David Goffin vs Alexander Zverev – Match Predictions

The second round of the Italian Open brings us a duel between two former top 10 players.

David Goffin +4.5

David Goffin has made a huge step back in the last couple of seasons but we all know that he is capable of playing much better. He enjoys playing on clay courts and has a winning record against Zverev. Goffin has been very active this season which is a good sign and he will be able to be competitive against Zverev and cover the +4.5 games spread.

Total 3 sets

The odds are favoring Alexander Zverev by far but the German will not have an easy task at all. Goffin’s confidence is not on the appropriate level so he has many ups and downs. Both players are eyeing this season to return among the top 10 so this will be a huge battle with both players winning a set.
