What's the scouting report on Napoli? Anybody who's a Serie A fan care to give us some things to watch for in this game?
Make sure the volume is low:
Hamsik and Cavani are going to be their main players in offense. They're missing a key player that makes their back 3 work, so hopefully that helps us a lot. Bradley is going to have his hands full in the midfield since Napoli play with 5 midfielders.
Really need the win today. Inter, Juve, and Fiorentina all lost today, so a win would put Roma at 3rd.
Roma (4-3-3): Goicoechea; Piris, Burdisso, Castan, Balzaretti; Pjanic, De Rossi, Bradley; Lamela, Destro, Totti
Hope Destro has a big game today. I like him a lot.
Didn't really want to watch this game because I'm also a fan of Napoli. I hope Bradley peforms well today.
I didn't know that Gary Neville spoke Italian.. despite this being on quite late here in Qatar, will try and see this, at least the 1st half...
This is a really big game... Derby del Sole if you didnt know as well.
Should be a battle and pretty high scoring.
the only thing better than a fish derby is a fish and soccer derby!
4' Cavani scores after a through ball splits the CB's. Classy finish. 1 - 0 Napoli
Italian commentator giving Bradley some of the blame on that goal for sitting back too far and not challenging on the buildup.
6' Bradley lost his mark and Napoli wastes the attack with numbers.
I agree with them. He could've applied a bit more pressure.
Bradley wins the header at midfield, but the ball falls to Napoli, Bradley is at midfield and leaves his feet to try and cut out a pass, but he misses. Napoli then counters with the Napoli player splitting the defense with a pass int he box that is nicely finished outside of hte boot off the GK leg.
Wow, this ref isn't calling anything.
I don't remember seeing MB at LM before.
Bradley did have a sluggish attempted slide tackle which opened up tons of space and time for Pandev. De Rossi wasn't great either.
10' Brutal FK from Totti and a limp follow up shot from De Rossi
I thought the problem was he was too far up and gambled by leaving his feet.
At any rate, he needs to play his man tighter. He usually gets better as the match goes on so I expect better play from him 2nd half.
Just tuning in in the 13th minute and Roma's already down a goal...
13' De Rossi looks physically ill and he's playing like it too
Isn't Osvaldo out with the flu?
