The game between Tottenham and Roma will probably be one of the most interesting and attractive in the whole tournament.
Both teams like to play offensive and open football with a lot of goals and exciting plays. In the previous season, they were one of the highest efficient sides in their respective leagues.
Tottenham Hotspurs haven’t changed the roster significantly in this transfer window. On the other hand, AS Roma had a very interesting summer and they are still searching for possible signings. Two of the best players left, and the new coach was also appointed.
The English and the Italian team had one common opponent during this pre-season, the French side Paris Saint-Germain.
Although the event starts after midnight, we are sure that many of you are going to find the time to watch it.
In two games during this pre-season, the Hotspurs scored 8 goals allowing only 3. The previous match against Paris Saint-Germain was the perfect picture of Tottenham’s game. Flamboyant attack, high paced tempo and extreme pressure on the midfield. Tottenham Hotspurs now possess the experience of playing in the international scene. Therefore, this team will have better results against the clubs from England than in the previous season. Their biggest strength is the fact that anyone can score, and in the past two games, we saw seven different executors. Therefore, goals in the matches where they participate are inevitable.
AS Roma Preview
After Mohamed Salah and Antonio Rudiger left, Roma is still looking for decent replacements. But there is one other thing, and that is Eusebio di Francesco. The newly appointed manager will certainly make some modifications, and the players are still adjusting to it. Against the French side, it was obvious that the team from Italian capital is still searching for its game. It is expected for the latest signing from Manchester City Aleksandar Kolarov to start this game. The most recent rumours were suggesting that Riyad Mahrez is negotiating with Roma.
Head to head matches
The club from London and Rome never met in the competitive games. However, during 2008 they played an international friendly. The Hotspurs demolished Roma with 5-0.
Tottenham vs Roma Prediction
Tottingham is closer to win here. Simply they are stronger at the moment, especially since Roma is still building the team. The Hotspurs have kept most of the players from the previous season, and with some small additions, their chemistry on the pitch is already formed. Meanwhile, the club from Rome and the new coach are still experimenting during the games.
Also, we think that there is a huge possibility to see over 3.5 goals in this match.
If the game opens correctly, we could witness one of the best shows so far in this tournament.
