Stadium: SDCCU Stadium
Roma shaded a thrilling encounter with Tottenham in last year’s International Champions Cup and get the nod to come out on top again in San Diego.
Spurs fought back from 2-0 down with a couple of late goals 12 months ago, only for the Giallorossi to snatch a dramatic victory in stoppage time.
The Italians have taken a strong squad to America and appeal at 13/10 to prevail as our first Roma vs Tottenham prediction.
A Look At Roma’s Betting Odds
Roma enjoyed another solid season in Serie A when finishing third behind Juventus, as well as reaching the Champions League semi-finals.
A 5-2 loss to Liverpool at Anfield ruined their hopes of European glory, although Eusebia De Francesco’s side almost pulled off a remarkable recovery when winning the second leg 4-2.
That followed a famous comeback when they overturned a 4-1 deficit against Barcelona by prevailing 3-0 at Stadio Olimpico.
Star defenders Kostas Manolas and Alessandro Florenzi have travelled to the USA, along with highly-rated midfielders Kevin Strootman, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Bryan Cristante.
Edin Dzeko, Stephan El Shaarawy, Cengiz Under and Diego Perotti are still there up front, while new recruits Justin Kluivert, Javier Pastore and Patrik Schick add more attacking options.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Spurs will have to rely on a number of fringe squad members and younger players after leaving out nine individuals who featured in the World Cup semi-finals.
Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Kieran Trippier, Danny Rose, Hugo Lloris, Jan Vertonghen, Mousa Dembele and Toby Alderweireld are all given a welcome break.
Christian Eriksen, Davinson Sanchez and Son Heung-Min have travelled, but Harry Winks misses out due to an ankle injury.
“It’s a massive opportunity for our younger players to show their quality and for players to show they are in condition to fight for a place in the first team,” declared Mauricio Pochettino.
However, this will be a tough test and we’re on their Italian opponents to win 3-1 at 16/1 to finish off our Roma vs Tottenham betting tips.

TOTTENHAM 5-4 Leicester – Harry Kane (2), Erik Lamela (2), Christian Fuchs
