La Gazzetta Suomi gives prediction for this Sunday, as Roma will face a tough challenge 50 miles south against Frosinone in a regional derby. The game kicks off Sunday 18th of February at 17:30 GMT.


Roma has surely been a different team since Jose Mourinho was sacked a month ago. Giallorossi has won three first fixtures under new manager Daniele De Rossi, but experienced their first defeat in the previous match against league leaders Inter conceding 4 goals at home.


This weekend Roma tries to get back on track in an away fixture against a strong home team Frosinone.


If Roma conceded four goals during the last round, Frosinone did one better as last year's Serie B winner allowed 5 goals in their own net against Fiorentina in Florence.


This meant that the I Canari's poor away form continued as they have managed to collect only three points away from home this season.


However, the promoted side is strong at home. Frosinone has collected 20 points at Stadio Benito season, having lost only three times in twelve games.


Match analysis


Frosinone likes to attack which is a surprising approach in Italy from a recently promoted club.


They have the capacity to do this: Matias Soule is playing a breakout season having completed most successful dribbles in the league and is always finding his teammates with precise passes.


In the midfield Luca Mazzitelli has played like a leader and goalkeeper Stefano Turati has been in great form most of the season.


The troubles for I Canari has occurred in away games when the team forgets to transition properly to defensive formation after attacking play. This has left too many spaces for the opponent to capitalize on.


But at home they seem more focused and are ready to challenge Roma for the victory.


Roma will most likely start Paulo Dybala, Romelu Lukaku and in-form Lorenzo Pellegrini so Frosinone can't match the opponent's talent.


If Roma is ready to battle from the bottom of their hearts they will walk away with the three points.


However Roma won't be as fresh as Frosinone due to the Europa League fixture against Feynoord in the Neatherlands.


Most likely Roma will need some luck to take the victory in this one so BTTS seems like a good bet.


Pick: Both Teams to Score - 2/3
