Former Roma boss Luciano Spalletti will be hoping to come back to haunt his former club when his Inter side visit the Stadio Olimpico in Saturday’s Serie A clash.
Having overseen a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Fiorentina in his first match in charge, the new Nerazzurri boss is priced at 11/5 (3.20) with MarathonBet to mastermind a first victory at this ground since 2008.
Eusebio Di Francesco also enjoyed a winning debut after a 1-0 victory away to Atalanta in the opener, and can be backed at 131/100 (2.31) to make it six points from six in this one.
Just one of the last six encounters between the sides has resulted in a draw, but there are odds of 27/10 (3.70) available on them cancelling each other out in this one.
As well as the three points, both managers will have been pleased to see their sides record clean sheets in their respective first matches in charge.
However, repeating that task will be a lot more difficult in this encounter, with both sides having found the net in five of the previous six meetings.
The Giallorossi will be particularly confident of getting on the scoresheet considering they scored 50 goals in 19 home league games last season - the best record of any side in Serie A.
Nevertheless, the fact they have also conceded seven goals and failed to keep a clean sheet in the last four league fixtures in front of their own fans should offer plenty of encouragement to the guests.
After finishing the season with 15 goals in the final six away games, Spalletti’s team are in good shape to grab their own share of the headlines in the capital.
All in all, odds of 87/100 (1.87) seem like solid value on at least three goals being scored and both teams finding the net for the fifth game in seven between Roma and Inter.
