AS Roma goes to Palermo to forget the shocking defeat against BATE Borisov. The upcoming Serie A match will not be easy for Garcia’s guys. Probable lineups.
Rudi Garci and his team are in Palermo to collect 3 points and to forget the Champions League defeat against BATE Borisov. This is a very important clash for AS Roma because the team needs to regain confidence and, moreover, three points that would be vital to get closer to top spot before the international break. Rudi Garcia is, for the first time, in danger. Even if the AS Roma President James Pallotta confirmed the Frenchman an eventual defeat could rapidly change the cards on the table.
Garcia seems to have decided to begin the match against Palermo with almost the same starting 11 that faced BATE Borisov. The only two exceptions should be Torosidis as right-back and Florenzi as offensive winger to replace Manuel Iturbe.
