Our prediction for this match:
Barcelona and Roma take on each other at AT&T Stadium in what is expected to be a real football festival. Barca defeated Tottenham on penalties in the opening match of their International Champions Cup campaign, but it has to be noted that they were on the verge of beating Spurs in the regular time. Summer signing Arthur marked his debut with a goal and, no doubt, there is a bright future ahead of him. The Catalan giants are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Roma and we predict that they are going to find the net in Wednesday’s football game. The Giallorossi, on the other hand, suffered a heavy 4-1 loss to Tottenham in their opener and they certainly want to give fans some cheer. Seeing that Ernesto Valverde is likely to mix the squad against Roma, we predict the two teams are going to play out a draw in Arlington.

Barcelona is a Spanish football club based in Barcelona, Catalonia. Barca were founded in 1899 and they are regarded as one of the greatest clubs in world football.

The likes of Hristo Stoichkov, Romario, Rivaldo, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Johan Cruyff, Diego Maradona and Pep Guardiola are some of many players that played for Barca in the past, but, no doubt, Leo Messi has established himself as the club’s trademark.
