Wake up! It's game time!
Thanks to the Serie A schedule-makers gifting Roma with the always rare 12:30 CET kickoff time, those of us on this side of the Atlantic get to jump-start their Sunday with some pre-dawn calcio—and what a matchup it is. For the first time in nearly 20 years, Roma travels to historic Venice to face newly-promoted Venezia FC, who are currently nestled in 17th place, already in the throes of a seven-team race to avoid relegation.
The lineups are in, so rub the sleep out of your eyes and do whatever pre-match routine guarantees Roma a lopsided victory today.
