Roma to see off Fiorentina in Serie A shootout

Italians look to bounce back following Champions League drubbing in Barcelona

Roma suffered a Champions League battering by Barcelona on Wednesday, but they can see off Fiorentina on their return to domestic action.

The Wolves will likely be without Cengiz Under, but key midfielder Radja Nainggolan could return.

The hosts are still on course to qualify for next season’s Champions League and will need to be focused for the visit of a Fiorentina side, who are only four points off sixth-placed Milan and are looking to make the cut for the early qualifying rounds of next season’s Europa League.

Roma were unbeaten in all competitions in March, chalking up convincing victories over Napoli and Torino, while Fiorentina have won their last four, conceding just once.

Stefano Pioli’s side have failed to score in just one of their 11 league matches in 2018 and 22-year-old Giovanni Simeone looks their most dangerous attacking outlet.

Roma meanwhile have scored four in each of the last two games between the sides, so a goal-fest could be on the cards.

Recommendation
Roma to win and both teams to score
2pts 13-5 general
