Roma vs. Inter Milan – Can De Rossi’s Dream Run Continue Against Serie A Leaders?

The stage is set for a thrilling encounter at Stadio Olimpico this Saturday as in-form Roma, under the guidance of Daniele De Rossi, take on Serie A leaders Inter Milan.

Both teams come into the match on impressive winning streaks, making this one of the most anticipated fixtures of Gameweek No. 24.

Inter Milan: Riding a Wave of Victories

Inter Milan go into this clash boasting a five-game winning streak across all competitions. Their defensive solidity has been key to their success, with an impressive four consecutive clean sheets against formidable opponents like Lazio, Napoli, Fiorentina, and Juventus. This defensive stability, coupled with their dominant performance against Juventus in their last league game, has seen them open up a four-point lead at the top of the table.

Roma’s De Roissance: Can the Magic Continue?

De Rossi has enjoyed a dream start to his managerial career at Roma, collecting a perfect nine points from three games. Their most recent win, a comprehensive 4-0 demolition of Cagliari, showcased their attacking prowess under De Rossi’s leadership. However, this Saturday presents their toughest test yet.

Recent Head-to-Head: Inter Milan in Control

Historically, Inter Milan have dominated the head-to-head battle against Roma, winning six out of the last seven encounters. Notably, Inter secured a narrow 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture earlier this season. Interestingly, none of the last two clashes between these two sides witnessed more than two goals scored.

Prediction: Can Roma Breach Inter’s Fortified Wall?

While Roma have been scoring freely under De Rossi, they now face the Serie A’s most resilient defense.

Inter Milan have conceded only 10 goals in 22 league games, highlighting their defensive solidity. Considering this, and the fact that Inter have recently won three consecutive games with identical 1-0 scorelines, the Under 2.5 goals option seems like a safe bet.

However, Inter’s overall dominance in recent meetings and their current form at the top of the table make them the favorites to win. Given their consistent performances and superior head-to-head record, Inter Milan appear to be the team to beat.

Final Verdict:

Under 2.5 goals FT (1.66 odds): Roma’s attack against Inter’s defense is likely to be a low-scoring affair.

Inter Milan to win (1.90 odds): Considering their recent form and historical dominance, Inter are favorites to secure the victory.
