Our prediction for this Coppa Italia match:
Roma and Virtus Entella face each other at Stadio Olimpico in the Coppa Italia last 16. The Giallorossi are seen as hot favourites to make it to the quarter-finals, but the Serie A side should not be underestimated. The Romans are a real force to be reckoned with at home and seeing that they defeated Sassuolo and Parma in previous two league fixtures, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the capital club. Virtus Entella did well to beat Genoa at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris in the last 32 of the Italian Cup, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Monday’s football game against Roma. The Romans have found their form of late and seeing that key attacker Edin Dzeko is fit, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed from the trip to the “Eternal City”.
Highlighted Player (Daniele De Rossi):
Daniele De Rossi is one of the most impressive products of Roma’s youth academy. De Rossi played as a striker at the start of his career, but he has since developed into one of world’s leading holding midfielders. The Italian footballer plays as a centre back as well and he has been a part of Roma since 2001.
De Rossi was born on 24 July, 1983 in the capital of Italy and he has 16 caps for Italy U21 team. The Roma midfielder won the 2006 FIFA World Cup with Italy as they defeated France in the title game. De Rossi is well known for his tackling, vision, brilliant passing and awareness and he is capable of reading the game.
The Italian footballer made 24 appearances for Roma in the 2015/2016 Serie A campaign and he represented Italy at the 2016 European Championship finals. However, the Azzurri failed to record a good result at the tournament in France as they were beaten by Germany in the quarter-finals.
