Siena take on stuttering Roma tomorrow night, but Coach Giuseppe Sannino is confident “the Giallorossi will be a revelation.”
Going into the midweek round, both clubs are still looking for their first wins and have just one point in the Serie A table, despite the difference in expectations and prestige.
“It will be a delicate encounter in a wonderful stadium,” said Siena boss Sannino.
“I always like to be against the grain, but I think the Giallorossi will be the revelation of this season.
“I know how they work, holding possession, spreading the play around the field. They have an attacking mentality and play with seven forwards.
“We're going to Roma with great respect, knowing we are playing against real champions, but facing them must be a source of pride for us and further motivation to make our fans happy.”
Siena started strong, holding Catania to a stalemate, then were narrowly beaten 1-0 by Juventus, but are yet to score a goal.
“We have a long way to improve, especially in attack, but let's be clear that I mean the attacking movement and not just specifically the strikers.”
