Liverpool and Roma meet at Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox and Reds owner John W Henry, on Wednesday evening with both sides kicking off their American tour. The Reds will play the likes of AC Milan and Olympiakos while in America, with the Giallorossi taking on Manchester United, Real Madrid and Inter.
Liverpool come into this match after securing their first victory of the summer against Preston last time out. Goals from Suso and Kristoffer Peterson saw the Reds come from behind to beat the League One side. This result followed up a 2-1 defeat to Brondby in their opening friendly. William Hill price them at 13/10 (2.30) to win.
Roma had a fantastic year in Serie A last season, finishing second behind Juventus. Rudi Garcia's men will play Champions League football this season and have already been busy bolstering their squad, signing former Chelsea left back Ashley Cole.
The former England man should play a part here as he comes to face to face with a side against whom he has huge experience of playing. William Hill price them at 7/4 (2.75) to win, with the same firm pricing the draw at 23/10 (3.30).
Roma have a history of being involved in high-scoring matches during their pre-seasons in past years. The over 2.5 bet would have paid out in their last six friendlies. As well as paying out in Liverpool’s last two matches and friendlies, the over 2.5 goals bet landed when the two sides met in a friendly in 2012. The price of 8/11 (1.73) is certainly worth backing in this fixture.
