Having lost just one of their last eight home matches against this opposition, they are available at 9/5 (2.80) with bet365 to return to form with an eye-catching victory at the Stadio Olimpico.
However, the Nerazzurri have won eight of their last nine matches in the league, and are slight 6/4 (2.50) favourites to come out on top here.
Just one of the guests’ 13 league games so far have resulted in a draw, but you can get odds of 12/5 (3.40) on them settling for a single point in this one.
Ante Coric and Stephan El Shaarawy are doubtful after suffering injuries against Real Madrid in midweek, joining Edin Dzeko, Lorenzo Pellegrini, Javier Pastore, Diego Perotti and Daniele De Rossi on an extensive list of absentees.
Radja Nainggolan is a doubt after coming off injured in Wednesday’s defeat to Tottenham, although Sime Vrsaljko may be in contention following his return to full training.
Those fans impatient to see the Giallorossi put their poor form behind them are unlikely to be cheering too soon given their side have scored seven of their last 10 goals after the break.
Indeed, Luciano Spalletti’s side are a particularly tough nut to crack in the first half, conceding in the opening 45 minutes just four times in 18 fixtures this campaign.
All in all, odds of 20/21 (1.95) look generous on the majority of the goalmouth action unfolding after the break for Roma’s fifth and Inter’s sixth game in a row, as well as the seventh encounter in nine between the sides.
