Just once have Roma lost at home this season in league action, posting a W8 D4 L1 record in the capital. They have won five of their last six home games (D1).

They are currently on an eight-match undefeated streak of form on home soil, the same length as their current scoring streak at the Stadio Olimpico. Roma haven’t picked up clean sheet in any of their last ten home fixtures though, picking up just one all season on home turf. They have been potent in front of goal though.

They failed to score in three of the five games in that sequence. On their travels, Napoli are only W1 D1 L2 against other sides in the top six.

Napoli have averaged 1.5 goals per away game and they have been fairly strong at the back, shipping at under a goal per game on average. 64% of their road games have made it over the 2.5 goals mark this season. Napoli are undefeated currently in their last four road games, having been sitting level at halftime in 7 of their 13 away games. Seven of their eleven second-half goals away from home this season have come in the final fifteen minutes of matches. Napoli have the second best away record and the second best defensive record in this season’s Serie A.
