Roma’s first Coppa Italia match of the 2019-20 campaign may be the most important of the season after their recent defeats against Torino and Juventus.

The Giallorossi on the road to Parma on Thursday to play their first Coppa Italia match of the current campaign.

D’Aversa’s side would be happy to replicate the result of last November 10th (2-0), but Paulo Fonseca hopes for a different outcome.

The Portuguese coach won’t have Edin Dzeko available, though. Nikola Kalinic will be in charge of the offensive operations. As Fonseca stated a few days ago, Justin Kluivert may not be available for Parma-Roma. But the Dutchman is doing what he can to return in the group.

The next Coppa Italia match at the Stadio Tardini is a key clash for the ambitions of the Giallorossi. After the two burning home defeats against Torino and Juventus, and with Zaniolo out until the end of the season, Roma need a prompt reaction.

Parma, however, are back on track. Yesterday, D’Aversa’s men won the match against Lecce (2-0). In the last 5 Serie A clashes, Parma lost only once, against Atalanta at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri in Bergamo (5-0).
