    • 10' Totti is playing today despite being criticised by the Roma fans after missing a penalty against Juventus on Monday.
    • 9' From our friends at Opta: 47 - Napoli have shared 47 draws against Roma in Serie A, only against Torino (50) have they drawn more games. Preview
    • 8' Napoli are getting a lot of the ball down the left hand side.
