Match Day Four – Serie A Italian Calcio

4daytable Match Day Four   Serie A Italian Calcio

Remember Serie A tifosi this is a short week in Italy, Match Day 4 games are being played on Wednesday, September 24th.  

Tricky match for Roma away to Genoa this match day and although they’ve found their footing and confidence, in beating Reggina 3 – 0 Match Day 3, I think this one is going to be scrappy and Roma will have to get stuck in early with a few goals if they hope to keep the winning momentum going.

Lazio – Fiorentina looks like another one the neutral fan should enjoy, especially as Lazio players are licking their wounds from the AC Milan beating at weekend.  The capital club has maintained a good home record in recent years but looking at the head-head stats, Fiorentina have bested the Biancocelesti in the last 4 meetings at the Stadio Olimpico, claiming 7 out of 12 points.

Additional question for Lazio is, will this be the week Tommaso Rocchi makes an appearance? Rocchi has been out of action since mid-August after injuring himself while on international duty with the Italian Olympic squad.  The 30-year-old captain of the Rome club was Italy’s only over-age player at the tournament in Beijing and medical tests revealed a hairline lower leg fracture.
