Roma will look to close the gap on the top three as they welcome Cagliari on Saturday evening.
The Giallorossi were held to a scoreless draw with Chievo in the last round, although given that the Flying Donkeys managed to more or less park the bus to maximum effect also against Napoli, perhaps it may not be that surprising. Like the Partenopei, the Lupi took on Chievo on the Flying Donkeys’ home turf immediately after a Champions League tie, so one can certainly argue that fatigue certainly and obviously played a huge role in both teams’ showings against Rolando Maran’s side.
Roma have won four of their last five recent Serie A fixtures against Cagliari. The other result was a draw, and one would have to go back over four years to note the last time the Rossoblu managed to get the better of the Lupi.
