Their suspended match against Roma will resume on 70 minutes on Thursday with the scores level 1-1 while the remaining five matches are against Bologna (away), Napoli (home), Lecce (away), Empoli (home) and Frosinone (away).Zemura became the first Zimbabwean to play in the Serie A and his debut season has seen him play 24 matches, earning one goal in the 1-1 draw at home to Cagliari on February 18 and one yellow card in the 3-3 draw at home to Verona on December 3. The 24-year-old former Bournemouth left back made 14 substitute appearances, nine of them as a left defensive midfielder and once as an attacking midfielder.

He also made two appearances in the Coppa Italia.
