AS Rom vs Real Madrid | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Though they are safe in the Champions League and enter this contest topping Group G, both sides are in a difficult position because of their performances in the domestic leagues. Real is a slight favourite here, but that doesn’t have to mean anything when Roma plays at home.
The hosts lost in the last game of the Serie A against Udinese away from home, with a minimal result, 1:0. Meanwhile, Real Madrid got trashed by Eibar, suffering another devastating loss in this season. It was 3:0 for the underdog, who celebrated one of their brightest wins in the whole history.
Il Lupi had an excellent period before the international break. They recorded five consecutive games in which they haven’t lost. But then came Udinese who managed to use mistakes made by Roma’s players and to put down one significant victory. For Di Francesco’s boys, this clash showed many weaknesses, which they have to erase until Tuesday. Real is a team who will use them, despite his current condition. Now, when talking about the efficiency of the Italians, we need to say that prior to this loss, they had four in a row with both teams to score. They have a potent attack, but on the other side of the field, the back line is very unstable.
Most of the experts thought that all the bad times are left behind this team. Well, that is not true. The Madridians had four wins in four games, keeping their net intact on three occasions during that streak. Meanwhile, Benzema and the boys scored 15 goals in those four triumphs. And then, Eibar happened. Real lost 3:0, erasing everything good they did in the past month. Santiago Solari will now have to recover his troops mentally, and we are going to see how the Argentinian handles those situations. One thing is, however, constant. And that is the efficiency when Los Blancos play. Six of their latest seven games ended with over 2.5 goals, with four of them seeing over 3.5.
Latest Team News
Javier Pastore is doubtful for the hosts, Daniele De Rossi also. Konstantinos Manolas is definitely ruled out for this clash because of his sprained ankle. Among the Madridians, Keylor Navas and Mariano Diaz are listed questionable, while Casemiro still didn’t recover from his ankle injury. According to some predictions, the Brazilian will return somewhere during mid-December.
These two clubs met regularly in the last 18 years. In 14 games overall, Real posted 8 wins, Roma 4, and we saw two draws. However, the Madridians haven’t lost since 2014, recording four wins in the last four games. They always scored at least two goals during that span.
Odds and Predictions
Real is the favorite here and the odds on their win are at 2.05. Roma’s victory is 3.20, and a draw is 3.75.
AS Rom vs Real Madrid | Top Betting Tip: Real Madrid (1-3)
It’s going to be very efficient at Olimpico. Have no doubts about that. Simply, both sides like to play open and offensive football. Roma is always attacking at home, while Real has one of the best counter-attacks in the world, despite having many issues at the moment. They will not hesitate to show their best possible game if the hosts give them an opportunity to do so. So, the first suggestion is over 2.5 goals. Odds for that one are not high, but the risk is low. Now, if you look for a good profit, regardless of the risk, we recommend over 1.5 goals in the first halftime. As for the winner of this clash, our choice is Real, because they have better individuals than the Italians, who are still young and inexperienced, for big games. Having in mind that both sides attack, and that they have certain problems when defending, our final prediction will be Roma – Real Madird 1:3.
