Verona have found life tough back in Serie A and are unlikely to get a reprieve from their early struggles when visiting Roma on Saturday night.
The hosts may not quite be the same force as when finishing runners-up last season, but they should be too strong for a team ranked among the favourites to go straight back down.
We’re snapping up 9/10 for a home win to nil in our Roma vs Verona betting predictions.
A Look At Roma’s Betting Odds
Roma were content to sit back and grind out a goalless draw with Atletico Madrid in Tuesday’s Champions League group-stage opener.
Allison made more saves than any other keeper in European action that night, while the Italian outfit had just one shot on target from Radja Nainggolan.
Eusebio Di Francesco should show more ambition here, though, and the Roma fans will be eager to see a more positive display than when losing 3-1 at home to Inter in their last Serie A fixture.
A previous 1-0 victory at Atalanta was more encouraging, however, and the Giallorossi should find this weekend’s company more conducive too.
Former Manchester City forward Edin Dzeko picked up the Golden Boot in Italy last term and we like 14/1 he strikes first in a 3-0 win scorecast for our Roma vs Verona betting tips.
A Look At Verona’s Betting Odds
Verona only claimed one away win when finishing bottom of the table a couple of years ago, scoring just 13 goals from 19 road trips during that campaign.
Although coming straight back up, the early signs are that they will struggle again this term, with a goalless draw at Crotone coming in between heavy home defeats against Napoli and Fiorentina.
The only goal they have scored so far was an 83rd-minute consolation from the penalty spot in a 3-1 loss to Napoli.
Defenders Alex Ferrari and Samuel Souprayen were taken off at half-time during last week’s 5-0 drubbing by Fiorentina and Fabio Pecchia clearly has a big job on his hands.
He may seek to batten down the hatches here, though, so a saver on the hosts to win 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 at 9/5 appeals from the Roma vs Verona odds.
ROMA 0-0 Atletico Madrid
VERONA 0-5 Fiorentina
Head-to-head: Roma 1-1 Verona, Verona 1-1 Roma, Verona 1-1 Roma, Roma 2-0 Verona, Verona 1-3 Roma, Roma 3-0 Verona
