Third hosts fifth this weekend in the Serie A, as the Italian league picks up again following their two-week winter break.

Roma’s three-game without a win run has seen them slip out of the Champions League places and look set to battle it out with Lazio for fourth spot. As for Inter, they are now eight points behind second placed Juventus and their title hopes look to be hanging on by a slither.

They have not won a league game in any of their past five Serie A games and have scored just two goals in that run.

Both sides do not concede many goals, Roma have the second best defensive record and Inter are the third, conceding 15 and 14 goals respectively. Three of Inter’s games against the top five sides have ended 0-0, showing the philosophy they have in big games.

As for Roma, in four of their matches against the top 6 in the league, they have only won one of them but have still only lost three games so far this campaign.

Looking at the betting, it is a difficult one to call, the draw being the most favourable bet at 13/5 with BetStars. Goals have been scarce of late for both sides, under 2.5 goals has occurred in five of Roma’s last six away games and Inter struggling for goals in their current bad run. So under 2.5 goals at 121/100 is another way to go for this one.

Defences to come out on top here and the game to finish 0-0 at 13/1 with Unibet is certainly a bet to look at from the correct score market.
