BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
On Sunday morning, Roma host Inter at the Stadio Olimpico, in a potentially massive game at the top of Serie A.
The Giallorossi are enjoying a strong campaign, as they currently sit third place in the table, three points behind the second-place visitors. A midweek 3-1 win at Crotone means that Paulo Fonseca’s team have now won five of their last six matches in the Italian top-flight.
The team from the Italian capital have been prolific this season in Serie A, as only Atalanta and Sunday’s visitors have scored more than Roma this season in the Italian top-flight.
Roma have been particularly strong at the Stadio Olimpico of late, as they are unbeaten in 12 home games in Serie A, having recorded nine victories. Their potency in front of goal has been the key to their good recent home results, as they have scored at least two goals in ten of those 12 matches.
The Nerazzurri look like genuine title contenders this season, as Antonio Conte’s team are just a point behind league leaders Milan. Despite their lofty league position, Inter suffered a midweek 2-1 defeat at Sampdoria.
The defeat ended an eight-game winning run in the Italian top-flight. The visitors have been prolific of late in Serie A, scoring at least two goals in seven of their last nine league outings.
The defeat at Sampdoria ended a 13-game unbeaten run on their travels in Serie A. Before the defeat, Conte’s team recorded four wins from their previous five away matches in the Italian top-flight.
Roma have several players likely to be out injured for this clash including Antonio Mirante, Leonardo Spinazzola, Pedro, Federico Fazio, Davide Santon, Javier Pastore, Riccardo Calafiori and Nicolo Zaniolo.
Inter are expected to be without Matias Vecino and Andrea Pinamonti through injury.
