Key Match-up:

Edin Dzeko  vs. Gianmarco Ferrari

Despite failing to score against Fiorentina, Roma still have the second best attack in Italy. However, the Giallorossi need to be more concrete in attack after missing several chances throughout the week against both Plzen and Fiorentina.

Dzeko, who has two goals in four appearances, needs to get back into form and start bagging goals for Roma. The team’s attack has looked incredibly disjointed over the last few matches and need to return to the free-flowing, beautiful attacking football we saw against Udinese.

Highly rated youngster Gianmarco Ferrari is the only defender of worth on Crotone. Dzeko absolutely must take advantage of the newly promoted team’s poor defence and return to the scoresheet.
