6th May – 21:00, Stadio Olimpico, Rome
Roma will take on Manchester United in the second-leg match of the Europa League semi-finals. The hosts need a miracle to advance to the finals, while the away side wants to finish its job in this tie properly.
Roma vs Manchester United Match Preview & Team News
The major news in Rome is Jose Mourinho’s arrival on the Giallorossi’s bench. However, that will be effective from the start of the next campaign, and until then, things have not been going very well for the home side. Paulo Fonseca’s side continued its poor streak last weekend with a 2:0 defeat against Genoa. Roma failed to win six times in a row in all competitions, managing to remain undefeated only twice during that period. Although Edin Dzeko and the lads have been doing a decent job in front of the oppositions’ net, their defense has been very leaky lately. The home side managed to keep the clean sheet only once in the last 12 games, and they really need to improve defending to keep theoretical chances of going further. A very tough task is ahead of Roma after a 6:2 defeat in Manchester, especially as several first-team players will be sidelined due to injuries.
It was a scorching weekend in Manchester as well since the derby match against Liverpool was canceled due to fans’ protests. Consequently, Manchester United players had some extra days to prepare better for this clash after a very physical first leg. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side is on a good track of finishing as runners-up in the Premier League, as they are four points ahead of Leicester City, having one game in hand. Bruno Fernandes and the lads have been clinical in front of the oppositions’ goal this season, being the second most efficient team in the English top flight. The Red Devils have been unbeatable on the road, and they hope to continue that streak. Manchester United has a huge advantage, but there is no room for complacency.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
The visitors have been in much better form lately, and they are favorites in the second-leg match as well. We believe Manchester United will meet the expectations and beat Roma for the fifth time in a row.
Goals Market Prediction
Both sides have been excellent in the front, while Roma has been involved in many high-scoring matches lately. We expect to see another efficient clash which should go over a 2.5 margin.
