Yet another defeat filled with missed chances has the team under even more criticism. The 0-1 loss vs Bologna left the team collecting a mere 5 points out of 12 vs Carpi, Verona, Frosinone and Bologna. It even meant Cerci quitting social media after being targeted for a bad miss and general poor play. The coach has insisted he will not resign but Berlusconi has repeated that he is not happy so anything can happen. Another midweek game – Coppa Italia match vs Carpi – coming next Wednesday and consecutive losses may spell the end for Mihajlovic.
Roma have not fared much better recently and have just 1 win in last 5 and have fallen to fifth in the Serie A standings. They will be without Dzeko whose two game suspension was upheld, Salah was a doubt early in the week but looks likely to start.
Latest word on the possible line up is that Alex is out with a knock but Romagnoli returns from suspension and will partner Mexes in defense. Honda may keep his place but Boateng may feature as well or even start in his place. Montolivo could be rested and therefore Kucka looks to get a start in midfield. The front two misfired vs Bologna but the Adriano option is available. However, if Adriano starts, once again this would qualify as too much tinkering.
