Bringing together Serie A's highest scoring home team and most prolific away side, Al Hain-Cole is expecting plenty of goals in this blockbuster clash

Third-placed Napoli will be hoping to gain ground on second-placed Roma when they travel to the Stadio Olimpico for Saturday’s big Serie A clash.

Boasting the best away record in the league this season, Maurizio Sarri’s men are available at 11/5 (3.20) with Paddy Power to close the gap on their opponents by securing a sixth win in seven unbeaten matches on the road.

However, the Giallorossi have won all 12 of their home matches so far this campaign, and are even money (2.00) favourites to move to within four points of leaders Juventus by coming out on top for the fifth consecutive home game against this opposition.

Just one of the last 11 encounters between this pair has resulted in a draw, but you can get odds of 12/5 (3.40) on them cancelling each other out on this occasion.

Although the Scudetto appears increasingly likely to end up with Juventus yet again, these two sides have provided more than their fair share of entertainment this season.

As the two top-scoring teams in the division with 117 goals between them after 26 matches, goalmouth action is unlikely to be in short supply when they come face-to-face in the capital.

While Luciano Spalletti’s men boast the best goals to game ratio in the league with three per match, their guests’ return of 30 goals in 12 games on the road is seven more than the next most prolific away side despite playing one fewer fixture.

When you also consider that the hosts have gone four games without a clean sheet and the Partenopei have conceded in 12 of their last 13 away games, goals at both ends seem inevitable in this encounter.

All in all, odds of 5/6 (1.83) are not to be missed on over 2.5 goals being scored and both sides finding the net, just as occurred when Roma ran out 3-1 winners in October’s reverse fixture in Naples.
