Ahead of facing Juventus this evening, Roma manager Luis Enrique has revealed that he is not feeling the pressure despite his team losing five of their last eight games as Bet365 announce a free bet offer of £200 for betting on any of tonight’s football matches.
Roma are currently 11th in Serie A which is far from disastrous, but their fans expect them to be pushing for Europe, so there is no doubt that a more positive run of form is needed.
Bet365 have been in touch to tell us they will offer bets worth £200 to spend on any game tonight, including all the action from Stamford Bridge! Pick up your exclusive £200 free bet offer here – be quick – limited offer!
The criticism has stepped up a notch in the last week or so too, with a 2-0 defeat at Udinese followed by a 3-0 reverse at the hands of Fiorentia most recently.
Manager Enrique is taking it all in his stride though, saying: “The only thing that worries me is that the team to beat is Juventus. The rest does not bother me.”
“Juve is a very strong team and has a great coach. I consider this game the most difficult because Juve are in great form.”
“We will need to go out on the pitch without fear and showing the best Roma in order to beat a very strong Juve.”
Victory tonight would be very welcome for Roma of course. Three points could take them as high as 6th in the table, something which would ease the pressure on the coaching staff a great deal.
As Enrique mentions though, Juventus are in good form and will be eyeing a return to the top of the table this evening.
The Italian giants are unbeaten so far this season and have won five of their last six matches in Serie A. They would go two points clear at the top with a win tonight too – and still have a game in hand on many – so they are in a good position right now.
Looking at the team news for this one, Roma will be without defensive duo Marco Cassetti and Simon Kjaer, although they are boosted by the return of captain and star striker Francesco Totti.
As for Juventus, they don’t have any fresh injury problems as they look to return to the top of Serie A.
Tonight’s action gets underway at 7.45pm this evening.
