From last 5 home games they gained just 4 points. In March they were hosting Juventus (1:1) and Sampdoria (0:2) in Serie A as well as Fiorentina (0:2) in Europa League. They lost contact to Juventus and now they must fight for the 2nd place with Lazio Roma, Sampdoria, Fiorentina and Napoli who are really close to each other. Roma won last three home games against SSC Napoli in all competitions, but earlier this season they lost 2:0 to them. There are few injured players like M. Pjanić, K.

SSC Napoli team after great start of the new year (6 wins in first 7 games) are without a win in last 4 league games. They also lost last three away games in Serie A. From last 5 games played they gained just 5 points and that’s even worse than Roma’s six points. They won last 3 games against Roma, but all this games were played in front of their home fans. In away table SSC Napoli are placed on the 5th place with: 6 wins, 3 draws, 5 loses and 21 points gained. They are also on the 5th place in Italian Serie A table, 6 points behind the 2nd Roma. They must at least draw in this game if they want to keep close contact to UCL places. G. Higuain who scored 13 goals in Italian Serie A this season is best scorer in the team. He played just one National game during the international break, so he shouldn’t be tired. SSC Napoli lost last three away games (3:1 against Palermo, 1:0 against Torino and 2:0 against Verona). There are no new injures in the team after Nation Teams games.
