Napoli vs AS Roma: Preview, kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online – Serie A 2023/24

AS Roma are looking to close in on the top four in Serie A when they visit stuttering champions Napoli in the Derby del Sole at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona


AS Roma are looking to take a step closer to a return to the Champions League when they face champions Napoli in the Derby del Sole in Matchday 34 of Serie A.

The Giallorossi travel to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona buoyed by a last-gasp win over Udinese last time out, but have one eye on their upcoming Europa League semi-final against Bundesliga champions Bayer Leverkusen.

Napoli have endured a disastrous scudetto defence and find themselves in eighth, as they battle to even participate in European competition next season.

Napoli vs AS Roma: Predicted line-ups

As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Roma are likely to turn to Tammy Abraham in attack, with Paulo Dybala and Stephan El Shaarawy flanking him.

Edoardo Bove may come in for the suspended Leandro Paredes, whilst Diego Llorente also serves a ban and could be replaced by Chris Smalling. Striker Romelu Lukaku is unlikely to return to fitness in time after a recent injury.

Napoli have a full-strength squad to choose from and will likely go with the favoured front-three of Matteo Politano, Victor Osimhen, and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.

Former Roma duo Mario Rui and Juan Jesus are expected to feature in defence for the Partenopei.

Roma defensive pair Gianluca Mancini and Dean Huijsen are one booking away from suspension, in addition to Sardar Azmoun. Napoli, meanwhile, will lose Osimhen, Stanislav Lobotka, and Pasquale Mazzochi to bans with a yellow card.

Napoli predicted XI vs AS Roma (4-1-4-1): Meret; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Juan Jesus, Mario Rui; Anguissa, Lobotka, Zielinski; Politano, Osimhen, Kvaratskhelia.

AS Roma predicted XI vs Napoli (4-3-3): Svilar; Karsdorp, Mancini, Smalling, Angelino; Bove, Paredes, Cristante; Dybala, Abraham, El Shaarawy.
