Fixtures with Roma have often been absorbing encounters lately with a lot of goalmouth action being the norm. Over their past six clashes, a total of 25 goals have been recorded for both teams combined (at an average of 4.17 goals per game) with 16 of those being chalked up by i Giallorossi. Nonetheless, we must now wait to see whether such a trend will be sustained in this upcoming game or not.
Their past results show that Roma:
- are unbeaten in the league by Inter Milan in their last 5 games.
- have not emerged victorious against Inter Milan in their last 6 league matches.
- are unbeaten in their last 12 home league matches. It's been impressive.
Following on from a loss in their previous game against Sampdoria in Serie A action, Inter Milan and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that match, Inter Milan had 63% possession and 23 attempts on goal with 7 on target. The only player to score for Inter Milan was Stefan de Vrij (65'). Sampdoria got 10 shots at goal with 3 on target. Antonio Candreva (23') and Keita Baldé (38') scored for Sampdoria.
Inter Milan have regularly broken through opposing defences in their most recent fixtures, having scored 15 goals in their previous 6 matches. While their manager Antonio Conte will no doubt take that as a positive sign, Nerazzurri can also improve defensively after being scored against in 5 of those same matches.
Taking a look at their past results, Inter Milan:
- have left without a victory over Roma in games played away from home for the previous 2 league matches.
- haven't been beaten by Roma when having played them away from home in the previous 3 league matches.

Inter manager Antonio Conte has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Matías Vecino (Knee Injury), Andrea Pinamonti (Ankle problems) and Danilo D'Ambrosio (Sideband injury) won’t be making appearances.
In our view, Inter Milan and Roma should be able to score more than one goal each in what is shaping up to be a fairly even contest.
