Roma will look to secure their second win of the Serie A season when they take on Genoa on Thursday night (19:45) at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

Both sides have had difficult starts to the season, with just one point separating them in the table.

Aaron Martin will be absent for the hosts here due to suspension, while Junior Messias could be handed a debut.

As for the visitors, Lorenzo Pellegrini should be back for Roma after missing the last few matches with a muscle injury.

However, long-term absentees Tammy Abraham and Marash Kumbulla are joined by Chris Smalling and Renato Sanches on the sidelines.

Roma to win @ 11/10

Heading into this game, Roma have improved across all competitions, on the back of just one point picked up from their three opening league matches.

A 7-0 victory at home to Empoli on their return to action from the September international break appears to have got them back on track.

Jose Mourinho’s men then followed that up with a hard-fought 2-1 win away to Sheriff Tiraspol in the Europa League group stage last Thursday, before coming close to another win away to Torino at the weekend.

Last week, Genoa sustained their third league loss of the season, going down 1-0 away to Lecce and managing just a solitary shot on target, so I think that Roma can take the three points here.

Both teams to score (no) @ 8/11

Goals have been at a premium for Genoa, who have lost two of their last three games 1-0.

As mentioned above, they could only muster one shot on target against Lecce last time out, so I expect their struggles in front of goal to continue here.

Roma have scored in every game so far this season, and Romelu Lukaku has scored three in his last three, so I think that the visitors will have enough firepower to find the net in this one.
