Additional intrigue to the forthcoming visit of Inter Milan on Stadio Olimpico is brought in by the fact of longstanding work of new Nerazzurri coach Luciano Spalletti.
Inter Milan (the head coach Luciano Spalletti)
In the previous first round of new season significantly renewed squad of Inter has destroyed Fiorentina (3:0) on San Siro. The author of a double in the squad of Inter was the Argentinean center forward Mauro Icardi. One more goal was scored by the Croatian winger Ivan Perišić.
The highest opinion deserves the game of a former playmaker from Fiorentina Borja Valero. He is considered to be the star-fresher of the hosts.
Roma (the head coach Eusebio Di Francesco)
Roma is preparing warm greetings to its former coach. The new director of Roma Francesco Totti has declared already about the necessity of slashing victory over Inter.
Let us remind, that three weeks ago the legendary captain of Roma has finished his distinguished career largely due to cool relations with Luciano Spalletti. But during the first period of Luciano Spalletti’s reigning on Stadio Olimpico (2005-2009) that is before Zenit Saint Petersburg, Totti was the right-hand man and irreplaceable assistant of his boss.
The history of battle of two super clubs has 177 matches (+52=49-76). And here are the results of 5 last meetings of the red and yellows and black and blues in Rome:
20.01.2013. Roma – Inter – 1:1 (Totti – Palacio);
01.03.2014. Roma – Inter – 0:0;
30.11.2014. Roma – Inter – 4:2 (Gervinho, Holebas, Pjanić 2 – Ranocchia, Osvaldo);
19.03.2016. Roma – Inter –1:1 (Nainggolan – Perišić);
02.10.2016. Roma – Inter – 2:1 (Džeko, Icardi (own goal) – Banega);
Last defeat of Roma to Inter on home arena happened on the 19th of October 2008 (0:4). Since then, Roma became to Nerazzurri really hard nut to crack. The black and blues can’t crack it for 9 years already. What team will be stronger this time?
Roma – 2.30, draw – 3.60, Inter – 2.90;
