Venue: Busch Stadium (Missouri).
English Premier League side Liverpool will clash with Italian Serie A giants AS Roma in a friendly game on Monday at the Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri.
AS Roma are looking bright in their pre-season for going unbeaten in two straight games after 4-3 lost to Egypt side Al Ahly and hammered AC Pinzolo 16-0.
While Liverpool were able to bounce back from 1-0 defeat to Chelsea as they beat AC Milan 2-0 on Saturday. The defeat to Chelsea is their only loss in the pre-season and was the only goal conceded in all six games. The Reds’ other five victories produced ten goals in their favour, 5-0 win against Fleetwood Town is their heaviest victory in all friendly games this term.
AS Roma’s brilliant 16-0 hammering against AC Pinzolo is the only pre-season game that have produced more goals in one single match this summer. They have won two and lost one of their warm-up matches, with 22 goals scored and allowed six in return.

Liverpool vs Roma: Prediction
Liverpool performance in pre-season so far has been excellent. They play creative football with focus on pressing with pace, and recover quickly when they loose balls in the middle. Jurgen Klopp’s boys have added different dimensions to their game with diamond formation coupled with speed everywhere on the pitch.
As Roma display so far is also not a bad one they look very potent in front of of goal every pre-season game they have played so far have more than three goals picking from a 4-3 lost to Ahly, 16-0 thrashing of AC Pinzolo and a 3-2 win over Terek Grozny looks significant.
Past five meetings between these two clubs have not produced more than three goals in a single game but this game can twist from that record. Roma are yet to test any big-gun, as all their matches were with lower sides. But Liverpool have played the likes of Chelsea and AC Milan, so it tells that at the end the cup will fit a side with more character and ambitions.
Predicted Full Time Score: Liverpool 2-0 AS Roma.
