SSC Napoli vs. AS Roma

Sunday, January 29, 2023 – 02:45 PM EST at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona


Serie A front runners Napoli feature in the penultimate game of the weekend’s Serie A schedule on Sunday afternoon when they clash with Roma and attempt to hold their place at the top of the table.

Napoli is undefeated in their previous four games inside 90 minutes, they’ve recorded three consecutive Serie A wins, and outside of a recent Coppa Italia exit at the hands of Cremonese, they seemingly own some unstoppable form.

Although their Sunday opponents are also in fine form, Napoli is unbeaten in 22 of their last 23 domestic outings. Furthermore, their home record shows seven consecutive Serie A wins, with two goals netted in six of those games.


Roma visits the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona following a 2-0 success at Spezia last weekend. This victory put them on a seven-game undefeated streak, and The Yellow-Reds have now gone seven games in all competitions without tasting defeat.

With that said, Roma is 16 points shy of matching Napoli’s 50 in the division, and it’s unlikely this squad will contend for anything more than a Champions League qualification spot this term.

But if one team can deliver a shock result at the Stadio Maradona, Roma undoubtedly owns the away form – undefeated in 7 successive away games – to threaten Napoli’s incredible form.

Pick and Prediction

The Derby del Sole has provided a collection of intense 90-minute battles in recent years. The previous four meetings between these two sides have delivered under 2.5 goals, with a mere five goals scored in all those games combined.

As Roma looks to claim 3rd-place in the table and Napoli needs to extend their table-topping points further with an AC Milan side in tow, expecting a low-scoring affair is a viable betting position. In addition, these two sides have allowed just 30 goals combined from 38 games played in the Serie A thus far.

FC Bayern Munich vs. Eintracht Frankfurt

Saturday, January 28, 2023 – 12:30 PM EST at Allianz Arena

Bayern Munich

The defending Bundesliga champions are being chased for their table-topping position by a pack of hungry German squads, as only seven points separate Bayern Munich from seventh-placed Wolfsburg. Sitting just three points clear of second-placed Union Berlin, the Bavarians have no room for error midway into the season.

Julian Nagelsmann’s squad welcomes Frankfurt to the Allianz Arena on Saturday following two consecutive draws, putting them at six tie games this season thus far.

However, Bayern’s undefeated run is at 10 games, as they’ve picked up seven wins and three draws since their last defeat. And with the best offensive (51 goals) and best defensive record (15 conceded) so far, there’s no reason to doubt the giants of German soccer moving forward.


Sitting comfortably in the fourth position of the Bundesliga table, Eintracht Frankfurt has enjoyed a positive season to date – having won nine of their 17 domestic meetings this term, as only Bayern, Union Berlin, and Borussia Dortmund have collected more victories.

The Eagles arrive at the Allianz Arena riding a five-game unbeaten streak, and with only one loss to their name from their last 11 games in all competitions, we should expect them to cause Bayern a multitude of problems this weekend.

Pick and Prediction

Bayern has claimed nine wins from their last 12 Bundesliga meetings with Frankfurt, and we’ve seen over 2.5 goals seven times during this stretch.

This fixture has regularly produced high-scoring affairs in recent years, and the previous clash between these sides saw Bayern claim a 6-1 win. And for this reason, taking the plus-money value on Bayern to win and both teams to score is a tempting wager to take a chance on.
