MARCO Di Cosmo, our man in Italy, was eager to tell us about a bet he’d found in Tuesday night’s Coppa Italia clash.
Roma v Fiorentina | Tuesday 19.45 | Sky Sports 1
Roma host Fiorentina at the Olimpoco with the Giallorossi going through their most difficult phase of the season so far. On Saturday they were held at home by Empoli in a game I fully expected them to get back on track with after a series of poor perforamnces.
Difficulties have been exposed by injuries to Juan Iturbe and Kevin Strootman with the team losing balance and creativity. The duo will be unavailable again for Tuesday night’s match, as well as new signings Victor Ibarbo and Seydou Doumbia and Gervinho.
Roma are, without a doubt, on another level to Fiorentina but with injuries and unavailable players making Rudi Garcia’s selection process a little tricky, we’ve got to expect another difficult tie for the Giallorossi. The visitors are expected to name a strong team with the Coppa Italia their only realistic goal this season and I’ll be backing them to avoid defeat in the capital.
It should be another tight encounter with a high chance of a draw so I’m going to chance the 10/11 from Bet365 that Fiorentina avoid defeat in the Double Chance market.
