With only eight matches in the books, it’s a bit silly to start table watching, but with Sassuolo losing to Inter Milan, Atalanta falling to Verona and Juventus being held in check by lowly Benevento, the results around the league certainly fell in Roma’s favor this weekend. A win today over Napoli would vault Roma into second place, three points behind league leading AC Milan and potentially two points ahead of Inter and Sassuolo.
The Derby del Sole is always a big deal, but a victory today would give Roma's ambitions some serious credence and set them up nicely for another tough multi-fixture week ahead.
