Verona vs Roma
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 19 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).
Verona was at the ninth spot last season in the Serie A table with 12 wins and 13 draws to pick up 49 points in the record from their 38 league appearances. They had only one win within the last five clashes in the schedule, and will play after a 3-0 loss on the road against Genoa last time out in the contest.
Roma is one of the strongest squads in the mix, and holding them at bay will be a hard task for the home team in the upcoming match. The visitor was at the 5th position in the table last term with a 21 points lead over the host. They were on a four-game winning streak, following a 1-3 win on the road against Juventus in the schedule.

Verona vs Roma Prediction
Hellas Verona was a promoted side last season, but they stayed in the top tier for yet another season in their records. It has to be noted that the host had averaged close to 3.0 goals in their overall campaign last season.
However, coming to their h2h meetings with Roma, both their h2h clashes saw over 3 goals and BTTS in each fixture with Verona losing all the points. Even in a new edition, it is highly unlikely that the host gets an upper hand against Paulo Fonseca’s men in Serie A.
Besides, Verona has only one win from their recent nine league clashes in their schedule. And the last time Roma lost to the host here was 24 years ago in 1996. They then lost four of the following eight h2h home matches with the Yellow and Reds, including the recent two fixtures.
Based on these stats, the draw no bet over Roma is probably the safest approach towards the game for the punters to yield decent returns. Another option includes the chance of a BTTS as mentioned earlier, which has been a recurrence in the last term h2h clashes.
