Italian Serie A club AS Roma secured its place in the Coppa Italia final as they blew AC Milan out of the competition after a 5-3 aggregate victory in yesterday’s match. Roma will now face the winner of the second-leg match between Inter Milan and Sampdoria on Thursday. Inter is already leading the aggregate score with 3-0.
Roma’s form has been consistently improving over the past few months, and although they’re currently playing without proper strikers, their midfield has proven itself to be one of the strongest in Serie A because of the presence of Perrotta, Mancini, Pizzarro and Totti. The club has got big games coming up now such as the fixtures against Inter and Lyon in February. Roma has also loaned Francesco Tavano and Christian Wilhelmsson from Valencia and Nantes respectively, so Spalletti just has to keep his players focused and they might even break the Inter curse that has been following them for the past two years.
