Roma vs Cesena : Live Streaming and Highlights Preview and Prediction
Roma vs Cesena Coppa Italia – Quarter Finals Date: Wednesday 1st February, 2017 Kick-off: 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Rome.
Cesena made a major success by reaching the Coppa Italia quarterfinal. They celebrated a shocking 1-2 win against Sassuolo in the last round of the competition when Ciano and Laribi packed two late goals to complete a comeback after Pellegrini’s opener. The manager Andrea Camplone has huge troubles with the defensive line which allowed as many as five goals in last two league games against Perugia and Ascoli. The poor defense is the main reason for the fact the visitors are still sitting in the danger zone in Serie B standings.
Roma have had problems at the back on their own as well since Luciano Spalletti’s men conceded three goals in a defeat to Sampdoria over the weekend. It was the first defeat after five straight wins for the Romans who are now four points away from Juventus at the top of Serie A table. However, looking at the impressive form the team showed at Olimpico lately, where they managed to claim eight straight wins, we can’t expect any other scenario but a confident home win in Wednesday’s clash with Pescara.
Roma vs Cesena: Head-to-Head Stats
Roma have been absolutely dominant in head to head matches with Cesena winning five and drawing one out of six matches. Cesena failed to find the net against the Romans in each of the two league encounters from 2014/15 season.
Roma vs Cesena: Prediction
Roma are 4/6 to score three or more goals which represents a decent value knowing how poor the visitors’ defensive line is. Alternatively, Roma to win by two goals or more is a banker bet set 11/20 odds. The hosts have demolished Sampdoria in the previous round of Coppa Italia outscoring the visitors by 4-0 with a brace from Radja Nainggolan and goals from Edin Dzeko and Stephan El Shaarawy.
