Roma vs Frosinone
2018/19 Italian Serie A.
Date: Wednesday 26 September 2018
Kick-Off: 20:00 UK,
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Roma will be desperate to turn around their flagging fortunes as they take on Frosinone, who have yet to score or win a game all season.
The Giallorossi will face Lazio in this weekend’s first edition of the Derby della Capitale, and Eusebio Di Francesco is under increasing pressure to improve things at the Stadio Olimpico. Roma come into this game having suffered a shocking 2-0 loss to Bologna last weekend, a team who had, before then, not managed to score a goal so far this term.
It capped off a miserable week for the Lupi, who were thrashed by Real Madrid in their midweek Champions League tie. With just five points from five games, Roma are enduring one of their worst starts to a league campaign in this decade and having lost some key players, things are just not clicking for them right now.
Having dropped points against Chievo in their last home game, the visit of Frosinone must feel like a break. That being said, Frosinone did manage to frustrate Lazio and were only broken down late on, and they did hold Juventus 0-0 for 80 minutes before they were finally seen off. Arguably, they will try the same approach here as when one’s battling the drop, every single point counts between now and May.

Roma vs Frosinone: Prediction
Roma are in awful form, to say the least. The fact that they have picked up just one point from opponents like Bologna and Chievo – two teams who sit in the last three – doesn’t look good, but now they have a chance to make amends as they take on another relegation candidate, Frosinone.
That being said, the Canarini could possibly finally end their wait for a goal – if they attempt to venture forward, as Roma have shipped at least two goals in their last six games across all comps.
