Game Preview: Inter vs. AS Roma - Serie A - Saturday, October 5th, 2013

Italian Serie A matchup - Internazionale vs. AS Roma - Team LogosFourth place Inter will host first place AS Roma in the seventh round of Serie A, at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milan on Saturday, October 5th, 2013. The kick-off is at 8:45pm local time.

Inter and AS Roma had a forgettable 2012/13 season in the Italian Serie A. Inter finished in ninth place and Roma finished in sixth. Both teams missed out on playing in Europe this year and the domestic league is all they have to compete for. They have started off well.

AS Roma are on fire, having won six out of six matches so far, while scoring 17 goals and conceding only 1. Most recently, AS Roma beat Bologna with the score of 5-0. Gervinho, Adem Ljajic and Alessandro Florezi have all scored 3 goals each so far this season.

Inter are also undefeated in Serie A with four wins and two draws. They have so far scored 16 goals and conceded 3. It should be mentioned that Inter have beaten in-form Fiorentina 2-1 and they drew with last year's champions Juventus 1-1 at home. In their last league game, against Cagliari, the score was 1-1. Rodrigo Palacio is the leading scorer for Inter so far this season with 3 goals.

Let's take a look at the odds:

Inter: 5/4
Draw: 5/2
Roma: 2/1

Inter are the favourites to win at home on Saturday. A 100 € bet on Inter could generate 125 € in profit, while the same bet on AS Roma could return 200 € in profit.

Diego Milito, who is back from injury for Inter, is the favourite to score at 6/5 (bet 100 € for a chance to profit 120 €). Francesco Totti is the favourite to score for AS Roma at 7/4 (bet 100 € for a chance to profit 175 €).

This should be a good match!
