Real Madrid - Roma Betting Preview: Back a goal-fest in Texas

Our Spanish expert believes that the two European big-hitters will serve up a high-scoring encounter with at least three goals and neither team keeping a clean sheet
Real Madrid continue their tour of the United States by facing Roma in Dallas in the second match of their International Champions Cup campaign.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men drew their first game of the tournament 1-1 against Inter on Saturday before losing on penalties, while Roma went down 3-2 against Manchester United in their opener.

Bet365 make the European champions clear favourites at 61/100 (1.61) while Roma are offered at 4/1 (5.00) and the draw can be backed at 3/1 (4.00).

Despite it being a friendly played in the potentially sapping conditions of a Texan summer this should be competitive game between two attacking sides.

Roma showed plenty of ability going forward against United while Madrid are a constant attacking threat especially given the tremendous shape that Gareth Bale appears to be in.

Over 2.5 goals is priced at 8/15 (1.57) but much more tempting are the odds of 19/20 (1.95) for over 2.5 goals and both teams to score.

If, as expected, this game sees goals, then the selection should allow punters to practically double their investment.
