The ‘Derby del Sole’ (the derby of the sun) is a special competition in Italian football. AS Roma and Napoli have traditionally been seen as the clubs that can compete with the traditional top clubs from Milan (Inter, AC Milan) and Turin (Juventus).
The joint battle against the clubs from the north first created fraternization between the fanatical supporters of both clubs, but in the 1980s, after Napoli stormed to the top with Diego Maradona, Napoli and Roma also became rivals.
There was initially no rivalry on the field today. Roma had something to make up for after last Thursday’s historic 6-1 defeat to FK Bodø/Glimt, but did not want to make it a spectacular game against Napoli.
The team from the capital of Italy, where Dutch right back Rick Karsdorp played the entire game, collapsed and that gave Napoli a dominance on the field and not great opportunities.
