AS Roma hosts Inter in round 17 of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Sunday, January 10th at Stadio Olimpico (Rome)
Paulo Fonseca's charges have already risen to third place in the standings. But at the start of the season, the Portuguese coach was on the verge of being fired, and the club showed terrible results (position in the middle of the Serie A standings). Now Roma is a well-organized team with a strong midfield. The Wolves gained many victories with a large lead. In parallel, the team performed well in the Europa League and won its group without any problems. The Wolves have enough highly qualified footballers with extensive experience of playing at the highest level (Mkhitaryan, Dzeko, Karsdorp, Smalling, Pellegrini, and others). However, there are practically no young talents in the team. Among the promising players of Roma, only Carlos Perez, Zaniolo, Villar, and Ibanez can be distinguished.

The Black-Blues compete with Milan for the top spot in the standings. Inter failed in the Champions League, finishing last in the group. Such a failure, together with a poor start in the championship, could have cost Conte work, but the contract with the mentor was not terminated. The bosses probably allowed him to try to win the champion’s title in Serie A. The Milan club has an excellent selection of players with a well-balanced game (none of the links drops out). Bastoni and De Vrij work reliably in defense, Brozovic and Barella are good in the midfield, and Hakimi shows creativity. Lukaku and Martinez shine in the attack (the Argentine gained amazing shape in the last matches).
The upcoming game promises to be tense and uncompromising. The capital club has a chance to reduce the gap to its direct competitor in the fight for prizes in Serie A. Inter looks like a more integral team in terms of the game organization. Roma is focused on the attack, where Mkhitaryan, Dzeko, and Veretout show their potential. The match will be wide-open, and we will probably see goals in both nets.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score - yes
