So far, only the opening match brought victory to “Roma” and her new head coach, and in his field the Romans and did not win at all. Will the upcoming match with Verona be a turning point? Read the forecast of our site’s analysts
Tournament: Italy. Serie A. The 4th round.
Venue: Olimpico, (Roma)
Date of the match: September 16, 2017
Football. Italy. Roma – Verona.
What is happening with the “Roma” – to the end is unclear. Let them sell Liverpool Salah, but without the Egyptian, the “wolf” will give odds to a good half of the European grandees. But there is absolutely no result yet. Even the victory over Atalanta in the first round is not indicative – Kolarov scored with a free kick, and it was the only stroke on target. Following cheerful – home defeat from “Inter” (1: 3) and draw 0: 0 with “Atletico” in the Champions League, where the advantage of the Spaniards was very serious, and “Roma” again just hit the shots on goal.
“Ellas” this season returned from the year-long exile in Serie B. They returned, however, without triumph, we can even say that it’s a failure. The only point Verona earned on the road with Croton (0-0), where almost did not attack. In their field they received two slaps from “Napoli” (1: 3) and “Fiorentina” (0: 5). At such rates, the team will be guaranteed a place in the relegation group.
Statistics and personal meetings
The last three full-time match of the teams ended with the score 1: 1
At the Olimpico, the Romans won this opponent five of six matches.
The only goal of “Verona” was scored from the penalty spot
Very hard playing “Roma”, not enough team speed and creativity. However, “Verona” looks even worse, the composition of the team age and not the strongest, and the number of injured is very high now. We would not personally wait for the goals from the guests. But the “Roma” still has something to prove to its public. Win “wolves” should be no problem, but still do not expect a serious defeat, “Ellas” certainly will defend the whole team.
