Roma vs Napoli

Probable starting eleven:Roma: De Sanctis; Maicon, Benatia, Castan, Dodo; Pjanic, De Rossi, Strootman; Florenzi, Totti, GervinhoNapoli: Reina; Maggio, Albiol, Britos, Armero; Inler, Behrami; Callejon, Hamsik, Insigne; HiguainDerby match in Italy Serie A, first placed Roma against second placed Napoli. I expect an interesting match at Stadio Olimpico. It is very hard to predict the winner on this match.Roma managed to start excellent under relative unknown coach Rudi Garcia who has guided them to seven victories out of seven, with 20 goals scored and just one conceded. The new signings Gervinho, Ljajic, Strootman, Maicon, Benatia and other were very well integrated in the system of play that practice Garcia. Roma managed to outplay Livorno, Verona, Parma, Lazio, Sampdoria, Bologna and Inter and occupy the top of the table with 21 point. For this match coach Garcia has one player suspended – the defender Federico Balzaretti. Most probably Dodo will replace him. The striker Mattia Destro is long-term injury victim. There is a positive news too, as the team is boosted by the return of right-back Douglas Maicon.Napoli are on the second place, but also have a respectable record – six wins and just one draw. They have a maximal effect when the away matches are in question – three wins on three matches. Here are the results:28.09.2013. Genoa – Napoli 0:222.09.2013. Milan – Napoli 1:231.08.2013. Chievo – Napoli 2:4The strikers are in excellent form and they have scored 15 goals of the total of 18 that Napoli scored. Gonzalo Higuain, Marek Hamsik, Goran Pandev and Jose Callejon are in good form. The last three mutual games at Stadio Olimpico finished with balanced results – both teams have one win, while the points were shared on one match. Here are the results:19.05.2013. Roma – Napoli 2:128.04.2012. Roma – Napoli 2:212.02.2011. Roma – Napoli 0:2I expect draw.
