Roma look to continue their pursuit of leaders Juventus when they host Inter Milan on Sunday night. Roma have put together some strong performances in the last three winning well against Torino, coming from behind to beat Atalanta and getting a draw in Russia against CSKA where they really should have won only to concede a late late equaliser. Roma are still led by Francesco Totti up front with Ljajic and Gervinho flanking the former Italian striker. Given his age though its unlikely Totti starts on Sunday and will probably drop to the bench. Roma are not as effective without their talisman but with Pjanic, Strootman and De Rossi they still have plenty of quality individuals who can win games for them.
Inter Milan came from behind midweek to win in the Europa League and again came from behind last weekend against Ac Milan. This is a team that has struggled this season and Roberto Mancini was brought in as manager to try to save a lost season. With young Argentine Icardi the main goalscoring threat , Mancini will look to Palacio to use his experience and will want more goals from the man who should be Inter's main striker. A win tomorrow could lift Inter to seventh in the table and Mancini will be hopin that they can start to get these wins sooner rather than later.
With the way both teams are playing its very very difficult to see anything other than Roma winning this one. I am going to take the Romans to get the win and will also have a small bet on Roma -1 as I think there is a gulf in class between these two. I do know that Inter will raise their game for a game like this but i still think they are lacking defensively and will struggle to deal with Roma's talented midfield.
