Dries Mertens leads Napoli to a win over Roma

Napoli faced Roma in the Serie A game and before the match, it was difficult to point out the favorite. In the Champions League, both teams are still fighting for a place, so every point is worth its weight in gold. 

The Azzurri maintained their superiority as Dries Mertens led them to victory. In the previous meeting, the Azzurri triumphed 4-0.

In the 23rd minute, Piotr Zieliński had a chance to open the score, but the ball after his shot passed the right post. Four minutes later with Mertens giving Napoli the lead, it was already 0:1. 

The Belgian showed off with a phenomenal shot from a free-kick. Soon after, he doubled his goal tally.

Mertens took advantage of Matteo Politano’s pass in the 34th minute, and with a head shot increased Napoli’s lead. 

Roma got bolder going forward but were unable to take advantage of their situations. The most dangerous opportunities came from Bryan Cristante and Lorenzo Pellegrini.

The second half – to put it mildly – did not impress. The result was kept until the end of the match.

Roma – Napoli 0-2 (0-2)
