Roma vs Juventus predictions for Sunday’s International Champions Cup clash in Massachusetts. Two Serie A giants meet in the United States on Sunday as Roma and Juventus face off at the Gillette Stadium. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.
Roma came out on top in a thrilling International Champions Cup clash on Wednesday, as they beat Spurs 3-2. They led for the majority of the game thanks to an early penalty from Diego Perrotti, and they looked to have sealed the victory when they went 2-0 up with 20 minutes to go. Two goals in the final three minutes brought the scores level again though, but just a minute later Tumminello bagged a last gasp winner.
This was a stark contrast to Roma’s rather drab 1-1 draw with PSG the week before, which they went on to lose on penalties. Overall their pre-season campaign has gone well this year though, and they still have a game against Sevilla to look forward to after this clash with their Serie A rivals.
Juventus started their summer friendlies by losing 2-1 against Barcelona, with that being the first time they had been in action since their crushing 4-1 defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League Final.
The Serie A champions did bounce back as they beat PSG 3-2 on Thursday though, with goals coming from Gonzalo Higuain and Claudio Marchisio. The fact they have conceded four goals in two matches won’t particularly please them though.
We could see another new face line up for the Turin outfit on Sunday too, as Federico Bernardeschi jets in from Italy following his big money move. He could join fellow new boy Rodrigo Bentacur in the starting lineup.
Whilst Juventus have strengthened their squad, Roma’s is looking a bit weaker. They have sold Mohamed Salah and Antonio Rudiger and are yet to sign anybody of their quality. Lorenzo Pellegrini and Bruno Peres are useful additions, but they could be lacking the star quality of Salah in the coming season.
The trend for both teams this summer has been high scoring games. Neither have managed a clean sheet in the International Champions Cup, and with each of Juventus’ last seven friendly games and six of Roma’s 11 friendlies seeing both teams find the net backing Both Teams to Score at 4/7 looks a good shout. We’re going for that alongside a 2-1 win for Juventus at 8/1.
100% of Juventus’ last seven friendlies have seen both teams score, as have 55% of Roma’s last 11 non competitive games.
