Roma preview

New, comments

After the frustrating loss to Lyon, what better way to rid ourselves of anger, than beating Roma. I know, i know, you'll say 'I Cazzi' are not what they used to be and you're right, but, 3 points against them are as good as 3 points against Inter for me.

Both teams suffered defeats in Europe this week, but, at least we lost to Lyon(French champs between 2000-2008), and not Basel of the Swiss league. I would also like to add that, had Gila not been sent off, the score would have been different.

Roma recently replaced Spaletti with Ranieri. The guy is a looser. If tomorrow he gets appointed as Barcelona's coach, he will still will not win anything. His record of finishing second is only bettered by Michael Ballack. How do they expect him to succeed in an environment dominated by Totti's ego is beyond me.

Incredibly, Roma has the entire squad fit for this match, although Cicinho and Doni will struggle to be match fit. Castillo and De Silvestri will miss for us due to injuries.

Form guide:

Viola: DDWWL

Roma: LWLWL

Probable line-ups:

Viola: Frey; Pasqual, Dainelli, Gamberini, Comotto; Montolivo, Zanetti; Vargas, Mutu, Marchionni; Gila

My prediction:1-1, Mutu, Totti.

Forza Viola!
