AS Roma – Verona : Preview & Prediction
Roma and Hellas Verona complete the program of the first Serie A return match against each other at the Olympic Stadium. The latest results have called into question the presence of coach Paulo Fonseca on the Giallorossi bench but after the suffered 4-3 in the league against Spezia the Portuguese remained in his place. The Dzeko case remains unsolved with the Bosnian who wants to leave and trains separately, Calafiori and Zaniolo are out and the various Mkhitaryan, Diawara and Pedro remain in doubt for the match against Ivan Juric’s Hellas Verona who in the last round inflicted a sound lesson (3-1) on Napoli. Roma will have to be careful against a team that has scored in 5 of their last 6 away games. Scaligeri without the suspended Magnani and with many players struggling with physical problems: Veloso certainly out, Benassi and Vieira with a good chance of not being there and doubts for the presence of Sturaro and Ruegg.
In 12 of the last 14 Serie A home games, Roma have scored at least 2 goals.
There have been 8 Over 2.5 in the last 9 matches of Roma in Serie A.
There have been 2 Over 2.5 in the last 2 direct comparisons. 3-0 at the table of the first leg is not included in this statistic.
From 1996 to today, or in 18 consecutive matches, Roma have always scored against Verona. 3-0 at the table of the first leg is not included in this statistic.
Bookmakers who give Roma the clear favorite in this challenge but after the latest tests and the Dzeko case, something might not “square”. Hence the idea of betting on Over 2.5, an option that occurs very frequently with the Giallorossi on the pitch.
