Key Matchup

Kostas Manolas (Roma) vs. Andrea Belotti (Torino)

Coming off arguably his worst performance in a Roma shirt, Kostas Manolas will have the tough task of keeping highly-rated Italian U-21 striker Andrea Belotti at bay on Wedensday. The Greek international had a terrible performance at the weekend against Atalanta and was unable to stop both Papu Gomez and Marco Borriello, who netted a brace against the Giallorossi. Roma are one of the worst teams in Italy at keeping clean sheets (they only have 6 all season, which is tied for third-worst) and must tighten-up defensively after some sloppy play over the last few weeks. Torino are in fine form so Roma must do their best to try and curb the confidence the Granata will arrive to the capital with.
