It has been seldom in recent games that Hellas Verona haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Hellas Verona have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, shipping 10 goals along the way. We will have to find out whether or not that trend can be sustained into this next match.
Heading into this fixture, Hellas Verona are without a win at home for the past 10 matches in the league. They will be so desperate to end this run.
Roma will come into the meeting following a 5-1 Conference League win with the eclipse of CSKA Sofia in their last fixture.
For Roma, the goalscorers were Lorenzo Pellegrini (25', 62'), Stephan El Shaarawy (38'), Gianluca Mancini (82') and Tammy Abraham (84'). Graham Carey (10') scored for CSKA Sofia.
Indicating their fondness for fruitful matches, goals have been scored 23 times in the prior six matches in which Roma have sent out their troops, yielding an average of 3.83 goals for each fixture. Their opponents have hit 4 of this grand total.
Coming into this contest, Roma are unbeaten in their previous 2 league matches away from home.

Team News: Hellas Verona
The Hellas Verona manager Eusebio Di Francesco has no fitness worries to speak of coming into this game with a completely healthy squad available to select from.
Team News: Roma
Roma boss José Mourinho has to choose a team with limited availability. Matías Viña (Bruised Knee) and Leonardo Spinazzola (Achilles tendon rupture) are not able to play.
Our thinking is that Hellas Verona will need things to go their way to break down this Roma lineup who we think should be able to grind out a win.
We therefore fancy a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 win for Roma when the full-time whistle blows.
