Roma will play at home with Cremonese in the 1/4 finals of the Coppa Italia. The match will take place on February 1, starting at 20:00 GMT.
AS Roma are not having the strongest season, having a very solid squad and ambitions. It is unlikely that the club could seriously count on the fight for the title, but at least a ticket to the Champions League is probably the minimum task for the team for the championship.
The team of Jose Mourinho can not cope, and in 20 rounds they managed to score 37 points, with which Roma are in sixth place in the Serie A table.
At the same time, the chances of finishing the season in the top four are very high, and after the loss of 15 caps by Juventus, there are even more of them, the fourth Atalanta has only one point more.
Cremonese have returned to Serie A this season, having improved significantly in the off-season. However, the start of the season turned out to be more difficult than the fans could have imagined.
Showing good football in segments, the club could not manage to cling to the victory, in the end Massimiliano Alvini exhausted the trust limit of the leadership and was dismissed.
The next coach was Davide Ballardini. Immediately, the new mentor showed that the team is able to add and Cremonese knocked Napoli out of the Cup, tied with Bologna with a score (1-1).

Roma after the winter break looks quite decent and before the fight with Napoli in the last round the club got three wins. Today, Roma will definitely strive to get a victory and get into the semi-finals, there is every reason for this. It is unlikely that Cremonese is capable of sensation in Rome.
Prediction for this match: Roma handicap (-1.5).
