Team News

  • Sestu is battling with Mannini to start the match on the right flank, since Angelo is injured.
  • Zè Eduardo is available again and may take a place in attack or just behind Calaiò.
  • Rosina and Valiani are currently favoured to support the lone striker.
  • There is the usual battle for places in the midfield (despite De Rossi's absence) between Tachtsidis, Pjanic and Bradley.
  • Destro will play in the attack once again after being the match-winner in Pescara.
  • De Rossi's transfer talks have inflamed this week since he's allegedly been spotted in London with Manchester City staff.

Prediction

  • Siena collected 8 points in the last 4 matches and for the first time this season they may get out of the relegation zone. Cosmi knows that his team would be around the middle of the table without penalisation, so he just needs to keep up with this points average to get the job done.
  • After losing the derby Roma picked up two victories that kept them close to the sixth place, but now Zeman has Milan's progress to worry about as they move up the table. The only way of keeping them away is winning in Siena, a goal that only Juventus have accomplished so far.
  • This match will be a clash between two different playing styles. Zeman has never cared about the opposition and always lines his side up offensively (even if in recent weeks Roma didn't score so much), while Cosmi will line up defensively.
