The International Champions Cup’s mission is to promote football and create spectacles. It is why the matches are divided, and one group is playing in Asia the second one in North America.
Paris Saint-Germain and as Roma will open the group stages, playing in America. Kick off is on Thursday morning and will be played at Comerica Park in Detroit.
It will be an excellent match because both sides are preferring an attack-minded football and there is no doubt that we will see a lot of goals.
Also, they are here to provide a bit of fun and show to the American spectators. Despite the fact that the game will be played during the night in the Central European Time, for all of you football fans this will be the opportunity for betting which cannot pass.
AS Roma preview
The club from the Italian capital headed for America with the strongest possible squad. The only player who didn’t went to the USA is Rick Carsdorp, the right-back who came from Feyenoord. There were many changes in the roster, especially because Roma suffered two big departures. Mohamed Salah and Antonio Rudiger both went for England. Salah to Liverpool and the centre-back to Chelsea.
As always I Lupi, brought many young players and they are a team with a lot of flair. We are about to see how that works when they meet robust and expensive European squads like PSG is. So far this season, AS Roma played only one friendly match against FC Slovacko in which they won with the minimal result, 1-0.
Paris Saint-Germain Preview
The most expensive French team ended the last season with a bitter taste in their mouth. PSG didn’t reach anything worth mentioning in Europe, and on the other hand, they didn’t win the title in France. During this transfer window, the Saints have been quiet. The only notable name which has landed at Parc de Princes is Dani Alves. But we are sure that the management of the Parisians is preparing something spectacular. On the departure side, we didn’t saw anything worth mentioning. Before the trip to America, Serge Aurier and Hatem Ben Arfa were hinted that they are free to leave the club. That means that two players are not going to play in this competition. Also, Julian Draxler still didn’t join the team after he had played at the Confederations Cup in Russia. Regardless, PSG still has one of the best teams in Europe. And they are entering tonight’s match as the favorites. They didn’t participate in any friendly pre-season match, and this will be the first one for them.
Roma vs PSG Head to Head
So far in history, these two sides never met in the official matches. The only encountered happened in 2010 in club friendly game. The event ended without winners, and the final result was 1-1.
Roma vs PSG Prediction
As we mentioned, the Parisians are closer to victory in this game. But we have to take into consideration that it is their first match and that they are still fitting all the pieces together. It would be wise to avoid the final outcome and his dad play on goals.
Both teams to score is our first and most certain bet. Both teams to score and over 2.5 is also worth realistic.
As always we have one risky proposition, and that is to play over 1.5 goals in first half time.
