Rafa Benitez’ men have won three and drawn two of their last five, making up for a slow start that saw two defeats in their opening four games. Last time out the club draw 1-1 with Atalanta.
Roma meanwhile have won 7 and drawn one of their opening 9 games with their only defeat at the hands of Juventus. The club have scored 16 and conceded just four.
Roma could be forgiven for having their mind elsewhere on Saturday with a Champions league clash with Bayern Munich looming. However manager Rudi Garcia has warned this weekend’s opponents that his side will be fully focused on the task at hand.
“Our only thoughts right now are on the game at Napoli,” Garcia said. “Once that match is over, we will think about the game at Bayern Munich.
“We need to bring home a good result.”
Last season the two clubs met four times with the honours even. Home form has dictated the winner last season with Napoli winning 1-0 at home in the league and 3-0 in the cup while Roma prevailed 3-2 in the cup meeting and won 2-0 in the league.
Saturday’s meeting will be the first time Roma and Napoli have met since clashes that led to a fan’s death from a shooting before the Italian Cup final in May.
Roma fans have been barred from game in in Naples although there are still concerns of attacks this weekend.
