After a four-game winning streak in Serie A, Roma have lost their last game in the Italian top flight. They will be looking to come back to winning ways when they host in-form Fiorentina at the Stadio Olimpico in the 23rd round of Serie A.
Roma Need To Bounce Back
The hosts have been consistent in their last few games in Serie A. However, they need to bounce back quickly from their unexpected defeat last time out. Roma have collected a total of 12 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Serie A. Their last league match was against Sampdoria away from home where they lost 3-2.
Roma are currently sitting in the 3rd place in the league table. They have 47 points from 15 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses. The team scored 44 goals and conceded 21 since the start of the season.
Mohamed Salah won’t be available until the weekend at the earliest after featuring in Egypt’s final defeat to Cameron in the Africa Cup of Nations at the weekend. With Diego Perotti also sidelined, this should grant Stephan El Shaarawy a start in midweek. Kostas Manolas’ return should see Juan Jesus and Thomas Vermaelen drop to the bench.
The Visitors Are Ready
Fiorentina have collected a total of 11 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Serie A. Their last league match was against Pescara away from home where they won 2-1.
Fiorentina are currently sitting in the 7th place in the league table. They have 37 points from 10 wins, 7 draws and 5 losses. They have scored 38 goals and conceded 29 since the start of the season.
Paulo Sousa has confirmed Nikola Kalinic will not travel with the squad due to a knee injury, while January signing Riccardo Saponara is still not quite ready. The Fiorentina manager has also confirmed Ciprian Tatarusanu will return between the sticks, while Gonzalo Rodríguez will also return to the back three after a three-game absence. It remains to be seen who he will replace for Tuesday’s trip to Rome.
Head To Head
Roma have won 2 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in September when the final score was 1-0 to Fiorentina in the reverse fixture.
