Lecce are the only non-Serie A side left in the Coppa Italia this season and will face an uphill battle against Roma to qualify for the quarter-finals which will see them face Inter Milan.

Match Preview

Roma recovered from their slump against Juventus, as they threw away a two-goal lead to eventually lose 4-3 at home, with a narrow win over Cagliari at the weekend.

33rd minute penalty from new midfielder Sergio Oliveira [yang direkrut dari FC Porto] proved sufficient to secure the three points that were much needed for Giallorossi, which currently sits in seventh place in the Serie A standings.

Lecce, meanwhile, are in fine form at the moment, winning four of their last five matches in all competitions.

They have also lost just one game since August, which has seen them move up to fifth in the Serie B standings, just one point adrift of third and four points off the leaders.

Meeting Record

In the eight head-to-head encounters between the two sides, Roma are still very dominant with seven wins and Lecce have won just once. The two clubs last met in Serie A in 2020, with Roma beating Lecce 4-0.

Team News

Leonardo Spinazzola is still injured for Roma, Lorenzo Pellegrini, Chris Smalling and Stephan El Shaarawy are doubts, while Ebrima Darboe and Amadou Diawara are doubts.

Meanwhile, Lecce will be without centre-back Fabio Pisacane and he is the only one unavailable to the Serie B side.

Player Estimate

AS Roma XI (4-2-3-1): Rui Patricio; Rick Karsdorp, Gianluca Mancini, Marash Kumbulla, Matias Vina; Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Sergio Oliveira; Nicolo Zaniolo, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Felix Afena-Gyan; Tammy Abraham

Lecce XI (4-2-3-1): Gabriel Ferreira; Arturo Calabresi, Fabio Lucioni, Kastriot Dermaku, Antonio Barreca; Porir Johann Helgason, Morten Hjulmand; Gabriel Strefezza, Pablo Rodriguez, Francesco Di Mariano; Marco Olivieri

Prediction

Lecce are the only Serie B team left in the Coppa Italia. However they should not be underestimated having won four of their last five matches in all competitions, but of course on paper, Roma have the upper hand and it is expected that Jose Mourinho will field a strong squad to ensure his side win here.

Score Prediction: AS Roma 3-0 Lecce
