SPAL Coach Leonardo Semplici is “convinced we’ll make a good impression, even if Roma are one of the best sides in Serie A.”

It kicks off on Friday at 17.30 GMT, click here for a match preview.

“I am convinced that my team will make a good impression, even if we are up against Roma, who are one of the best sides in Serie A,” said Semplici in his Press conference.

It has been a rough week for the Spallini, who fumbled a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1 at Chievo in Serie A, then were knocked out of the Coppa Italia by Serie B outfit Cittadella.

“I certainly don’t need to ask the players to give their best. If we leave out the performance against Cittadella, then SPAL have always played good football this season and I cannot complain about that.

“I’ll choose at the last minute who starts between Michele Cremonesi and Marios Oikonomou, but the intention is to confirm the same XI that played against Chievo.

“I’ll continue to evaluate, as Federico Bonazzoli is training well and one of the candidates, along with Sergio Floccari and Marco Borriello.”
