Inter Milan vs. Roma Betting Tips: Back goals at the San Siro
A Saturday evening Italian treat can be viewed live on BT Sport 2 at 5pm when Inter Milan take on Roma at the San Siro, a familiar venue Jose Mourinho returns to but will not be on the touchline for due to a suspension for losing his head in the 1-0 defeat to Atalanta.
Both clubs entered the season with their own title aspirations, yet each trudged into the international break on the back of streaky league runs consisting of WLWL from their previous four matches.
With early unbeaten pacesetters Napoli and Atalanta already four points clear of Roma (6th) and five points ahead of Inter (7th), neither team will want to lose further ground this weekend.
Below we bring you three tips…
Inter Milan vs Roma Tips
Inter Milan vs Roma is a Serie A fixture that’s not exactly a stranger to goalmouth action. In fact, it’s a duel that’s been drenched in goals.
Both teams have found the back of the net in a hefty 13 of the last 16 meetings, 11 of which have gone over 2.5 goals. There have been a whopping 19 goals in the last five league clashes, averaging out at just under four goals per game.
With the likes of Paulo Dybala, Tammy Abraham, Lautaro Martínez, Edin Džeko and potentially Romelu Lukaku - the Belgian may not recover in time - taking to the field on Saturday, we’re expecting more of the same this time around, with over 2.5 Goals and BTTS kicking off the betting action at 11/10 with bet365.
Continuing on the goals theme, I’m also backing 2/1 for both Roma and Inter to score in the second-half.
As mentioned above, there have been some big scorelines in battles between these two teams in recent years, with the last four league games ending 3-1, 0-3, 3-1 (all Inter), 2-2 and 2-2.
BTTS in the second-half has landed in three of those five clashes.
Inter Milan may be struggling for consistency, but they can draw on a 100% home record having won all three league games played in front of their own fans - a run that’s extended to seven if including the backend of last season.
Furthermore they’ve not lost to Roma in 11, winning each of the last four, while Inter’s matches have contained the highest number of goals in Serie A so far this season (24: 13 scored, 11 conceded).
A home win can be backed at evens, but given goals have been a key theme of this article, we’re having a tiny go on a correct score of 3-2 in favour of the hosts, which can be backed at a best-priced 29/1 with SBK.
