Frosinone vs Roma
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 23 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Benito Stirpe (Frosinone).
Roma somehow managed to secure a three-pointer last weekend when they saw off relegation threatened Bologna 2-1 thanks to second half goals from Aleksandar Kolarov and Federico Fazio. It was team’s third successive win in all competitions.
It seems Eusebio Di Francesco’s men finally found the winning formula. The timing could not have been better as they completely returned to the battle for the top-four finish.
La Lupa are now only one point shy of 4th-placed Milan and they also gained a 2-1 advantage in the first leg of the Champions League R16 tie against Porto.
Roma have a nice chance to keep the winning thread going on Saturday night when they travel to Stadio Benito Stirpe to take on relegation strugglers Frosinone on Matchday No 25.
A win here would be massive for the Romans as it would also boost up the confidence ahead of next weekend’s derby with bitter rivals Lazio.
Frosinone vs Roma: Head-to-head
This will only be the fourth head to head meeting between the two teams.
Roma were completely dominant so far, winning each of past three ties with Canarini.
Each of these wins came by at least two goals difference as the Romans notched as many as nine goals in the process.
Frosinone vs Roma: Prediction
Frosinone are also desperate for points, but they can hardly expect much from this tie with in-form La Lupa. The hosts are five points shy of the safe zone and they have a mountain to climb to save the elite class status before the end of the campaign.
Canarini did pick up some shocking wins lately against the likes of Bologna (0-4) and Sampdoria (0-1). Nevertheless, they have a dreadful home record being the only team in the entire division without a single win in front of their fans. They only scored 6 and conceded 22 goals for a record of 0 wins, 5 draws and 6 defeats at home in this term of Serie A.
Roma bagged seven goals in last three wins and we can hardly imagine them slipping up here against such opposition.
Frosinone vs Roma: Bet Tips
