The Giallorossi have once again been handed a golden opportunity on a silver platter (clever, huh). Inter’s loss to Fiorentina yesterday combined with AC Milan’s evening match against league leaders Napoli has left Roma with a simple mission: win against Sampdoria and keep the pressure on in the hunt for top four football. While Roma are down a good number of players, there’s no doubt that this side has the quality to defeat Samp; the real question is will their quality see them through.
Today’s match is also a chance for players like Tammy Abraham and Nicola Zalewski to bounce back from runs of poor form. While the starting eleven is down a couple key defenders (congrats on the start, Diego Llorente), the lineup is still at its core Roma’s first eleven.
