League leaders Napoli travel to the Stadio Olimpico in Serie A on Sunday, as they face Roma in the Derby del Sole.

The Partenopei have enjoyed life under coach Luciano Spalletti and have won all eight league games, as they mount a Scudetto challenge.

Roma, meanwhile, followed up a tight 1-0 defeat to Juventus last weekend with a humiliating 6-1 thrashing by Norwegian champions Bodo/Glimt in the Europa Conference League on Thursday, with the Lupi keen to quickly make amends.

Serie A LIVE – Roma v Napoli – Probable line-ups

Jose Mourinho is expected to make wholesale changes to the team that capitulated in Norway, with only Rui Patricio, Roger Ibanez, and Stephan El Shaarawy likely to retain their places. The clash could come too soon for Nicolo Zaniolo however.

Victor Osimhen is amongst the most prolific forwards in Serie A this season and will continue to lead the line for the Partenopei, as he seeks to add to his five goals.

Roma: Rui Patricio; Karsdorp, Mancini, Ibanez, Vina; Veretout, Pellegrini, Cristante; El Shaarawy, Abraham, Mkhitaryan.

Napoli: Ospina; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Koulibaly, Mario Rui; Ruiz, Anguissa, Zielinski; Politano, Osimhen, Insigne.
