Roma vs Verona
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 31 January 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Olimpico, Rome.
The last game of the Matchday No 20 and the last Serie A fixture for this January will be played at Stadio Olimpico where Roma will play host to top-half rivals Verona.
Considering both sides’ attacking form, we could be in for a highly entertaining evening of football on Sunday in Italian capital. It has by no means been a fantastic season for the Romans, but they still hold the third position in the Serie A standings after 19 rounds.
The hosts are going through a tough period following turbulences on the head coach-captain relations. Paulo Fonseca and Edin Dzeko had a fight which resulted in the Bosnian strikers’ removal from the first team.
Nevertheless, Roma proved to be capable of scoring loads without their talismanic striker in the squad last weekend when they bagged four past Spezia (a 4-3 win).
Borja Mayoral came up with a brace on the occasion. The Spanish striker will certainly make it to the starting line-up on Sunday and he is our top suggestion for the anytime goalscorer bet at the odds of 2.20.
Roma vs Verona Head-to-head
- Roma have been the dominant force in the history of this match-up. They won 12, drew 5, and lost 2 of 19 clashes against I Gialloblu.
- I Giallorossi have been particularly dominant in the clashes at Stadio OIimpico where they picked up eight wins and a draw in nine meetings with Hellas Verona.
- Three of more goals were seen in three of the last four head to head affairs.
Roma vs Verona Prediction
The visitors are one of the most pleasant surprises of the season. They continued to impress last weekend by beating Napoli 3-1 at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi. The team led by Ivan Juric are obviously capable of scoring against any team in the league on their day.
We would not be surprised to see them on the scoresheet here, particularly knowing that the hosts have shipped three goals in their recent home win over Spezia.
As for the outcome, we have to back Giallorossi who have completely dominated this match-up historically. After all, the 1.65 odds offered for the home win are quite attractive knowing that Roma won eight of nine home outings against Verona in the past.
