Roma vs Inter Match Prediction

By Phill Barrs

In the not-so-distant past, this fixture determined the title- most notably in 2009/10. Things have changed since then, though, and they now see Inter chasing Roma as they try to get back to the top. The quick return of Luciano Spalletti- who spent two spells in charge at the Stadio Olimpico- will only spice up this match. Both sides got off to winning starts last weekend. Roma got a 0-1 win from their tricky trip to Atalanta thanks to an Aleksandar Kolarov free kick on 31 minutes. Inter started with a 3-0 win against Fiorentina on Sunday. Mauro Icardi got things started with a sixth minute penalty. He'd doubled the advantage with his second just nine minutes later. They sealed up the points 11 minutes from time through Ivan Perisic's goal. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Roma won both home and away last season against the Nerazzuri, but they trail in the all-time head to head charts. Inter had a fantastic preseason, and they have continued that over into the season proper. They might be the away side here, but they will be a stern test for Roma provided they keep it tight at the back. There's nothing to suggest that they won't, either, because they have that new base in the center of the park. While Roma's is very strong, they can be caught quite narrow. Inter have a decided advantage on the wings, and we think that could see them come in and grab something from the match. A draw here can bring you 13/5 odds, or an Inter win is at 15/8. Ivan Perisic, a winger, to score a goal here is at 12/5 odds, and could be a great bet to make given Roma's injury issues out wide.

Roma Preview

Roma have gotten off to a good start with their win against a very tricky Atalanta team last week. It might just have been a one goal win via a sneaky free kick, but it shows that Roma have grown a little bit. In the past, they have been undone on tough away trips, but they stuck to their task well and got through with all three points. The free kick ability of Kolarov is going to be a big plus all season long to them, but you do wonder how he will hold up with the younger players up top. He and their makeshift right back for this match will have a lot of pressure on them, and that could be an avenue by which Inter attack them.

Roma Team News

Roma will be missing three full backs as Emerson, Rick Karsdorp, and Bruno Peres all will be out. Winger Juan Iturbe joined Tijuana in midweek, so he is no longer with the team.

Inter Preview

Inter Milan lived up to their potential last weekend as they hit top form with a 3-0 win. Two men that were particularly effective, though, they didn't make it on the score sheet were center midfielders Valero and Vecino, who had both moved from Fiorentina to Inter. With them at the base, Spalletti has a foundation for the team to play from now. And it showed as their attack was much more free and able to play off one another. There is a bit of bad blood between the manager and his former club, and he would love to come in and show them just how it's done with a famous victory for his new side.

Inter Team News

Spalletti has no injuries or suspensions to deal with as his new side meet his old one. He has seen Joao Cancela come in from Valencia, though, while Geoffrey Kondogbia has moved in the opposite direction. Defender Jeison Murillo has also moved to the Spanish club.
