw a serious spanner in the works for the Romans. Napoli are a great home team winning eight of the last ten and unbeaten at home since November. With Higuain, Callejon, Hamsik there is some serious talent up front for Napoli and there will be a special atmosphere at the Stadio San Paolo as always.
Roma have been a surprise package this season, under ManagerGarcia the team has been just that a team. With the ageless Totti, Gervinho and Ljacic up front and the strength in midfield of Strootman and De Rossi the whole season has been based on being hard to beat and playing as a unit. Its been an exceptional season so far with the Roman's only losing one game so far this year. There was a 3-0 loss to Napoli in the Coppa Italia and i'm sure that one will be fresh in the mind of the Roma team as they take the field tomorrow, the other objective of course will be to continue to keep tabs on Juventus. If Roma continue to win then they can put some pressure on Juve but any slips and juventus will surely just march to another Serie a title.
Another cracking game in Serie A tomorrow with Roma traveling to Napoli, there could be a bit of spice in this one as both teams played two good games against each other in the Coppa Italia. Although Napoli have been excellant at home they will face a Roma team that have been exceptionally tough to break down. I think that we will see two good teams go at it tomorrow and I hope that we get a good game, Napoli though have been money at home and I'm going to back the home team to inflict just the second league defeat on Roma.
