Roma Women v Como preview: Time to confirm Coppa Italia semi-final place

Roma Women will be hoping to confirm their place in the Coppa Italia semi-finals in their last match before the international break.

Alessandro Spugna’s side host Como on Sunday for the second leg of their quarter-final. They are protecting a 3-0 lead from the reverse fixture.

Going into the game on the back of a four-match winning run, Roma’s confidence is high and it should be a straightforward task. However, they still need the right approach.

The welcome returns of captain Elisa Bartoli, plus fellow Roman Claudia Ciccotti, should be beneficial. However, Alice Corelli is ruled out through injury and new signing Milica Mijatovic is not included for family reasons.

Youth products Mina Bergersen, Anastasia Ferrara and Eleonora Pacioni have all been called up.

For the opponents, there could be another outing for ex-Roma defender Emma Lipman – formerly interviewed on this website but now lining up against the club.

Roma retain the tag of favourites as they look to take another step towards retaining their first ever trophy from last season.

The semi-final would then be between the winners of this game and Empoli, who advanced at Fiorentina’s expense on away goals on Saturday.

Roma’s game kicks off at 11:30am UK time.
