Carpi vs Roma by Sors
Carpi comes from two narrow defeats away from home against Fiorentina on Feb. 3 (1-2) and Napoli last Sunday (0-1), though these results are somehow deceptive, given the fact that the hosts were totally outplayed by their opponents in those two encounters, especially in the last of them in Naples.
In the matter of fact, the hosts won seven points from their last three games at this stadium against Udinese (2-1), Sampdoria (2-1) and Palermo on Jan. 30 (1-1), but all these teams are currently in the lower half of the standings in the Italian Serie A, while now Carpi will face an opponent with ambitions for place at top 3 – for a third time in the last nine days.
This could be a problem for Carpi, given the fact that Fabrizio Castori doesn’t have the needed depth in the squad.In addition to that, Lorenzo Pasciuti (m / 11+1) got injured in the last match against Napoli and is out for the home team, as well as Raffaele Bianco (m / 15+0), who was sent off in that game.Igor Bubnjic (d / 9+0), Matteo Fedele (m / 8+0) and the new signing Jonathan de Guzman (m / 0+0) are also unavailable due to injuries.
Luciano Spalletti’s second spell as Roma manager began with a 1-1 draw against Verona on Jan. 17, followed by a 0-1 loss in the visit to Juventus on Jan. 24, but the last three games were won and now Roma is only two points behind Fiorentina in the race for the third place.
The guests didn’t impressed much in those three games, but won nine points thanks to the routine and the individual qualities of the players and I really doubt that Roma will make mistake against one of the teams with the lowest potential in the league.
Norbert Gyomber (d / 6+0), Vasilis Torosidis (d / 11+0), Daniele De Rossi (m / 18+1) and Francesco Totti (f / 5+1) are out due to injuries.
I think that Roma will keep the momentum with three points from this match.
