Match : Roma vs Genoa Competition : Italy – Serie A Time / Date : 21:45h / 18 April 2018 Venue : Stadio Olimpico
It has been a fantastic week for Roma with a massive victory over Barcelona in the Champions League semifinal and then a point from the Rome derby against Lazio on the weekend. The team is supposed to travel to Liverpool in 8 days time, but must take care of two Serie A fixtures by then.
Genoa seem to have found some form lately. They defeated Crotone 1-0 at the weekend to stretch the unbeaten run to four games. However, they are known for dropping their heads during a similar kind of run and last time they lost 2 on the bounce when on a four match unbeaten run.
Grégoire Defrel (Distortion of the ankle), Diego Perotti (Calf Problems), Rick Karsdorp (Cruciate Ligament Rupture)
Santiago Gentiletti (Suspension), Loïck Landre (Suspension), Davide Biraschi (Tear in the abductor muscle), Armando Izzo(Calf strain)
Roma stretched their unbeaten run over Genoa to 7 matches with a 1-1 draw earlier this season. The previous 6 in the series are wins.
Roma must win here in order to remain in the Champions League qualification zone. They have a momentous head-to-head record against Genoa and this is the sort of game they cannot afford to lose.
