Our football match prediction:
Following five consecutive wins in the Serie A, Roma share the spoils with Genoa at Stadio Communale Luigi Ferraris in their last league fixture. The Giallorossi are seven points behind league leaders Napoli in the Serie A standings, but they have one game in hand. Anyhow, the team’s main goal is to finish the season in top four and we predict Eusebio di Francesco’s troops will go all guns blazing at SPAL when the two teams face each other at Stadio Olimpico. The newcomers, on the other hand, suffered a 2-1 loss to Chievo Verona in the “City of Love” at the weekend and, as a result, they dropped to the relegation zone in the Serie A table. The Romans are a real force to be reckoned with at home and there is every chance they will extend their winning run at home to four games.
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 (SPAL):
SPAL impressed in the 206/2017 Serie B campaign, with the team finishing the season in top position in the standings, four points clear of second-placed Hellas Verona. The Biancazzurri returned to the Italian elite division following a 49-year absence and it has to be noted that they finished the 2016/2017 Serie A campaign in 14th place in the table. As a result, they were relegated to the Italian second tier at the end of the season. The club was founded in 1907 as Circolo Ars et Labor and six years later was renamed as Societa Polisportiva Ars et Labor. After a bankruptcy the club was re-founded in 2005 and they have been competing as SPAl 1907 ever since. SPAL welcome their rivals at Stadio Paolo Mazza, the venue which was opened in 1928. You should know that the capacity of the stadium is 12.438 Rovigo are regarded as Spal’s fiercest rivals and the two teams face each other in the Derby of Polesine.
