Club football is finally back, and we are looking to start the weekend with a winning betting pick, so we present you the most accurate Inter v Roma prediction. The match will be played on October 1, 2022, at the Guizeppe Meazza Stadium. Last time around, we accurately predicted Spain to beat Portugal at the odds of 3.20, so we will be looking to continue our good run of form as the Italian Seria A resumes.
The Special One Back To His Old Stomping Grounds
Jose Mourinho is back to his old stomping grounds, but this time leading the opposition. The Special One will forever be loved by the Nerazzuri faithful as he brought them the Champions League title in 2010 after a 45-year wait. Jose, however, will not be on the bench as he was sent off by the referee for protesting during the team’s last game – a 0:1 home defeat against Atalanta. Mou will have to take a seat at the stands, but that should not have a direct impact on this Inter v Roma prediction.
Love him or hate him, no one can’t deny the fact that Mourinho has always lifted his teams and there is always drama and intrigue surrounding his matches. And that’s perhaps what matters in football – to give people something to shout about. After all, this is just a game.
As Things Stand
Focusing on our Inter v Roma prediction, the two teams are separated by just a single point in the Seria A standings after seven rounds. Roma are sixth with 13 points, while Inter are seventh with 12. The similarities, however, don’t end here. Both sides were recently trashed by Udinese, as Roma suffered a shocking 4:0 defeat, while Inter were beaten by 3:1 at the Dacia Arena. Also, both teams lost their last games before the break. Roma were beaten in front of a sold out Olimpico stadium by Atalanta, and they could not even score, despite having plenty of chances. Meanwhile, Inter suffered the aforementioned defeat by Udinese just when they are looking as if they were starting to turn the corner.
History Plays A Role In Sports Predictions
Last season, Inter won all three games against Roma. The Milanese giants won the two Seria A fixtures, 3:1 at home, and 0:3 at the Olimpico. Inter also eliminated Roma from the Copa Italia, which they later went on to win, with a 2:0 victory at the Meazza. In fact, Inter have been unbeaten against Roma in their last ten games. The last time Roma managed to beat Inter was five years ago – a 1:3 win at the Meazza back in 2017. Back then, Dzeko was playing for the Giallorossi along with Mo Salah and a prime Radja Naingolan, who actually scored a brace in that game. Traditions and history are an important factor to consider when you are looking to make accurate sports predictions. In that sense, Inter and Roma typically produce spectacular games with loads of goals. They have scored a total of 21 goals in their last six encounters.
Latest Team News
The international break is an important factor to consider for this Seria A betting pick. It did some players good, but certain players were less fortunate. Lukaku used those ten days to recover from his injury, remained in Milano and trained at the club base. However, Inzaghi confused that Romelo will not feature. Marcelo Brozovic got injured in Croatia’s match against Austria. Lautaro Martinez and Correa travelled halfway across the globe to play for Argentina in the United States. He is yet to return to Italy, re-adapt, get a bit of rest and start training with his teammates again with just three days left before the derby with Roma on Saturday. With that in mind, El Toro might not be in his best condition for this game, and he might even be benched by Simone Inzaghi as the coach must also consider that Inter play a crucial game against Barcelona just three days later.
It does seem that the international break favored Roma a bit more, as the Luppi do not have as many players called up for their national sides. For example, Zaniollo and Tamy Abraham were not called up at all and remained to train in Italy at Roma’s club base. The other star player in attack, Paulo Dybala was also able to use the break to recover from the injury he suffered in the warm up just before the Atalanta game, which he missed. Surprisingly, Dybala did travel to the US to join Argentina, and he will be back in Italy later today, September 28. He will undergo a medical, and he is expected to be given the green light to play against Inter.
