Roma vs Benevento Preview #183

ROMA vs ben

After Roma’s first win in their last seven last weekend thanks to a opening a minute goal for Roma’s Youngster Cengiz Under. The Romans have felt the taste of victory at last. Roma will return home this weekend to try to make it two wins in a row. In another very winnable game against bottom Benevento. These two teams faced off at the beginning of the season with Roma winning a very comfortably 4-0. However despite Roma’s recent win they are not in the best of form and even in their Victory they struggled with their finishing in front of goal something that has plagued them all season long. Despite Benevento being top bottom in Italian fight this season they have started to play better over the last month. With two wins in the last five the remaining three games in that stretch have all been losses but they have done reasonably well in a few of those games. Roma are definitely the favorites here but we would be foolish to underestimate the relegation side who don’t look as bad as early in. Benevento does have some quality players that can hurt Roma despite the difference in quality with the likes of Fliip Duricic and new signing Bakery sagna they have players who Can do some damage. This is a lot better of a team then they were over the first 10 games. Despite that’s the difference in quality this match heavily favors Roma. However Roma will be without one of their best players as Lorenzo Pellegrini will be serving his one-game suspension for his red card against Verona last weekend. I imagine that Danielle de Rossi will take his place in the starting lineup. I’m not sure whether or not the formation will stay the same after the change that was made over the weekend I personally would keep the 4-2-3-1 because it really seemed the work on Sunday despite just the one goal in it they played brilliant football .  I believe that Roma should start Cengiz under  hes been playing so well so it should warrant him another start id also like to see Edin Dzeko and Stephan El Shaarawy in attacking positions. Not to mention we could see The Return of Patrik Schick This is a game Roma a hundred percent should win. However Benevento this is there Champions League final having a chance against a big team like Roma as what I imagine they’re motivated by so we could see a very ambitious Benevento on Sunday night. With Lazio’s recent loss this becomes a massive game for Roma with only three points separating themselves from third in the end I believe Roma will make it two wins in a row as they start to get back in form.
