Following their rain-soaked victory over Sampdoria this past weekend, Roma will look to make it a perfect two-for-two to start 2021 when they face 20th place Crotone this afternoon in Calabria. Roma were waylaid by an extremely soaked pitch at the Olimpico last weekend but managed to overcome the muck and the mire when it mattered most, as Edin Dzeko's 72nd-minute goal powered Roma to a 1-0 victory.
Given Crotone's abysmal defensive record (they're among the most porous defenses in Europe), we hope this match won't come down to one moment, but anything can happen in Serie A at any given moment, so we can't assume a rout is in the making.
But the lineups are in, so let’s get down to business. Forza Roma!
