Roma essentially made only one major acquisition in the winter transfer window, taking central midfielder Sergio Oliveira from Porto. The Portuguese are meant to solve the problem of getting the ball from defence to attack, and he showed in the best possible way in his debut game for the Giallorossi against Empoli. Oliveira scored a goal and once assisted Tammy Abraham. The final score of the match was 4:2 in Rome's favour. An encouraging result.
Including the win over Empoli, the Romans have won three in a row. Before that, José Mourinho's side beat Lecce in the Cup and managed to beat Cagliari in Serie A. Roma sit 6th in the league table. They are unlikely to go any higher, but they are not looking like the underdog in the race for 6th place and a place in the Conference League.
The Genoa club's new investors have already made two coaching changes since the start of the season. Ballardini replaced Shevchenko, and now the Ukrainian specialist has been replaced by German Alexandre Blessin. Previously, he had worked at the Leipzig and Ostend junior teams. The first setback, however, could prove to be a game-changer.
In the first match under Blessin, Genoa played a 0:0 home defeat to Udinese. The result is clear from the game that the team under the German coach will try to play on the attack. The goal-kicking statistics for the match against Udine are 10:2 in favour of the Genoese.Watch Free Live Stream

Roma is playing too inconsistently to bet on Mourinho's side, winning even a home game against Genoa. The Griffins, meanwhile, appear to have made the right move by replacing the German specialist with a modern coach. Combined with the transfers that the team made during the winter and the Genoese have signed nine players, including, for example, Nadjem Amiri from Bayer, it should be stated that the situation doesn't look hopeless anymore.
Prediction: Genoa will face Roma with the most challenging resistance.
