Roma vs Inter Milan Betting Tips and Match Prediction

link-sopcast-roma-vs-inter.jpg

A clash in the top 6 of the Serie A dominates the weekend with 4th placed Inter Milan visiting 6th placed Roma. In terms of the form table, it also appears that these two giants are even more closely matched than the League table with Inter lying in 10th and Roma 11th, with only one draw between both teams in the last 6 games. So, both teams appear to either win or lose. Goals seem to be flowing for Roma in the last 6, as they have scored 12 but also conceded 11. Inter, however, seem much meaner, scoring 6 and conceding 6 respectively

Roma appear to be steady at home. They have won 5 and lost just 2, drawing the other 2 games. They enjoy a free scoring attitude too. Roma have scored 23 goals at home, more than 2.5 per game. However, they have conceded 14, joint worst at home in the first 15 home league placings. It is the first half where Roma are very strong indeed, going in at the interval winning 7/9 and losing just once, scoring 14 on the way and conceding just 3. The second half, however, is a different story. Roma have only won in the second half of home games on 4 occasions, indicating they can't follow their first half aggression. They have also lost 4 of their 9 games in the second half at home. They have also conceded 11 in the second half of home games compared to just 3 in the first.

Inter are very strong away from the San Siro. This is demonstrated by their 6/10 wins away. However, they have 0 away draws. Compare this to Roma only drawing 2 home games all season, a point a piece in  this game seems unlikely. In there 10 away games, Inter have scored 16 goals but also conceded 10 – a goal a game. One thing that seems likely are goals, given Roma's 23 home goals in 10 games. In the first half,  Inter are mean. They have conceded just 2 goals in the first half of away games. Surely something has to give in the first half, given Roma, with home advantage, have scored 60% of their home goals in the first half (14 in total)?? However, it appears that the second half is where this game could come to life. Inter have conceded 80 % of their away goals in the second half (8) with Roma only scoring 9 home goals in the second period. However, Roma are shaky in the 2nd half of home games whereas Inter appear to score more fluently in the second half (10/16).

This game really could bring the old Football cliche "It's a game of two halves" to life. Both teams seem to go for it in the second half. One final thing for us to consider before we take a punt. The first half, should, go to Roma. They have gone in at the break ahead in 7/9 games and losing just once. Inter, whilst being top in first half away form, have been behind on 2 occasions at the break and have conceded a measly 2. However, Roma are rampant in the first half at home. Something has to give! The 2nd half should belong to Inter. The fact that Roma concede more than a goal in the 2nd half of home games (11 in total) and Inter have a goal a game record in the second half of away games (10 in total), the second half should be exciting

Roma could also run out of steam following a gruelling – and impressive – win At Fiorentina in the Quarter final of the Coppa Italia. On Wednesday. therefore, they have only 3 clear days to recover and prepare for this forthcoming crucial game. Given all these factors I feel the value is in the following bets.
