As far as off the pitch drama is concerned, this was a rather dull week in the Romaverse. Outside of the club reportedly being miffed with Paulo Fonseca for given an interview without their consent and/or knowledge and Riccardo Calafiori testing positive for COVID, things were pretty tame around Trigoria. While it didn't give us much to talk about this week, it's probably the ideal setting for a Roma side searching for a knockout.

Newly promoted Benevento have a bit more topflight experience than the average newly promoted side, and actually enter this match higher on the table than Roma, but Fonseca's crew is nearly at full strength and should...should...have enough fire power to ground these witches.
