Tuollaisen jutun lainasin BA:n foorumilta, kiitos siitä kirjoittajalle. Itse otin ns. harrastevetona Betssonilta Chelseaa
CHELSEA LONDON - AS ROMA
Roma will miss Chivu (defender) for sure as he is having surgery and will be out for at least 5-6 weeks. Also Damiano Tomassi (midfielder) is ruled out since he got injured in a clash with Grazer AK and will be injured for couple of months. Ivan Pelizzolli (goalkeeper) is going to Athens with Italy national team so he is out too. Same goes with very talented midfielder De Rossi and defender Matteo Ferrari bought from Parma. Roma lost some important players during midseason. Walter Samuel (important defender), Lima (midfielder), Emerson (important midfielder) and Jonathan Zebina (defender) left the team. Striker John Carew came back to Valencia from loan. Christiano Lupatelli choose to go to Fiorentina on free transfer rule. Mancini (right wing back) will probably miss the game as he was on Copa America until last sunday.
They were supposed to buy a lot of interesting players but there are some legal problems. Case of Mexes is still not sure since Auxerre claims players is not free, but he is playing with Roma. Gilardino, Luis Fabiano and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are still on Roma's target but of course they arent training with Giallorossi yet. So far only Ferrari and Matteo Brighi (from Juve in exchange for Emerson) are in. Also Sartor, Cufre and Guigou are coming back from loan.
Now Roma has only 18 players that aren't juniors. Only one goalkeeper (Zotti), who played only couple of games in Serie A, 6 defenders (Candela, Cufre, Dellas, Sartor, Mexes and Panucci), 6 midfielders (Dacourt, D'Agostino, Galasso, Wahab, Mancini, Ajide) and 5 forwards (Totti, Delvecchio, Montella, Coriva and Cerci).
So far Roma played three friendly games. They lost with Glasgow Rangers after horrible performance 4:1 and won 1:0 with GAK and 2:0 with Stoke City.
Chelsea will have Petr Cech on goal. Also Didier Drogba (striker) and Damien Duff (winger) will play their first game in new season, however Duff will play only couple of minutes. Ricardo Carvalho joined team in Pittsburg today so it's doubtful he'll play.
Against Celtic Chelsea played with Carlo Cudicini - Glen Johnson, Robert Huth, John Terry (c), Wayne Bridge - Scott Parker, Alexeï Smertin, Joe Cole, Gérémi - Eidur Gudjohnsen, Adrian Mutu. Today Huth will not play for 100% and we'll probably see Paulo Ferreira.
So far Chelsea won 4:2 with Celtic after good performance and drawn 1:1 with Oxford after horrible display
All in all I rate Chelsea as better team at the very moment and they should win with snake-bitten Roma easily. Small stakes however since it's only friendly game.
Take Chelsea to win @1.825 in Pointbet with 5/10
