This weekend’s Serie A schedule involves some key fixtures and these Roma vs. Frosinone predictions focus on a local derby. Despite Roma vs. Lazio being the traditional capital city derby, this tie will have some spice to it.
Roma vs. Frosinone odds
1 – A draw – 18/5
2 – Roma under 2.5 total goals – 2.5
3 – Total goals scored under 2.5 – 13/15
4 – Both teams to score – 5/4
5 – A 1-1 draw – 15/2
Roma are waiting for a spark to bring their Serie A season to life after a mixed start to the league campaign for Jose Mourinho’s charges. Ahead of their home tie against Frosinone this weekend, Roma have won just one of their three home league games so far this season, and that came via a wild 7-0 victory over Empoli in the Italian capital.
The sense of the Empoli being impressive, but also being difficult to gauge much from, was underlined by an immediate draw away at Torino the following weekend. That sense of uncertainty will be causing frustration for Mourinho, but Roma look short on answers on how to shake themselves from the slump.
The fixture calendar this season has meant Frosinone have only played two away league matches and they picked up draws in both games.
With Mourinho under some pressure, and Frosinone happy to dig in and get a draw, the sense is that this could be another disappointing day for the home team.
With Roma struggling at home, aside from the Empoli thrashing, goals have also been an issue, with their other two home league games featuring just three goals scored overall.
Alongside that, Frosinone have scored just once away from home in Serie A action this season, with both games ending with under 2.5 goals scored and a rate of 0.5 goals conceded.
A tight draw would clearly do more for Frosinone, as it would extend their unbeaten away record and could edge the visitors up a place or two in the table. But more dropped points will be a major concern for Mourinho ahead of a UEFA Europa League home tie against Swiss side Servette.
