Napoli Vs Roma Live Stream October 28 2018 Kick Off 19:30 GMT
Napoli will be without Lorenzo Insigne who is nursing an injury in the chest due to a knock in the ribs he sustained in the PSG game.
Only Di Francesco’s former side Sassuolo have conceded more goals than the Giallorossi in the top 10 and despite two consecutive victories in the Champions League against Viktoria Plzen and CSKA Moscow, Roma continue to struggle domestically.
Last week’s embarrassing performance at the Stadio Olimpico against SPAL put Eusebio Di Francesco’s position at the club in danger, but the 3-0 victory against CSKA on Tuesday gives Di Francesco some much needed breathing room.
Arkadiusz Milik is expected to take Insigne’s place next to Dries Mertens in Napoli’s attack, which would give Roma’s quivery defence hard time.
As usual, Edin Dzeko will be the visitor’s main attacking weapon, as the Bosnian’s brace was the talking point in the 4-2 win at the San Paolo last season.
Meanwhile Javier Pastore is a doubt for Roma, while Patrik Schick, Diego Perotti and Rick Karsdorp are injured and will miss the trip to Naples.
