Having just gained promotion from the Serie B, Verona quickly adapted to the weekly hassles of top-flight football, establishing themselves as top-half candidates last season. Playing so impressively, they finished ninth on the standings.

Meanwhile, AS Roma endured a pretty mediocre campaign last season, by their standards. Ordinarily a top-four side, La Lupa failed in their Champions League qualification hunt. Surely, they will be targeting a return to the top-four mix this season.

Verona vs AS Roma Team News

Who would have envisaged Verona finishing in the top-half of the log prior to the start of the previous season? Not me! As a newly-promoted side, the Mastiffs were normally tagged relegation candidates, given they were competing in unfamiliar territory.

However, Verona left everyone at a loss for words with the results they were squeezing out. Even as they were earning points, the Mastiffs made sure those were bagged in comfortable fashion. Their style-of-play was so eye-catching.

Ivan Juric continued to receive praise for the amazing work he put into the club as they distanced themselves from any relegation-related talk. Indeed, the Croatian gaffer is a magnificent man-manager who muddle through, to get the best out of his players.

As Verona grabbed the headlines last season, they had a respectable league finish to show for it. With a staggering 49 points from 38 games, I Gialloblu comfortably clinched ninth spot on the log. Now, a new season is on the cards, and this club will be wary of the sophomore season blues.

We often see teams perform exploits in their first season in the top-division, only to return to the bottom end of the log in subsequent campaigns. Juric will be hoping his side manages to escape this trend to prove they are no one-season wonders.

Meanwhile, Roma were in tip-top form last season but narrowly missed out on Champions League qualification. Fonseca wouldn’t have been too hard on his players as they were truly outstanding all through.

Their inability to make the top-four cut was more as a result of the relative shocking brilliance of their rivals, who rose the bar lots higher last term. It goes without saying that La Lupa’s main aim this time around, would be returning to the elite top-four mix.

Unfortunately, Roma had to deal with a couple of high-profile departures this summer – Chris Smalling, Aleksandar Kolarov and Alessandro Florenzi moving to other clubs. Now, the club’s defensive line has been disrupted and Fonseca will be looking to find an alternative formula at the back.

Also, there are doubts over the future of Edin Dzeko, who continues to be linked with a move to Juventus. It remains to be seen whether the Bosnian will be available for selection this weekend.

Verona vs Roma Predictions

It is easy to say Verona were lucky to have enjoyed the season they had last term, and are likely to take their rightful place at the root of the log this time around. However, we have reason to believe the Mastiffs will flourish once again.

Roma are currently unsettled with a flurry of departures, and the uncertain future of Dzeko. As such, they are surely not going to be at their utmost best. A double chance backing the hosts for victory seems the safest punt.
