Monza vs AS Roma: Preview, kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online

AS Roma travel to in-form Monza as they look to break back into the top four in Serie A, ahead of the visit of Inter at the weekend.


AS Roma look to put their late draw against AC Milan behind them when they visit Monza in Matchday 33 of Serie A on Wednesday, as the race for a top four place heats up.

The Giallorossi looked to have snatched a crucial victory in injury time, only for the Rossoneri to hit back immediately and leave Roma in sixth place, but level on points with Milan and Inter in the battle for a Champions League spot.

Monza, meanwhile, have enjoyed a positive first season in the top flight and find themselves comfortable in 10th place, whilst they have only lost once in their last eight matches.

Monza vs AS Roma: Predicted line-ups

Roma coach Jose Mourinho is in the midst of an injury crisis, with La Gazzetta dello Sport reporting that the coach will be without four defenders for the trip to the Stadio Brianteo.

Chris Smalling, Diego Llorente, Marash Kumbulla, and Rick Karsdorp are all ruled out, meaning Bryan Cristante will drop back into defence.

With Georginio Wijnaldum injured and Nemanja Matic suspended, Mady Camara will partner Edoardo Bove in midfield, whilst Andrea Belotti‘s rib injury sees Stephan El Shaarawy return to the starting line-up.

Monza have no such problems, with their only injury concern being ex-Giallorossi defender Marco D’Alessandro. Pepin is one booking away from a suspension, meanwhile.

Monza predicted XI vs AS Roma (3-4-2-1): Di Gregorio; Izzo, Mari, Caldirola; Ciurria, Pessina, Rovella, Carlos Augusto; Mota, Caprari; Petagna

AS Roma predicted XI vs Monza (3-4-2-1): Rui Patricio; Mancini, Cristante, Ibanez; Spinazzola, Camara, Bove, Zalewski; El Shaarawy, Pellegrini; Abraham
