After enjoying Europa Conference League glory last season, will Roma go all the way in this season’s Coppa Italia?
I Giallorossi beat Feyenoord in Tirana back in May, becoming the inaugural Europa Conference League winners.
This was the club’s first major silverware for 14 seasons, since lifting this trophy for the ninth time in 2008.
José Mourinho has won 26 major titles during his managerial career, including the Coppa Italia in 2010, beating Roma in that final, whilst in charge of treble-winners Inter.
Right now, Roma are sixth in Serie A, despite a dramatic comeback on Sunday night at San Siro.
2-0 down against A.C. Milan, Roger Ibañez halved the deficit with two to play before, deep in stoppage time, Tammy Abraham fired home a dramatic equaliser.
Nevertheless, this means Roma have won just one of their last five league matches, adding extra importance to this competition perhaps?
Genoa meanwhile, who were relegated last season, are one of just two teams from outside the top-flight to have made it this far.
Il Grifone‘s 15-year stay in Serie A came to an end last season, with their priority, of course, an instant return to the top division.
Alberto Gilardino’s team are currently third in Serie B, having beaten Bari 2-1 in their most-recent outing on Boxing Day.
George Pușcaș and Albert Guðmundsson on target at Stadio San Nicola.
In this competition, Genoa have so far ousted Benevento and S.P.A.L. to set up this glamour trip to the capital.
Will Roma be far too strong at Stadio Olimpico, with the winners traveling to either Napoli or Cremonese?
