Tavagnacco v Roma Women preview: Coppa Italia defence begins

Roma Women begin the defence of their Coppa Italia crown with their first group-stage match against Tavagnacco on Saturday.

After lifting the trophy last season, Roma are about to begin the journey towards the defence of their title. First, they must come out on top of a group featuring Tavagnacco and Pomigliano.

The two other opponents in the group have already faced off; Serie A newcomers Pomigliano beat Serie B side Tavagnacco 3-1. Therefore, Roma can already eliminate one of their opponents just by avoiding defeat.

The target, obviously, will be to win and go level on points with Pomigliano, before they meet in December. For now, Roma must focus on the one hurdle ahead of them.

After three wins in a row in the league, Roma have built momentum ahead of this tie. Coach Alessandro Spugna has confirmed there will be some turnover to his lineup, allowing key players more rest before the international break that takes place after this game.

Kick-off is at 9:30am UK time on Saturday.
