  • Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Roma)

Following a remarkable fight-back at Milan, Roma look to continue their Coppa Italia run as they host Serie B side Genoa at the Stadio Olimpico. 

Outplayed for much of the 90 minutes, Jose Mourinho´s side somehow claimed a point at the San Siro with late goals from Tammy Abraham and Roger Ibanez enough to secure an unlikely 2:2 draw.

Now back on home soil, Roma will be expected to take care of business against a Genoa side currently third in Italy´s second tier.

Roma vs Genoa Betting Tips: Roma and under 3.5 goals

Roma have been something of a mixed bag this season, and their recent form has been disappointing, having lost three of their last six - all by the same 1:0 scoreline - against Atalanta, Napoli and Lazio.

Eliminated by Inter in last year´s edition of this competition, Roma suffered a shock loss to Spezia in their last home Coppa Italia tie back in 2021. 

Visiting Genoa arrives in Rome, having picked up form lately with three wins and a draw from their last four league matches. The Genoans had failed to win any of their previous five league outings. 

On the road, Genoa ended a four-game winless streak with a victory at Bari last time out however, a trip to Rome very much represents a tougher scale of task for Alberto Gillardino´s side. 

Indeed, while Genoa did claim a draw in two of their three previous away games against Roma, their record in this fixture is terrible, having lost each of the previous 14 since 1994. 

Ultimately, it´s hard to see past a home victory here but given their lacklustre form, it probably won´t be a high-scoring or dominant win for the hosts. As such, the under 3.5 goal line should hold with a home victory.

Georginio Wijnaldum remains an injury absentee for Jose Mourinho, who is free to return to the touchline following his two-game suspension. 

Elsewhere, Paulo Dybala may drop out after a leggy display against Milan, with Tammy Abraham expected to lead the attack. Stephan El Shaarawy could get a rare start, while Nemanja Matic may come into the midfield.
