MLS All-Stars - AS Roma Betting Preview: Expect goals in this All-Star exhibition

Our tipster backing plenty of goals as the Serie A outfit becomes the first Italian side to face the All-Stars, which over 3-5 goals a regular trend in their previous 18 outings
Sporting Park in Kansas City hosts the 2013 MLS All-Star Game on Monday evening, with Italian giants Roma in town.

Rudi Garcia’s men are the first Italian side to take on the All-Stars, following the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Everton in recent years.

Roma come into this match having played one pre-season friendly this summer. Francesco Totti & Co. fought past Greek side Aris 2-1 last Friday to kick off their preparations for the new Serie A season with a win.

Garcia has named a strong squad for the match against the All-Stars, with Totti, Daniele De Rossi and American Michael Bradley all included. BetVictor price the Italians at 4/5 (1.80) to come out on top.

The MLS All-Stars recorded a famous victory last season against Chelsea, who were Champions League holders at the time.

A late Eddie Johnson goal saw the All-Stars recover from 2-1 down to take the win. Before last years win though, the Americans had struggled against the likes of Manchester United and Everton. BetVictor price the All-Stars at 27/10 (3.70) to win in 90 minutes. The same firm price the draw at 13/5 (3.60).

A bet that stands out in this match is over 3.5 goals at even money (2.00). With both sides naming strong squads, the All-Stars side including the likes of Thierry Henry, Tom Cahill and Robbie Keane, goals won’t be hard to come by.

Had you backed this bet in all 18 MLS All-Star matches, the bet would have landed in 14 of them. Although this match is taken seriously, it is an exhibition and will provide a huge amount of entertainment for the fans.
