With the aim of approaching Juventus leader, the AS Roma team jumps on the lawn of the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris, in the resumption of football in Italy, to face an always complicated Genoa.
Those headed by Ivan Juric did not close in a good way in December, as Genoa was defeated in 3 of the 5 games played, where they barely achieved a single victory. So low was the team’s production, to the point that they have not scored in four of those last five games. Of course, this Sunday they want to change history and more at home, where they have become strong and if not, ask the leader Juventus, who was defeated 3-1 in the month of November.
Meanwhile, Luciano Spalletti’s leaders have come up with three wins in their last five Serie A games and this has allowed him to remain in second place with 38 points, four fewer than the leader and still in Rome Are still lamenting that defeat just before the leaders, which was the only one in the month of December.
Spalleti has to work away from home, where they have barely got a win in their last 4 away games, with two defeats and a draw, but they know that if they want to give home to the leader, this has to change since now.
It must be said, that Roma were easy winners in the last four meetings of Serie A against Genoa; Also that the Romans have won in 3 of their last 4 visits to the Ferraris Luigi and although this does not play much, since in the field they are eleven against eleven, we believe that if it can influence in the mentality of the Roman players and If we add that the bow has closed to Genoa, because it makes us incline to the three points of the visit.
Genoa: Perin; Izzo, Burdisso, Munoz; Lazovic, Rigoni, Cofie, Laxalt; Ninkovic, Simeone, Ocampos.
AS Roma: Szczesny; Peres, Manolas, Fazio, Rudiger; Strootman, De Rossi; Perotti, Nainggolan, El Shaarawy; Dzeko.
