Roma plays host to Verona in Serie A soccer action from the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday afternoon.

Roma comes into this match in 5th place on 54 points after picking up back-to-back wins after a 3-0 win over Brescia last time out. In the win over Brescia, the first half saw no scoring and only a single booking that ended up going Brescia’s way in the 9th minute. Federico Fazio gave Roma the lead in the 48th minute and Nikola Kalinic would double Roma’s lead in the 62nd minute. Nicolo Zaniolopushed Roma’s lead to 3-0 and that’s all the Romans would need as Brescia just wouldn’t get on the board by the full time whistle. Edin Dzeko leads Roma in scoring with 14 goals along with 5 assists while Henrik Mkhitaryan has 8 goals with 4 assists and Lorenzo Pellegrini has a team-high 9 assists this season. Pau Lopez is Roma’s top goalkeeper, conceding 1.33 goals per 90 minutes with 5 clean sheets in 27 league appearances this season.

Verona on the other hand, enter this match in 9th place on 44 points with a record of 11 wins, 11 draws and 10 loses following a 1-1 draw with Fiorentina last time out. In the tie with Fiorentina, Davide Faraoni gave Verona the lead in the 18th minute and the lead would hold for Verona into the half and for a large portion of the second half before Fiorentina sucked out a point in the sixth minute of second half stoppage time, leaving Verona with just a single point, stunned that they didn’t pick up the result. Samuel Di Carmine leads Verona in scoring with 6 goals while Matteo Pessina is right behind with 5 goals and Darko Lazovic has a team-high 6 assists this season. Marco Silvestri is Verona’s top goalkeeper, conceding 1.03 goals per 90 minutes with 9 clean sheets in 32 league appearances this season.

Verona had to grind out a couple of draws, and a win here would go a long way towards making a last-ditch run at that second Europa League spot down the stretch. However, Verona just doesn’t have a good history against Roma, as they haven’t won at Roma since the 90s and Roma is just picking up steam down the stretch to strengthen their hold on that 5th spot and Europa League for next year themselves. I’ll side with Roma to get the job on the moneyline here.
