as roma betting tips and odds

AS Roma will be buoyed by the acquisition of a new manager, Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese manager, nicknamed “The Special One” has had an illustrious career in management and is known for his masterful tactical brain. Signatures of Tammy Abraham and Shomurodov in their front line could be seen as a potent attacking threat for Roma. Mourinho is known for his defensive set up and the addition of solid center-back Marash Kumbulla will bolster his defensive options. Roma are a side used to competing on the European stage and Mourinho will be expected to return Roma to Champions League positions if not competing for the League title this season. If Tammy Abraham has his shooting boots this season he could play a pivotal role for the club. The young striker is capable of bagging 20+ goals a season and if he enjoys life in Italy, they have a talisman in the tall finisher.

AS Roma: Tactics & Principles

With a new manager, it is hard to make a judgement on a side’s tactics but, historically Mourinho’s sides have favoured a defensive priority with fluid counter-attacking play. Tammy Abraham was a surprise release by Chelsea where he played point in the attacking line very well scoring a number of goals in the EPL. Tammy is a tall striker, quick and agile with great footwork and an eye for goal. He will be expected to perform given his approximate 40 million euro transfer fee. Ex-Manchester United player Chris Smalling will know Mourinho from his time at United and has adjusted to life in Italy pretty well, his ability as a centre-back will continue to sure up the defence which Mourinho will bank on. Expect solid defensive play and a counter-attacking side, more than likely, in a 3-5-2 formation.
