AS Roma vs Atl. Madrid Prediction & Betting tips
A striking match in this day of Tuesday is the one held by Roma and Atletico Madrid for the first date of the Champions League (group stage).
AS Roma :
In my opinion, there is no clear favorite on this occasion, as the two teams are even and can be neutralized by having different football styles. For this reason and considering that the citizens always go forward and generate situations of goal, we advise you to play a few euros to the bet “Rome plus 5.5 corners”. Remember that “colchoneros” know how to stand well as visitors thanks to their collective and defensive hierarchy.
It takes into account that Rome arrives rested to this duel after not playing this date when suspending its game like visitor before Sampdoría. The team needs to improve its definition, as it generates goal situations. However, miss them costs the matches as they did against Inter a long time ago (partial advantage that was lost in the last 25 ‘minutes of play).
On the other hand do not forget that the capital picture has 3 points in the Italian championship, after beating 0-1 to Atalanta and losing 1-3 against Inter as already mentioned above. The team has variants in attack like Perotti, Dzeko, Nainggolan and newcomer Defrel. Therefore, they are expected to handle the ball and generate corners as they did against the neroazurris (12 for).
Continuing with the analysis you should know that Atlético de Madrid comes from playing against Valencia its third consecutive exit in the Spanish first division (tie without goals in Mestalla). Previously he had equalized 2-2 against Girona and beat 1-5 to Las Palmas. It remains a compact set despite having lowered its defensive level slightly. You are expected to be able to stand well at this exit.
Finally, we tell you that the “mattresses” are usually lethal in attack, as they take advantage of the few chances they usually have against rivals in this hierarchy. The most likely thing is that it can yield corners when trying to withstand the “Loba” clash.
In front of this panorama I play for the bet “Roma plus 5.5 corners” due to the following reasons: First because Rome is an interesting team although in process of renovation after the departure of Spaletti, the retirement of Totti and the arrival of the coach Di Francesco. Therefore, its objective is that this instability does not affect them in their debut for this European contest. Second, Italians always handle the ball and advance their lines steadily. No longer is Salah, but Perotti, Dzeko and Nainggolan are still there to generate various goal situations. Therefore, we believe that they can specify between 6 to 8 corners and repeat what happened to Inter a while ago (12 in total). And third because Atletico Madrid is an orderly and tactical set between lines, being able to reject the goal balls that reach their goal.
