Roma vs Inter Milan
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 19 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:45 UK/ 21:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico.
I Nerazzurri have a massive opportunity at hand this Sunday. They are currently six points below defending champions Juventus. However, the Old Lady are going through a dry spell, and they are pitted against Lazio this game week.
Likely, they could drop points, and if Antonio Conte’s men manage to secure a victory, they could even reduce the gap to three points. Their high point since the season resumed has surely been the return to form of Alexis Sanchez.
Meanwhile, La Lupa are safely placed fifth in the table at the moment. They are practically out of contention for the Champions League, and they have a buffer of four points to keep their Europa ticket safe.
Still, Milan have made it their mission to displace Paulo Fonseca’s men from their spot, and logic dictates that the team should secure a few points more to be away from Milan’s radar.
What these all suggest is that – the teams are not under pressure to win, but they have a lot to gain if they are able to secure the three points this Sunday. Considering the attacking talent on both sides, it seems as if we might witness a goal-fest at the Stadio Olimpico.
Roma vs Inter Milan: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Nine of the previous eleven encounters had goals from both teams.
- Four of the preceding seven clashes had three or more goals.
- The last eight wins were evenly split into four each for either squad.
- Since 2014, every single match-up at this venue had goals from both teams.
- Six of the former nine games at this venue had three or more goals.
Roma vs Inter Milan: Prediction
La Lupa recorded a 2-1 win at home the last match-day, against Verona. Meanwhile, Nerazzurri registered a massive 0-4 victory on the road the last game week, against Spal.
By the looks of things, either team is going after the three points, and they surely do have the talent at disposal to score a lot of goals.
In fact, Fonseca’s men are on a three-game winning run, and had scored two or more goals in nine of their previous fourteen fixtures. They had also won five of their former six home appearances, and scored twice or more in five of their preceding seven games here.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in eight of their last nine overall match-ups, and had scored a total of 21 goals from their previous seven fixtures. Moreover, they have a 100% unbeaten record on the road this season, disregarding games against Barcelona, Juventus, Lazio and Dortmund.
As such, expect goals in plenty as these two in-form teams with enormous offensive talent, take on each other.
