After a sputtering start to their 2017-2018 Serie A campaign, Roma clapped back in a big way over the weekend, dusting off Verona in a 3-0 romp at the Olimpico. While that resounding victory won’t silence all her critics, Roma seems newly resolved now that they’ve rallied around the flag. Fortunately for Eusebio Di Francesco, the fixture list has provided another seemingly soft serve opponent, Serie A debutants Benevento Calcio, holders of perhaps the best crest in all of football…the wizards!
So, will Roma be able to hand this gaggle of Harry Potters or are they bound to be cursed the minute they enter the Stadio Ciro Vigorito. Through four matches, the Wizards have yet to score a goal or garner a single point. Life in the big time is tough, doubly so if it’s your first trip to the Serie A party.
I don’t know enough about fictional adolescent English wizards to make a clever subtitle, so we’ll be plain and obvious. Having said that, facing a club for the first time, and on the road no less, can and has spelled doom for Roma before, so we can’t simply assume this will be a walkover.
Benevento may be new to Serie A, but they do have a few familiar faces to Roma fans. The Wizards feature former Atalanta midfielder Marco D’Alessandro as well as former Roma farmhand Luca Antei, but the real peacock of this club is Amato Ciciretti, Benevento’s number ten and himself a born and bred Roman.
