Roma-Napoli switched to a Friday

The big Week 8 clash between leaders Roma and Napoli will be played on Friday 18 October – 24 hours earlier than previously scheduled.

There was a risk that the tie could be postponed completely or switched to Naples because of a planned protest in the capital on Saturday 19 October which will require a significant police presence.

However, the decision has now been taken for the tie to take place a day earlier. It is set to kick off at 20.45 hours local time.

Roma are top of the table after winning all seven of their League games so far, while the Azzurri are just two points adrift in joint second with Juventus.
