AS Roma vs Inter Milan
2016/17 Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday, 2 October 2016
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK,
Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Rome.
AS Roma find themselves 7th in the league standings after a disappointing 3-1 defeat at Torino on the matchday 6. This was their second defeat in three matches and second in a row away from home in Serie A. They are yet to win a match away from home this season with their away trip this season ending in a 2-2 stalemate at Cagliari. But they are coming on the back of a 100% win record at home after 3 matches at the Stadio Olimpico.
Inter Milan on the other hand are showing strong signs of improvement after suffering a defeat on the opening day of the new league season. They are currently on a 5 match unbeaten run, with 3 wins and 2 draws. They have also won in their last 2 away trips, 2-1 at Pescara and 2-0 at Empoli. They were held to a 1-1 draw at home at home by Bologna and Frank de Boer for a much better performance in the all-important fixture against Roma.

Roma vs Inter Milan: Prediction
Roma despite their poor showing on the road, are an exceptionally good side while playing in front of their home crowd. They also hold a strong head-to-head record against Inter Milan in recent years at home. And once against they could go in as favourites and come out with maximum points from this game.
Considering the current form of the two sides involved, we also expect the match to see a higher number of goals than in the two clashes of previous season.
