Roma have been terrific at home this term winning twelve and drawing two. With Gervinho, Ljajic up front and Francesco Totti coming off the bench Roma have been terrific. Unfortunately for Roma they seem to have come up against A Juventus team that are unstoppable. But Roma will continue to push and hope to take advantage of any mistakes that happen for Juventus. Manager Rudi Garcia will continue to push his team to the high standards that they have maintained all season and while this game on paper appears to be a certain home win , Sampdoria will be no push over. In fact Roma struggled to beat this same opposition in a cup game in January struggling to a 1-0 win.
Sampdoria have won three of the last five and under Mihajlovich look like a team that is going to push for a top half finish rather than the relegation they look destined for early in the season. Gabiadinni and Eder will be vital for Sampdoria and the pair have combined for fifteen goals this season.
As mentioned already this one looks like a certain home win on paper but Sampdoria are in good form and while Roma have been terrific at home I'm not sure they blow their opposition away tomorrow. I think there will be a reaction from the Romans for their exit from the cup though. I'm going to take the overs in this one, I think Sampdoria will nick a goal and I think Roma will get the win. 2-1 might be a good bet on the correct score. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
