Our football match prediction:
Tottenham Hotspur were producing splendid performances in the 2016/2017 Premier League season, but they eventually failed to win the domestic title. The Spurs, though, will represent England in the Champions League this term and, as a result, the club chiefs decided to keep hold of key players in the summer transfer window. Harry Kane is likely to lead the line for Tottenham in Wednesday’s football match against Roma and we predict that he is going to pose a big threat for the opposition back-line. Roma, on the other hand, suffered a loss to PSG on penalties in their International Champions Cup opener and it has to be noted that coach Eusebio Di Francesco made nine substitutions during the game. Tottenham Hotspur and Roma seem to be evenly matched at the moment and we predict that fans will see a close encounter at Red Bull Arena on Wednesday.
Highlighted Player (Juan Iturbe):
Juan Iturbe is one of the rising stars of Paraguay football and is often dubbed the “new Lionel Messi”. The 22-year-old versatile professional plays as a winger as well as a forward. He currently plays for English club Bournemouth on loan from Italian club AS Roma. From a young age, Iturbe was earmarked for greater things and made his senior debut at the age of 16. In 2011 he joined Porto after signing his first professional contract but couldn’t settle in the first-team squad. Iturbe joined River Plate on a six-month loan and then made his move to Italy with Verona. Within weeks after joining Verona, Roma announced the signing of Iturbe. He continued to impress and showed flashes of brilliance but lacked consistency. Iturbe had a chance to represent Argentina and Paraguay and fluctuated his decision before finally deciding to stick with Paraguay. He made his debut with the Paraguayan national team in March 2016.
Highlighted Team (AS Roma):
AS Roma are a professional football club based in Rome. Roma were founded by a merger in 1927 and they play in the Italian Serie A. Roma’s fiercest rivals are Lazio and it has to be noted that both capital clubs play their home games at Stadio Olimpico. The two local rivals face each other in the Derby della Capitale, which is considered one of the most exciting derbies in the world of football. The Giallorossi (The Yellow and Reds) have won three Serie A titles (1941/1942, 1982/1983, 2000/2001), while winning nine Coppa Italia trophies. The colour of Roma’s shirts is imperial purple with a golden yellow trim. A number of top-class footballers were part of Roma in the past, but Francesco Totti is undisputedly the club’s biggest legend. “The Prince of Rome” made his 601 appearances for Roma on 14 May, 2016 when the Giallorossi recorded a 3-1 win over Milan at Stadio San Siro.
