Roma vs Cremonese prediction

The Romans put up with a decent fight in the last round traveling to Napoli, but even so, ended their unbeaten run across all completions, as they suffered a close 2:1 defeat.

After leaving on a break with a 1:0 deficit, the visitor managed to spice things up here and bounce back with an equalizer over El Shaarawy in the 75th, however, failed to remain focused in the back, and unfortunately for them, conceded another one in the last five minutes.

Roma occupies the 6th spot in the Serie A standings, just a point in deficit compared to the Champions League-placed Atalanta.

Left-back Spinazzola (13/0), right full-back Karsdorp (9/0), defensive midfielder Darboe, offensive Zaniolo (13/1), and forward Abraham (20/5) shouldn’t be playing in this one.

Cremonese fought valiantly last time out at home against much-favored Inter but eventually suffered an inevitable 1:2 defeat, lacking a bit more creativity with the ball for a possible surprise here.

They opened the match in a better way and took the lead in the 11th over Okereke, but even so, failed to keep up with obviously more versatile opponents, and conceded on two occasions in the 21st and later on in the 65th minute.

Cremonese is currently at the rock-hammered in last place, having only eight points collected so far in the campaign.

Central defender Lochoshvili (14/0), left-back Quagliata (13/0), and midfielder Acella should remain out for the guests.

Waiting for the quality to step in

The upcoming quarter-final of Coppa Italia carries a weight of its own, and logically, both sides have nothing but a victory racing around their thoughts.

This competition comes as a season savior for the guests, but realistically speaking, it is highly unlikely that they can do something special against the opponent that is superior in every way.

With that being said, following the odds and opting for a victory of Roma is a logical thing to do here, but at this late phase of the competition, rushing is definitely not wise, so don’t expect too much action in a most likely, match with a more tactical approach.
