One of the main matches of the 24th round of Serie A will bring a clash between Inter Milan and Roma. Roma, after the dismissal of Mourinho and the arrival of De Rossi, cheered up and gave 3 wins in a row. The team reacted well to the reshuffle of coaches and is gradually finding its game. Nevertheless, the initial euphoria and courage will be seriously tested in the match with the leader of the table, given that in a few days Roma will play in the playoffs of the Europa League.

Inter, after defeating Juventus, strengthened its status as the leader of the table and continues to move systematically towards the next championship. Simone Inzaghi's team is moving perfectly along the Serie A distance and gaining points even if there is a drawdown in playing qualities or injuries to players. But, the Nerazzurri go to Olimpico in an optimal composition and in a great mood after defeating their main competitor.

Roma vs. Inter Milan Preview 

Roma Preview

What catches the eye after De Rossi's arrival is the transition to a 4-defender scheme and the higher position of Lorenzo Pellegrini. Despite this, Roma are still heavily dependent on the form and availability of Paulo Dybala, who, under both Mourinho and De Rossi, is a key player in this squad. After not very confident matches against Verona and Salernitana (where Roma won anyway), the Romans held a benchmark match against Cagliari (4-0). De Rossi's course towards a more active and flanked game is gradually becoming noticeable, but it is still unclear whether the three-win series is a reaction of the players to the change of coach, or the beginning of a structural revolution of the team's game. The match with Inter will be a real test of the strength of the capital's team.

Inter Milan Preview

Inter is confidently moving along the distance of the season, without showing long-term and structural drawdowns, which shows the class of the team and the excellent work of the coaching staff. Inter had a difficult calendar, given the two Super Cup matches in Saudi Arabia, and then two meetings with the assertive Fiorentina and Juventus. Nevertheless, Inzaghi's team emerged victorious from all meetings, extending the winning streak to 6 consecutive matches. Inter still looks more convincing than Roma, rightly coming to the capital as a favourite. Despite the change of Roma's coach, the statistics of the last 5 face-to-face meetings of the teams are also indicative - 4 Inter wins against 1 Roma victory.

Betting Tips for Roma vs. Inter Milan

Inter Milan to Win

Inter is currently the main contender for the championship, given the overall quality of the team's game and the ability to score points even with not the highest quality game. Roma is only adapting to De Rossi's requirements and the match with Inter will be a real test for the new Roma head coach. At the moment, the teams are at different levels and even despite the factor of Roma's home stadium, the Nerazzurri look more preferable in the pre-match scenario. William Hill evaluates this Roma vs. Inter Milan prediction with odds of 1.91. 

Total Under 2.5

After De Rossi's arrival, Roma cheered up and started playing more attacking football, but rivals at the level of Cagliari and Salernitana are not Inter, which can punish any mistake. Inter pragmatically uses its advantage, having finished the last 3 matches with the same score 1-0. It is unlikely that Roma will run forward, giving Inter space at the back, so do not expect a match with a lot of goals scored. William Hill gives odds of 1.61 for this Roma vs. Inter Milan tip.

First to Score - Inter Milan

Given the tightest guest calendar, the physical form of the players should sink someday. It makes sense for Inter to resolve all issues in the match as early as possible in order to calmly think about the upcoming meetings in the Champions League playoffs. Statistics also show that Inter does not mind scoring first - the Nerazzurri have hit the opponents' goal first in the last 10 matches in a row. Roma vs. Inter Milan odds for this outcome are 1.61, as given by William Hill.
