AS Roma – Genoa (Serie A)

Without any more chances of achieving their main objective of the season, becoming champions, AS Roma face Genoa at the Stadio Olimpico this Sunday afternoon, for the last Serie A round. Despite the impossibility of becoming champions, AS Roma still have to secure 2nd place in order to get direct access to next season’s Champions League, and this will be a emotional match, since it will be Totti’s last match. Genoa, on their turn, had a rather disappointing season and arrive here just to honour the competition, with maintenance already secured.

AS Roma are 2nd placed in the Serie A table with 84 points, result of 27 victories, 3 draws and 7 defeats, with 87 goals scored and 36 goals conceded. This was a good season for AS Roma, who were always in the pursuit of leader Juventus, but slipped too many times during the season and ended up having to fight for 2nd place, with Juventus already crowned champions. Out of the Europa League and the TIM Cup, this is another season where Roma won’t win any trophy.

Now, La Maggica main objective is to win here and to secure the 2nd place, in order to get direct access to next season’s Champions League. At home is, by far, where Luciano Spalletti’s men are stronger, winning 15 of the 18 matches played in Serie A, with 47 goals scored and 16 conceded. La Maggica have also won 3 of their last 5 home matches, losing 1, scoring 10 goals and conceding 6 in the process. This will be a very emotional match, since it will be the last game of the club’s living legend, Francesco Totti, so by respect to their captain, it is to expect the players give everything they have.

In their last 5 official matches, AS Roma has a record of 4 victories and 1 defeat. This sequence of results started with a 1-4 away victory against Pescara. This result was followed by a 1-3 home defeat against Lazio, a 3-1 home victory over Juventus, and in their last clash, a 3-5 away win over Chievo. Florenzi is out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Szczesny – Rudiger, Fazio, Manolas and Emerson – Strootman and Rossi – Salah, Nainggolan and Shaarawy – Dzeko.

serie aGenoa, on their turn, are 16th placed in Serie A table with 36 points, result of 9 victories, 9 draws and 19 defeats, with 36 goals scored and 61 goals conceded. Genoa, who in the last season finished in the middle of the table, have been very disappointing this season, showing awful results and counting only with 3 victories in their last 21 consecutive Serie A games, losing 13 of them. Away from home the Rossoblu show a mediocre form, winning only 3 of the 18 away matches they played in the Serie A, scoring just 12 goals and conceded 37 in the process. Genoa lost 4 of their last 5 Serie A matches, winning the other, scoring 2 goals and conceding 9 in the process. Andrea Mandorlini’s men have the 4th defense with more goals conceded in the league, and have de 5th worst attack. Without any more objectives to achieve, and arriving here just to honour the competition, the tension and pressure should be gone by now.

In their last 5 official matches, Genoa has a record of 2 victories and 3 defeats. This sequence of results started with a 4-0 away defeat against Juventus. This result was followed by a 1-2 home defeat against Chievo, a 1-0 home victory over Internazionale, a 1-0 away defeat against Palermo, and in their last clash, a 2-1 home victory over Torino. Mattia Perin, injured, and Armando Izzi, suspended, are both out.

Probable Lineup: Lamanna – Gentiletti, Burdisso and Biraschi – Lazovic, Cofie, Veloso, Rigoni and Laxalt – Simeone and Pandev.

AS Roma has won 7 of their last 8 direct clashes, losing the remaining.
