The Giallorossi will be wary of Cremonese because of the last two defeats against them

AS Roma will have to deal with Serie B side Cremonese to kickstart the 2024 New Year calendar. It is a Coppa Italia Round of 16 fixture. Last game, the Giallorossi took on Juventus for the final fixture of matchday 18 in Serie A. It was a game in which Jose Mourinho’s men lost 1-0 but they were tactically good so were their efforts in front of the goal.

The visiting side of Cremonese sits 5th in the Italian second-tier standings. They will be eager to meet Roma given last two games’ outcomes have been in their favour. The last game for Cremonese was against Palermo in Serie B. The game was a 5-goal thriller in which Cremonese lost narrowly to a 3-2 scoreline.

Form

Roma (in all competitions): L-W-L-W-D

Cremonese (in all competitions): L-W-L-W-D

Players to Watch

Paulo Dybala (Roma)

One of the players that will be interesting to watch. Paulo Dybala has had a good 2023 with AS Roma. As the January 2024 transfer window is now open, clubs apart from Italian ones can get the special attacking midfielder for as little as €13 million. This is due to a clause in Dybala’s contract. In 12 Serie A appearances this season, Dybala has managed to score 4 goals and provide 6 assists.

Massimo Coda (Cremonese)

With the number 90 on his back, Massimo Coda has been an influential part of the attacking threat of Cremonese in Serie B. The Genoa loanee has made 17 league appearances for the club since joining in the 2023 summer. In those games, Coda has managed to net 9 goals plus provide one assist.

Match Facts

  • Cremonese should have high confidence as they have won the last two games against Roma
  • The Giallorossi are unbeaten in their last 10 home games across all competitions
  • The winner of this fixture will face Lazio in the quarter-finals

Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma will have to do without the services of striker Tammy Abraham and defender Chris Smalling. Abraham is recovering from a ligament injury while Smalling from a hamstring. Houssem Aouar will take part in AFCON 2023 with Algeria national football team.

For the visiting side of Cremonese led by Giovanni Stroppa, goalkeeper Mouhamadou Sarr is injured and a doubt for the match. Midfielder Alessio Brambilla who got injured on 31 October, his availability remains a doubt as well.
