Roma – Cremonese Preview
AS Roma hosts Cremonese at the Olimpico in a game from the Coppa Italia 1/8-finals. Stay with us and let’s preview this game for you in these sure soccer predictions.
Roma are aiming to win their second trophy under Jose Mourinho after the Conference League in 2022. The Portuguese manager have already won Coppa Italia once – during his treble-winning season with Inter Milan in 2010. Now he’s hungry for more success as this is probably his last season at Roma.
It’s a very curious fact that Roma are facing the team that eliminated them from Coppa Italia last season – Cremonese. Then the Wolves suffered a surprising 1-2 defeat at home and had to say goodbye to the tournament. Now Roma have their chance for a payback.
The Coppa is not a priority for the Serie A big clubs so most likely Mourinho will rotate his line-up. This means that we shall see players like Azmoun, El Shaarawy, Celik, Boer and Karsdorp in the line-up. At the same time Renato Sanches, Smalling, Dybala and Abraham are recovering from injuries.
Cremonese are currently participating in the Serie B – the second tier of Italian football. The club is having a decent season as they are 5th in the standings, just three points behind the Top 3. We can say that the manager Giovanni Stroppa is doing a good work and Cremonese are among the team that will fight for promotion.
In terms of current form Cremonese are inconsistent – two wins, one draw and two losses in the last five matches. One of the well-known names in the squad is the 35-years old striker Massimo Coda who is the team’s best goalscorer. If he plays, Coda will be the biggest danger to Roma’s defense.
That’s the sure soccer predictions for the Coppa Italia 1/8-finals game between AS Roma and Cremonese. Let’s see if Roma can avenge their defeat from the last season.
