Roma take on Serie C side Triestina in their third pre-season friendly encounter on Wednesday at Nereo Rocco Stadium.
The Serie A club have had a great pre-season so far, scoring 12 goals in two games and have adjusted well to Jose Mourinho's tactics.
The first friendly against Montecatini ended in a massive 10-0 win and their most recent game against Ternana ended in a comfortable 2-0 win.
After the clash against Roma, Triestina will take on another capital club in Lazio on Friday in their final pre-season game.
⚽️ Anche oggi, le marcature le ha aperte Carles Perez!

Triestina vs Roma Head-to-Head
The two clubs have met each other 61 times across all competitions. They have a very old rivalry and their first meeting came all the way back in 1928. Most of their encounters have come in Serie A and the Italian Cup.
As expected, Roma have a better record in these meetings and have 27 wins to their name. Triestina have 13 wins to their name but their last win over Roma was in the 1958-59 campaign.
They last met in an Italian Cup fixture in 2010. Roma recorded a comfortable 3-1 win in that fixture.
