Monza vs Roma – Latest from the Camps, Probable Lineups, and Match Weather

Monza vs Roma: As the highly anticipated clash between Monza and Roma looms on the horizon, both teams are gearing up for battle with key players sidelined and tactical adjustments in the works.

Roma’s Wealth of Choices:

Despite missing Karsdorp and Abraham, Roma’s coach, Daniele De Rossi, faces a pleasant headache of plenty in team selection. Svilar appears set to guard the goal, with a potential return to the 4-3-3 formation. Notably, Gianluca Mancini is poised to take on a wider role on the right, compensating for the absence of the Dutch full-back. Smalling and Ndicka are likely to anchor the central defense, with Spinazzola edging out Angelino on the left. In midfield, the trio of Cristante, Paredes, and Pellegrini seems indispensable, while Lukaku is expected to feature prominently alongside Dybala and Stephan El Shaarawy in the attacking trio. The bench offers a plethora of options for in-game changes.

Monza’s Tactical Conundrum:

Monza’s manager, Palladino, faces a dilemma regarding the team’s tactical setup, oscillating between a 3-4-2-1 and a 4-2-3-1 formation. With Izzo serving a suspension, either Caldirola or D’Ambrosio is poised to fill the defensive void. Birindelli and Carboni are expected to operate on the flanks, while Gagliardini and Pessina are likely to form the midfield duo. Upfront, the competition intensifies between Valentin Carboni and Maldini for a spot in the attacking midfield trio, while Colpani and Djuric are certain starters.
