However, the Yellow and Reds are unbeaten in their last two matches at home in Serie A having recorded one draw and one win. 
Gianluca Roma, the Roma defender, has reflected on their struggles in the league and he apologized to their fans after their defeat to Sampdoria. 
“We need to apologize to the fans, stay quiet and do everything we can to turn this form around and finish the season as well as possible," Mancini said. 
“It’s not an excuse, but in a tough league campaign like Serie A when you start to lose a lot of important players it is clear that you are going to run into some difficulties. 
“The position in the table is what we warrant. As I’ve said, it’s better for us to keep quiet.”
