SCOTT PETERSON - Friday, May 17, 2013
Pride is on the line as Michael Bradley and AS Roma close out the 2012-2013 Serie A season versus SSC Napoli in the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday.
Bradley will look to bring an impressive inaugural season in a Roma shirt to a successful close by putting in another full 90 minutes of work for the Giallorossi, as he did last time out in a scoreless tie to AC Milan last time out.
Roma squandered a host of chances versus the Rossoneri and had to settle for a draw. Further exacerbating matters was a lack of discipline shown by captain Francesco Totti, who was shown a straight red for elbowing former Roma defender Phillippe Mexes in the second half.
That tie eliminated the Romans from qualifying for Europe next season in league play. However, they do have a derby date versus Lazio in the Coppa Italia to book their place.
Kickoff is set for Sunday evening at 9:45 p.m. local time.
