Competition: Serie A

Market: Roma win

Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport

Looking to extend on what has been a stunning start to the 2021/22 campaign, a high-flying Roma will make the trip to the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi on Sunday evening.

Starting with the hosts, while Verona might have managed to land themselves an eye-catching top-half finish last season, the Gialloblu have largely failed to keep up that momentum. Eventually opening the 2021/22 Serie A campaign last month with an action-packed 3-2 defeat against Sassuolo at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi, Igor Tudor’s side have now lost each of their first three top-flight contests. Marking their return from September’s international break with a toothless display as they were hit with a deserved 1-0 loss at the hands of Bologna on the road last weekend, Verona will know they face another stern test on Sunday. One of just two Serie A sides who are yet to get a single point on the board, it should also be noted that they were hit with a 3-1 drumming when they last faced off against this weekend’s guests.

As for the visitors, while Verona might find themselves in the midst of a real struggle, the same cannot be said for a high-flying Roma. Appointing Jose Mourinho over the summer and enjoying an immediate boost, the former Manchester United boss should find the mood in his camp at a real high. Eventually managing to land what was a last-gasp 2-1 victory against Sassuolo last weekend, the Giallorossi also laid down a European marker on Thursday. Breezing past CSKA Sofia on home soil and landing a thumping 5-1 win, Roma have won all six of their competitive contests since opening the 2021/22 campaign. Gaining a reputation for their clinical displays in the final third and landing themselves that 3-1 victory the last time they faced off against Verona, we’re backing a similar result at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi on Sunday evening.
