This week, it was rumoured that club legend Daniele De Rossi was expected to be offered an extension to his current deal at Stadio Olimpico after an extremely impressive few months since his mid-January appointment. The Giallorossi continued their good form in the UEFA Europa League in midweek.

They defeated Serie A rivals AC Milan by two goals to one to complete a 3-1 aggregate victory in the quarter-finals of that competition. They are also set for a top four or five finish and UEFA Champions League qualification after just two defeats in their last 17 matches across all competitions since De Rossi’s arrival.


It has been a magnificent campaign so far for Thiago Motta but they are in danger of allowing the season to potentially drift with the news that their manager could well be replacing Massimiliano Allegri at Juventus this summer, regardless of whether or not Bologna do pull off a top five finish and UEFA Champions League qualification.

The first signs of a potential drift came last weekend when Bologna were held to a goalless draw by mid-table Monza at the Renato Dell’Ara. That means Bologna have now drawn their last two matches after being held to the same scoreline by struggling Frosinone a couple of weeks ago. They have sill suffered just one loss in their last 12 matches in Serie A.



Evan Ndicka is unavailable for Roma after suffering a collapsed lung against Udinese last week, whilst defender Zeki Celik is missing through suspension.

PREDICTED XI (4-3-3): Svilar; Karsdorp, Smalling, Mancini, Spinazzola; Pellegrini, Paredes, Bove; Il Faraone, Lukaku, Dybala

UNAVAILABLE: Celik (Suspended), Ndicka (Illness)



Scotland international Lewis Ferguson is unavailable after suffering an ACL injury and he is sidelined through injury alongside both Adama Soumaoro and Jens Odgaard.

PREDICTED XI (4-1-4-1): Skorupski; Posch, Beukema, Lucumi, Kristiansen; Freuler; Orsolini, Aebischer, Moro, Urbanski; Zirkzee

UNAVAILABLE: Ferguson (Injured), Odgaard (Injured), Soumaoro (Injured)



Both of these sides would be forgiven for potentially fading between now and the end of the season as they have enjoyed such an impressive few months. Both Daniele De Rossi and Thiago Motta have played enjoyable styles of football this season but there is actually a clear favourite. With Motta’s potential departure, their slight dip in form and the injury to key man Lewis Ferguson, as well as Roma’s own good form and home advantage, backing Roma looks the way to go for this one.
