Roma host the Italian capital Chievo on Thursday, in a match of the eighteenth day of Serie A, the last game of the year in Italy. The Romans come from a defeat in the leader’s field and know that they can not lose more points if they still want to fight for the title. Meanwhile, the Chievo who has been making a quiet championship, arrives in the capital on the best streak of the year and undefeated in the last three weeks.
AS Roma come to this game, after the weekend, have lost in the field of Juventus (0-1), despite having made an excellent display. This result left the Romans to 7 points of the leader and with only one of advantage over Napoli and Lazio. They return home now, where they defeated all the League parties that disputed this season and hope to return to the triumphs. Suman 11 win, 2 draws and 4 defeats in Serie A, with 36 goals scored and 17 received, being on par with Juve one of the best attacks of the competition. Also the Bosnian Edin Dzeko is one of the leaders of the table of scorers, with 12 so many, the same as Belotti and Icardi. For this match, Luciano Spalletti who can not count on injured Florenzi, has many doubts in the midfield, where you can risk the use of De Rossi and Nainggolan although both present some discomfort. Thus, the entry of Bruno Peres for the defense would be the only novelty in the eleven of the Italian technician.
Once Probable: Szczesny – Peres, Fazio, Rudiger, Emerson – Strootman, De Rossi – Salah, Nainggolan, Perotti – Dzeko.
Serie A Chievo arrives in the capital after beating Sampdoria (2-1), in the weekend’s matchday, in a quiet match, where they managed a two-goal lead in the first half and in The one that the visitors only marked in the discounts. This was the fourth consecutive game without losing for those of the north of Italy, third in Liga and the Chievo is now 10º in the table. They have 25 points, thanks to 7 wins, 4 draws and 6 defeats and are 8 points from the European posts and already to 16 of the zone of descent. They scored, to date, 18 goals, having received 17 and the Slovenian midfielder Valter Birsa is the top scorer of the team with 4 goals. For the Olympic party, Rolando Maran, coach of the team, does not have injured Gobbi and Hetemaj and the latter must be replaced in the eleventh by Rigoni, while Spolli must enter for the center of defense.
Once Probable: Sorrentino – Frey, Gamberini, Spolli, Cacciatore – Rigoni, Radovanovic, Castro, Birsa – Meggiorini, Pellissier.
The Chievo is assuming itself as one of the pleasant surprises of Serie A, arriving at this match in the best moment of the season. However, Roma are very strong in the Olympic, where they won every game and after losing in Turin they want to end the year with the return to the triumphs. Thus, the locals are clear favorites and taking into account the offensive numbers of Spalletti’s team, we can expect a game with many goals.
