THE Stadio Olimpico hosts a massive match on Sunday. We got Marco Di Cosmo to analyse the game for us.
Roma v Inter | Sunday 19:45 | BT Sport 1
Since Rudi Garcia arrived at Roma, he’s managed 25 games at the Stadio Olimpico. From those 25 matches, he’s had 21 wins, three draws, and just one defeat (against Juventus). This season Roma have yet to concede a single goal on home turf, winning six games out of six, with at least a two goal winning margin in each game.
On Sunday, Inter Milan arrive at the Olimpico and I am not expecting things to change. The Neroazzurri had a wearing match against Dnipro on Thursday in the Europa League, as they had to play half of the game with 10 men. They managed to win though, but I think they’ll suffer with fatigue on Sunday as I can’t see many changes to the team.
The change of manger at the San Siro is interesting. Roberto Mancini brings more experience than his predecessor Walter Mazzarri, but this is a very much a work in progress. That was evident last week during the 1-1 draw in last week’s Milan derby.
I think Roma will have too much for them on Sunday, with the hosts having Maicon back from injury, and a range of attacking options. With Mattia Destro, Juan Iturbe and Miralem Pijanic rested against CSKA Moscow midweek they have plenty of fresh options in the midfield and attacking third. I am strongly convinced Roma will win this.
