Bottom of the table Livorno are still looking for their first win of the season, and Blue Square make them a big 10/1 shot to get it on Sunday afternoon against Roma, however, even at that price it is difficult to make a case for Livorno, who, even at this early stage in the season, look certainties for relegation from Serie A.
Roma are a best-priced 2/5 (William Hill) and should be a cornerstone of many accumulators this weekend. That price will also appeal to big-hitters, but most punters will be looking to other markets for value on the game.
They will find it in a Roma win to nil, which is available at 5/4 (SkyBet), and looks to be one of the best bets of the weekend, especially considering that Livorno have only managed two goals in their eight league games this season.
Roma were unlucky to lose after going ahead early on against AC Milan, and are steadily improving under former Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri.
They are very reliant on striker Francesco Totti, who is missing through injury, but Daniele De Rossi (8/1, Bet365) is a goal threat from midfield, and strikers Mirko Vucinic (4/1, SkyBet) and Jeremy Menez (5/1, Bet365), who scored after just three minutes last weekend against Milan, are more than capable of scoring against a defence as poor as Livorno’s.
Livorno will most likely go to the Stadio Olimpico, and try to play for a draw (4/1, Coral), but they have only managed to win one point away from home, at fellow strugglers Siena. In that game the home side missed a penalty, and were lucky not to lose.
Roma are a much stronger side than Siena, and they should be able to win by two or more goals (21/20, Bet365), with correct scores of two-nil (11/2, SkyBet) or three-nil (17/2, SkyBet) likely results.
To win to nil – Roma (5/4, SkyBet)
Correct Score – Roma 2 Livorno 0 (11/2, SkyBet)
