AS Roma takes luck on the road

AS Roma is looking to bring their good momentum on the road when they travel to the home turf of U.S. Cremonese. This meeting will be on March 1, 2023, at 1:30 AM (GMT+8). Roma is coming from back-to-back wins at home, so they are hoping to continue their good momentum on the road. Additionally, they are also continuing their campaign for a top four finish in the league. Cremonese on the other hand is at the bottom of the league table, and are unlikely to enter the next round. They are a miserable team right now, barely receiving a win in the contest.

Considering that the hosts just got promoted to the Serie A, this is only the third time that these two teams will meet. They first met each other in August 2022, where it was the visitors who took the victory in a 1-0 win. However, tables have turned when they met in Coppa Italia. Surprisingly, the hosts were able to record a 2-1 win against the visitors, knocking out the visitors. However, the host is the only team who have yet to experience a victory this term in the Serie A. They now have 14 losses, and nine draws on their names, equaling the longest winless run in the league. From their last 10 league games, the visitors only lost once, and winning five.

Roma is a team who recently qualified in the Round of 16 of the UEFA Europa League, where they can get confidence from. Moreover, they also experienced back-to-back wins at home, so they are hoping for the same result on the road. They secured a 2-0 win against Salzburg, and a 1-0 first leg win for a spot in the last of 16 in Europa. In the Serie A, they are at the fifth spot with 44 points. However, they are still aiming for a top four finish, where they continue to knock. This squad is just a point behind the team at the fourth spot, and a win could help them enter the top four. They are now looking to take advantage of their good momentum to continue winning in the contest.

They will be without Smalling, who is suspended in this match, and Kumbulla will standing as his replacement. Tammy Abraham on the other hand is expected to play, but will wear a mask after sustaining an eye injury.

Cremonese on the other hand once again failed to get their first league win last Monday, after being held in a draw. They just had a 2-2 draw against Torino, their ninth draw this season. They are a team who have yet to taste victory as they lost to 14, and had a nine draws in their 23 matches. This is why it is no longer surprising that they are at the bottom of the league table with just nine points. Currently sitting 11 points away from the safety zone, this squad is unlikely to enter the next round. If they remain hopeful for their chances, they need strong finish from their matches. Their nine points are all from the draws they made this season.

Fortunately, Johan Vasquez will be returning from his suspension, but Vlad Chiriches remains to be out for this squad.
