A rejuvenated Roma sit just one point off fourth placed Milan and six off their weekend opponents Inter Milan, meaning a win here for the visitors will tighten the Champions League battle and put them right into the mix. Form Labs bring you their betting preview and tips for the game and if value for the Italian League is what you are after then check out our selection of enhanced odds available in our FanBoosts section.
Plenty At Stake For Both Inter And Roma
This is a massive game for both sides, though especially for the visitors as they trail fourth-placed Milan by just the single point, while Atalanta sit just one point further back as the race for fourth looks set to go down to the wire.
Roma are frankly quite lucky to still be in with a shout and owe a lot to Milan dropping points in recent weeks, though their record versus the top six this term suggests a stalemate is the best they can hope for.
Indeed, they’ve drawn five of eight winless such encounters, while Inter have been a rather more successful W3-D2-L2 against the same bracket of teams as they won two of three unbeaten home matches.
De Rossi’s Absence A Big Loss For Roma
While Roma will have to make do without 35-year-old captain Daniele De Rossi after he was forced off injured in the win over Udinese last weekend, Inter have benefited from the return of Mauro Icardi to the fold.
The Argentine should have gotten his name onto the scoresheet in the 3-1 win over Frosinone, though the Nerazzurri have now scored seven goals in three matches since his return, with Icardi registering a goal and two assists himself.
Meanwhile, Roma have scored 19% more goals and conceded 29% more when De Rossi hasn’t featured in the initial line-up since the start of last season, suggesting there could be goals on the cards in this one.
Inter v Roma Betting Tips
Indeed, these two played out a 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture, meaning both teams have found the net in all but one of the nine head-to-head meetings since 2014/15 (W3-D3-L3 each).
We certainly expect the host to register as since Roma’s opening day win over Torino this season, the visitors have only kept six clean sheets from 31 matches, with four of these coming against bottom-six opponents.
However, Inter have only managed to win three of their last 10 against top-half outfits, and so a draw with goals is our preference in this clash.
