What to expect from Roma vs. Napoli clash
Coach Gianluigi Donnarumma and his side have a busy week ahead of them, with both games against the Italian champions set to take place in the same day.
Coach Donnarums head coach Stefano Pioli will also be able to take on the task of ensuring his side’s chances of success are maximised by playing the home side.
The first game of this three-game campaign will be played at Stadio Olimpico, the venue where Roma’s Champions League victory over Juventus last season was celebrated.
It will be followed by a home friendly against Napoli on Wednesday and a away friendly against Roma on Saturday.
For Roma, the match will be the first of a three-match trip to Italy that will include a home fixture with Bologna on Thursday and a home clash with Torino on Friday.
Tottenham Hotspur will also take on Roma at Stade de Stade Marcel Astra, the same venue where the two sides met in the Champions League last season.
Spurs will be without their star man Dele Alli, who has been out with a knee injury since the defeat to Roma.
Meanwhile, Napoli are facing their first Champions League fixture since their 1-0 win over Juventus on Tuesday night, as they host Lazio on Saturday afternoon.
Lazio have not lost to Roma since 2009, the last time the two clubs met.
It remains to be seen how many points Roma are able to secure in the remaining fixtures of the campaign, as the Giallorossi are still on course for a record €3.5m in prize money.
