AS Romavs Genoa

Roma’s elation of making the Champions League (CL) semis will have to
take backseat as they set their sights on the battle for third place in
Serie A (SA). Ready to spoil their plans are a Genoa side who may have
earned a decisive break away from the relegation zone last weekend.

The hangover of that sensational win over Barcelona in the CL was
evident in Roma’s derby draw last weekend (0-0) against ten-men Lazio.
However, favourable results in other games meant that Roma still have CL
qualification in their own hands. But, after dropping seven points in
their last three games (D2, L1), they need to put things right and

Their home form in the league has tapered off in the recent games with
four losses in seven games (W2, D1, L4). Though their losses have come
against teams in the top-half, Roma would be wary of facing a team that
has nothing to lose.

That is exactly what Genoa are, considering they are 11 points ahead of
the relegation zone. An unbeaten four-match run (W2, D2) has certainly
helped matters as the visitors now look set to beat the drop.

However, they haven’t won away from home in SA for three games (D1, L2)
since February. They haven’t scored during the process and will be eager
to leave that behind. Genoa have drawn blanks in 11 of their 16 trips
which is frustrating for the team and fans at best.

Players to watch: Edin Dzeko’s form will be crucial for Roma, as he
looks to add to his tally of 14 SA goals.

Can Gianluca Lapadula (GEN) add to his tally of two goals in three

Stat attack: Genoa have scored the least number of away goals (eight)
this season, but have conceded the third-fewest goals (ten).

Roma have dropped only one point at home in 12 encounters against Genoa.
