Hellas Verona vs Roma
Italy – Serie A

Even though they have only beaten similar-rated teams so far, Verona performed rather well against the likes of Napoli, Juventus and Inter, and Roma will have that in mind when they take a trip to Marc’Antonio Bentegodi this weekend.

Hellas Verona vs Roma: Prediction
The Scaligers moved to 8th position on the Serie A ladder after a 1-0 win over Vincenzo Montella’s Fiorentina. Ivan Juric’s side are in fine form at the moment, winning three of their last five league games.
They still have the second meanest defence in the league with 11 goals conceded. Even though they have only beaten similar-rated teams so far, Verona performed rather well against the likes of Napoli, Juventus and Inter, and Roma will have that in mind when they take a trip to Marc’Antonio Bentegodi this weekend.
Hellas Verona picked up 9 points from 7 home games. They’re averaging 0.88 goals scored per game, whilst allowing 0.57.
Host of players will be evaluated before the game – Kumbulla, Badu, Bessa, Tupta, Veloso and Pazzini are all questionable.
Roma bounced back from a disappointing loss at Ennio Tardini with a convincing 3-0 with over Brescia. Paulo Fonseca’s team enjoyed more than 60% of the ball possession and created 11 goal-scoring opportunities against the struggling Rondinelle.
The Giallorossi are currently occupying 5th position in the Serie A standings, tied with fourth-placed Sardinians. They will be looking to get their 4th W on the road on Sunday.
ASR have 3-2-1 record on their travels this season, scoring 1.33 goals per game while shipping, for their standards, very impressive 0.67 goals per bout.
Zappacosta, Cristante and Kalinic are out with injuries, Pastore is questionable, Zaniolo is suspended for the visiting side.
Team from the capital got most of their injured players back and some of the lads are playing fantastic at the moment. But, without Zaniolo in the team, I will not pick them to win. Instead I’ll go with BTTS – Yes. Verona have found the back of the net against better sides this season.
Both teams are much more active in the second half – Verona games at home tend to be boring, especially in the first half, but they always go for it after the break.
Roma have an average of 1.67 goals in the second part of the game.
