Roma welcomed Napoli to the capital for a high stakes Derby del Sole. Roma are struggling to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season and fired Eusebio Di Francesco as they hoped to get the bump necessary to secure them a place in Europe’s top club competition. They brought in Claudio Ranieri, who recently lost his job at relegation-bound Fulham, as he looked to recapture the magic of 2009. The Roma-supporting Ranieri was previously in charge of the Giallorossi when they came within one point of winning Serie A, and hoped that he could galvanise the struggling side.
Napoli have taken 12 points out of an available 18 since returning from the winter break and have advanced to the quarter-finals in the UEFA Europa League after overcoming Red Bull Salzburg. While Napoli are 18 points behind Juventus, who seem set to win their eighth straight Serie A title, they have been impressive in their transition from Maurizio Sarri’s 4-3-3 to Carlos Ancelotti’s 4-4-2. Those who backed Napoli using their free betting tips would have been delighted with the outcome.
