AS Roma vs. Livorno [Recap, January 18th]

This Saturday we placed a bet on AS Roma to score an odd number of goals in the match against Livorno, and the bet was won with odds of 2.85 from betfair. The hosts kept their distance from the third place Napoli with 4 points, and keep the pressure on the leaders Juventus Torino.

Livorno is at the bottom of the table with just one point from their last nine matches and relegation never looked closer like it is now. Roma was with their thought on the Coppa Italia clash with Juventus from the next week, that’s why Rudi Garcia was open to rotate his squad to keep his options open for the big match.

Francesco Totti didn’t play in the starting eleven but came in as a substitute, but Roma welcomed back the suspended Daniele de Rossi and Ljajic. Livorno had their full squad at their disposal; the only player missing from the roster was Andrea Coda who was injured. Roma opened the score on the 6th minute, and seemed adamant to keep a clean sheet.

The second goal came 10 minutes before the end of the first half when Strootman fired a powerful shot from outside Livorno’s box. It was a former Roma player that posed the first real threat for De Sanctis’ goal line, and he couldn’t have sopped it, so Roma had luck as it flew past him.

In the second half Roma took the stage front and centre as they took over both the ball possession and the chances to score. After it was already 3-0 in the 79th minute, Francesco Totti was denied the fourth goal when his shot bounced off on Francesco Bardi’s leg.

Result: +12,95 units, bet won
