Roma have had a stop-start beginning to the season under Di Francesco and this match has arrived at the right time. They’ve failed to win back-to-back home games, losing first to Inter and then drawing with Atletico, so this game with a struggling Verona is exactly what they need ahead of another easy fixture with Serie A debutants Benevento. Roma have beaten every single side in the bottom half of the table at home last season and there’s no reason they should fail to do likewise on Saturday.
This is a massive opportunity for the Italians and we honestly doubt they’ll blow it up. We would not be surprised to witness a goal fest in what is expected to be a one-way street from the start to the end.
Aleksandr Khatskevish has an impressive attacking lineup and the likes of Mbokani, Kravets and Moraes will clearly have plenty of space to deliver in the final third against Young Boys who have conceded goals to both Partizan and Skenderbeu so far.
The hosts will be extra motivated for the Champions League failure and the home win seems to be the best of the betting calls here at the odds of 4/6.
The Germans are favourites without doubts as they are desperate for points, but the Over 2.5 goals FT seems to be much more appealing option given their poor defensive form in the recent weeks.
The gulf in quality should be notable, but we don’t expect Arsenal to have that easy of a job in front of Red Star’s fans on Thursday.
The Gunners are more than vulnerable at the back with their mixed lineup and we feel Red Star’s attacking line can bag at least one here.
Both teams have pretty strong options in the final third in the likes of Alassane Plea & Mario Balotelli on one and Ciro Immobile on the other side.
Given tboth Nice’s and Lazio’s attacking style of football, we just can’t see a low-scoring affair which is why the best of the betting options would clearly be BTTS at 7/10.
