SSC Napoli vs AS Roma - Competition: Italian Serie A
Match date: 1 November 2014
Kick Off Time: 14:00 BST
Venue: Stadio San Paolo, Napoli

SSC Napoli team started the season with ups and downs. The squad, that president De Laurentis put together, looks like not the best to fight vs Roma and Juventus for the scudetto. The new signed players during the summer transfer period like K. Koulibaly or midfielder David Lopez, didn’t bring the necessary quality to the team. Also players like Higuain and Hamsik were not offering their best performance, except in the last home match against Hellas Verona (6-2), and the early knock out from the UEFAChampions League didn’t help coach Benitez to start this season in the right way. Anyway, Saturday afternoon the San Paolo stadium will be crowded to support their stars and beat the AS Roma, as it happened in the last 2 matches played in Napoli.
After losing against Bayern Munich and drawing away against Sampdoria, the Roma found back to winning at home in the last round against Cesena and looks forward to meet SSC Napoli on the weekend. Rudi Garcia is doing a great job so far, even without availability of the entire squad, due to injuries of Castan, Strootman and Keita. In Napoli “the capital team” won’t make any discount to the home team even if they will play an important Champions League match in Munich next week. Garcia will try to recover Iturbe and Keita from the 1st minute and he should have also a permission from the doctor to give the defender Castan some minutes during the match.

Probable lineups:
Napoli: Rafael – Maggio, Albiol, Koulibaly, Ghoulam – David Lopez, Inler – Callejon, Hamsik, Mertens – Higuain.
Roma: Skorupski – Torosidis, Manolas, Astori, Cole – Pjanic, de Rossi, Nainggolan – Florenzi, Totti, Gervinho.
