THE TEAM NEWS

ROMA

  • Roma made it five games without defeat in Serie A as they earned a huge win over SPAL during the week and that victory allowed them to move back into fifth place in the table.
  • Their fourth win during their unbeaten run was a straightforward one thanks to a brace from Bruno Peres as well as efforts from Nikola Kalinic, Carles Perez, Aleksandar Kolorov and Nicolo Zaniolo.
  • SPAL had threatened to make it a tough game when making the scores 1-1 but Roma proved to be far too good as they kicked on and Zaniolo will hope to earn a spot in the starting XI following his cameo from the bench.

FIORENTINA

  • Fiorentina earned another solid point as they improved their unbeaten record to six matches thanks to a draw with Internazionale during the week but this will be a tough ask for them to extend it further.
  • Inter were on top for much of the contest as Fiorentina looked to keep strong at the back and they were able to frustrate the hosts to keep their unbeaten run intact.
  • They are likely to set up in a similar way on this trip to Roma but they will be unable to name the same side as Gaetano Castrovilli is banned whilst Dalbert is a doubt after he was subbed off against Inter.

THE PREDICTION

Roma have produced a solid run of results and they will hope to continue their unbeaten streak as they host Fiorentina. The home side are unbeaten in five while it is one better for the visitors who have earned some eye-catching results of late. They held firm against Inter during the week and if they can defend as they did in that contest, they will make it difficult for Roma with goals likely to be at a premium in this one.
