Our match prediction:
Freshman Carpi will visit the Stadio Olimpico on Saturday afternoon for a confrontation with AS Roma in the 6th round of the Serie A. In their last games AS Roma poorly played a draw against Sassuolo and lost against Sampdoria. Roma manager Rudi García and his men will be highly motivated to revenge their bad streak. Carpi on the other hand managed to keep Napoli on a 1-1 which can be considered as quiet a stunt. Carpi will be having a hard time against AS Roma and will have to focus on counter possibilities.
Highligted Player (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.
Highlighted Team (AS Roma):
AS Roma are a professional football club based in Rome. Roma were founded by a merger in 1927 and they play in the Italian Serie A. Roma’s fiercest rivals are Lazio and it has to be noted that both capital clubs play their home games at Stadio Olimpico. The two local rivals face each other in the Derby della Capitale, which is considered one of the most exciting derbies in the world of football. The Giallorossi (The Yellow and Reds) have won three Serie A titles (1941/1942, 1982/1983, 2000/2001), while winning nine Coppa Italia trophies. The colour of Roma’s shirts is imperial purple with a golden yellow trim. A number of top-class footballers were part of Roma in the past, but Francesco Totti is undisputedly the club’s biggest legend. “The Prince of Rome” made his 601 appearances for Roma on 14 May, 2016 when the Giallorossi recorded a 3-1 win over Milan at Stadio San Siro.
