Prediction and odds for the game: Roma (11/4) vs Inter (Evens)
We are backing the away win
When: Saturday 4 December 2021, Kick-off 17:00
Where: The Stadio Olimpico
On Saturday evening, Roma host Inter at the Stadio Olimpico, as the reigning Italian champions aim to boost their chances of retaining the Scudetto.
Jose Mourinho’s team have been inconsistent this season. However, the Giallorossi are still fifth-place, occupying the final European berth a Europa League spot. The team from the Italian capital are also just six points shy of the league’s top-four and a win would boost their hopes of playing Champions League next season.
A promising two-match winning run in the Serie A ended last time out, as they suffered a 1-0 defeat against Bologna. The loss also ended a run of two clean sheets in the Italian top-flight.
Roma’s recent league matches have been tight and low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in six of their previous nine matches in the Italian top-flight.
The Giallorossi have produced strong home form of late in Serie A, winning seven of their last nine matches in the Italian top-flight. A key to their recent good home form has been a solid defence, as Mourinho’s team has kept four clean sheets in their last five Serie A games on home soil.
The reigning champions have picked up major positive momentum in recent months. In fact, the visitors have now recorded four straight league wins following a 2-0 home win against Spezia. The victory was the Nerazzurri’s fourth consecutive win in all competitions, while also making them undefeated in ten competitive matches.
A seven-match undefeated run in the Italian top-flight has seen Simone Inzaghi’s team surge back into the race for the Scudetto, as they are now just two points adrift of league leaders Napoli in the table.
Considering Inter’s recent record it is unsurprising that the Nerazzurri have impressed at both ends of the field of late. Against Spezia, they kept their fourth clean sheet in six Serie A games. The visitors have also been prolific in attack in recent weeks, scoring at least two goals in five of their last six matches in the Italian top-flight.
Inter have not been the most convincing away team of late in the Italian top-flight, although they have been relatively difficult to beat on their travels, as they have suffered defeat in just one of their previous eight away matches in the Italian top-flight.
Roma are the sort of team that you don’t always know what you are going to get from them. Inter seem to have found a similar sort of consistency to last season when they won the Scudetto. We are backing the Nerazzurri to record another win in this clash. The other bet we are backing is Lautaro Martinez to be an anytime goalscorer, as the Argentinian has looked dangerous in recent outings.
Our Tips: We are backing the away win at evens and/or Lautaro Martinez to be an anytime goalscorer at odds of 6/4. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
