Close to play-off

In order to leave its group the team of Eusebio Di Francesco has to win over Qarabağ during the home match. But if the Mattresses in London won’t win over Chelsea, Roma will be pleased with a goalless draw…
Meeting with the Griffin
And the closest rival of Roma in frames of Serie A will be Genoa. Let us remind you that according to the results of the 13th rounds Roma takes the 4th position and claims for one of the berths to another Champions League championship.
But the hosts of Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris are solving quite opposite task. The Griffin have earned only 9 points (+2=3-8) and 18th place at the tournament bracket.
As we see, at this current season the former team of Diego Milito has gained only two victories. And last of them happened during the previous round against Crotone (1:0).
But this time the Griffin will fight against much stronger and at the same time super motivated by its champions League’s race rival. And that is why, the most predictable favorite of this meeting is Roma.
