Roma and Naples are set to meet again in the Champions League, while Fiorentina and Udinese are also in the mix for a place in next season’s competition.
La Repubblias, the club of the legendary Italian football legend Antonio Conte, and Napolitano have already clinched the Serie A and Coppa Italia treble with a 2-0 win over Atalanta.
The Giallorossi, who have lost only once in their last 16 matches, are currently second in Serie A with seven points.
Napoli are in a similar position to their hosts with five points, while Roma are just one point off the leaders with five.
But the two sides are not yet certain to play out the tie on Thursday, with the Italian champions’ trip to Naples set to be postponed due to the outbreak of the Ebola virus.
“This game will be postponed.
I’m convinced that it will be decided on Thursday night,” Napoli’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis said after their 3-0 victory over Fiorendina.
“The only chance to be sure is on Thursday,” he added.
Meanwhile, Roma are still struggling to find a replacement for the injured Stefano Sturaro, who is out with an ankle injury.
The former Lazio midfielder is out of the squad, with only Zdenek Zeman in the starting XI.
“Stefano Sturari is out, but we have a good mix of players in our squad,” Roma coach Marco Bentini said.
“We have a new centre-half, a new midfielder, a striker, a goalkeeper, two strikers and two defenders.”
“We’ll see who is fit for the game,” De Laurentio said.
“He has a long recovery.
We’ll see in the next couple of days if he’s fit or not.”
Roma also missed out on signing former Milan striker Diego Maradona for a fee of €50m, which has been kept secret by the club.
The Gialloblu have been struggling to cope with injuries this season, as the likes of Daniele De Rossi, Mauro Icardi and Andriy Shevchenko have all departed.
