Rafa Benitez: Will take his Napoli side to Roma

The encounter at Rome's Stadio Olimpico has been brought forward due to a planned public protest - against the government's austerity measures - scheduled for that Saturday in the Italian capital.

Rome prefect Giuseppe Pecoraro had requested to the Italian football league to make a change in dates with the two events requiring significant police presence.

Roma have won all of their Serie A games and lead the standings with a two-point advantage over Napoli.
