Roma vs Palermo
Two wounded lions will face eachothers at Sunday in Olimpico. Both teams are coming from last week's defeats.
While Luis Enrique is trying a new system in Roma his team lost against Lazio at Derby della Capitale after undefeated five games against Lazio with Klose's last minute goal.
After Kjaer's sent off and penalty kick game totally changed , Lazio have dominated Giallorossi and deservedly won the derby.
Luis Enrique's system still under the criticism.
Roma will miss Kjaer due suspension. Francesco Totti , Cicinho and Rosi are injured and will miss Palermo game.
Luis Enrique had mentioned that they have to forget Derby defeat and focus on Palermo game because of up-coming difficult fixture.
Roma will start with 4-3-3 formation. Erik Lamela likely to make his debut.
Pjanic will remain central attacking role of Totti.
Luis Enrique planning to field a very offencive squad against Palermo.
Roma (probable) 4-3-3 : Stekelenburg , Cassetti , Burdisso , Heinze (Juan) , Angel , De Rossi , Perrotta , Pjanic , Lamela , Bojan , Osvaldo
Palermo have lost to Milan in San Siro with 3-0 and Zamparini started to put pressure on Mangia. Every teams in Serie A might lose to Milan , because Milan are the best team of Serie A (without injuries).
Though Palermo have 10 points and following leader Juventus two points behind Zamparini isn't happy with 4-4-2 formation and pushed Mangia to change formation.
Palermo coach Mangia will use 4-3-1-2 formation against Roma.
That's always hard to work with Zamparini who had sold Palermo's best player Pastore and such important names as Nocerino , Sirigu , Cassani , Goian , Munoz etc.
His team playing almost without defenders. Palermo defence is Serie B level , even they don't have enough defenders and midfielder Migliaccio is playing as a CB.
Anyway , with new formation Miccoli or Hernandes , one of them will sit on the bench. But definetely Palermo will be a more offencive team.
Palermo (probable) 4-3-1-2 : Tzorvas; Pisano, Silvestre, Migliaccio, Balzaretti; Bertolo, Barreto, Della Rocca, Ilicic; Hernandez (Zahavi), Miccoli (Pinilla)
Without a doubt there will be a great game between two teams which are eager to win. Both are coming from defeats , Luis Enrique feeling pressure from the fans , Mangia feeling pressure of Chairman.
Roma - Palermo game can be the most entertaining game of Sunday's round with their offencive formations.
