Roma v Empoli Betting Tips: Spalleti’s men to flex their muscles at Stadio Olimpico

They might be eight points behind runaway league leaders Juventus, but Roma are still enjoying a good season in Serie A. Luciano Spalleti’s team have looked strong throughout the campaign and are unlikely to be fazed by this upcoming home fixture against an Empoli side whose away form really has been dire. When it comes to scoring goals in front of a home crowd, Roma are second to none and have been imperious in this sense over the course of the season. Empoli have been struggling on their travels, especially lately, and the hosts are fancied to fill their boots…

AS Roma v Lyon Betting Tips: Yet more goals fancied at Stadio Olimpico

When the draw was made for the last-16 of the Europa League, this clash was one of the more mouth-watering ones and the first leg certainly lived up to it as Lyon came out on top in a six-goal thriller. Roma were 2-1 up at half time in the first-leg and will really feel they should have closed the game out, however, they are now in a real fight and require two goals without reply if they hope to go through. The 4-2 loss had made it three losses on the bounce for Roma but they managed to kick-start again…

Lyon v AS Roma Betting Tips: Italian side to flex their muscles

These two teams have ambitions of competing in the Champions League on a regular basis as well as challenging bigger clubs in their domestic league for honours. However, such ambitions can be put on hold as the Europa League is their best chance of claiming silverware this season. Although Lyon are on a good run at the moment with no defeats in their last five in all competitions, winning four of them, they are well off the pace in the French league and are 15 points off Nice in 3rd place. Defence has certainly been the main problem for Bruno…

AS Roma v Villarreal Betting Tips: Lack of goals expected at Stadio Olimpico

This tie is all but over after Italian side AS Roma pulled off an incredible 4-0 victory in their away tie at Villarreal, meaning that the Spaniards have to score at least four without reply in Rome on Thursday to have any chance of qualifying. Roma are currently on a fantastic run with 10 wins in their last 11 matches in all competitions. They do sit seven points off top spot in Serie A but it has still been a fantastic season so far. Luciano Spalletti’s side are excellent in both boxes, scoring 54 goals in the league this season…

Astra Giurgiu v AS Roma Betting Tips

One of the final matches in Group E sees Roma, who have already sealed first place, travel to Astra who ideally need to pick up all three points to secure the second qualification spot ahead of Austria Vienna. Astra snatched a dramatic last-minute winner against Austria Vienna in the previous round of matches thanks to a Constantin Budescu penalty. That penalty has put the Romanian side in pole position and they know that anything less than a win for Austria Vienna in their match against bottom side Viktoria Plzen, sends Astra through. Whilst they have done well in the Europa…

AS Roma v Porto Betting Tip

As I mentioned in my first leg tip, this is undoubtedly the tie of the round with two big names going head-to-head for a place in the Champions League group stages. Whilst Roma will be pleased to have secured an away goal in Porto, they will be disappointed that they were unable to take a win back to the Stadio Olimpico, especially given the fact that they only conceded through a penalty. Thomas Vermaelen’s sending off 41 minutes into his debut for the club definitely did not help Roma complete their objectives. Following that draw on Wednesday evening, Luciano Spalletti’s…

Porto v AS Roma Betting Tip

In terms of the two names, this clash is undoubtedly the most tantalising out of all the Champions League playoff matches. The second prize of a Europa League group stage place will be seen as abject failure by both sets of fans so the pressure is really on to come out on top in this tie. Porto finished a disappointing third last season meaning they have to come through the qualification process if they want to join their compatriots Benfica and Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League group stage. There has not been much movement at Porto this summer, although…

AC Milan – AS Roma. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction (VIDEO)

AC Milan are in absolute turmoil once again. They’ve got some decent results recently, but there are rumors that Silvio Berlusconi will sell the club to the Chinese. But the focus on the club is really all on: the Coppa Italia final against Juventus, it’s Milan’s one chance to save the season. I think this is filtering through to the players, who know that next weekends game is the priority. AS Roma on the other hand have a chance to get 2nd place and it’s really important for them, because 2nd place means automatic qualification to the group stage of the…

Roma – Napoli. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction (VIDEO)

There is plenty at stake between Roma and Napoli. Roma can cut the gap to Napoli’s all-important second place that gives direct access to the Champions League group stage. They can cut it to just two points. Napoli are coming off a big entertaining win against Bologna, moreover, Gonzalo Higuain is returning, which is also very important. Roma have also been playing quite well, as has their veteran star Totti, who showed some of his old stuff when coming off the bench to score two late goals last time out. I find this game very difficult to call, but if…

The sun is shining over Roma’s face. The things are good for the Giallorossi after the derby. They have huge ambitions to clinch the second place from Napoli. Bologna are a tough side, but they will miss a few players. Giaccherini is suspended, while ex-Romanista Destro is injured. That’s why you should back double chance Roma/Roma at 1.83.

This game will take place in the slightly different atmosphere. It is going to be a reduced fans presence, but it still will be a lot of pressure on both teams. For Lazio this is a chance to save their season, local pride and everything. This stuff does really matter to the players and to the fans. AS Roma on the other hand want to hang on to the Top 3 spot and get to the Champions League. They haven’t lost in Serie A since November and I don’t see any reason for something to be changed here. But you…

It will be the game between Lazio and AS Roma with the lowest attendance ever, due to the parallel strike of both fans. And actually the atmosphere on the stand had always been the thing making the Derby del Cupolone famous everywhere in the world. The game is nevertheless affected by this factor. AS Roma with eight wins and one draw in the last nine games and a confidence boosting them everywhere; Lazio instead can’t even process the word confidence at the moment. For the biancazzurri this is literally the last game counting anything in the season: they are out…

Inter Milan aren’t going to win tonight, because the Nerazzurri are missing Rodrigo Palacio and without him it’s going to be tough for Roberto Mancini. Gialorossi are aiming at the Champions League spot, as are Inter Milan. But AS Roma have the complete squad with Edin Dzeko back in confidence. It’s a kind of play off for Inter Milan and losing this game will mean goodbye – arrivederci – to the Champions League next year. The only thing for Mancini is that he knows that in this situation his team have to be more tight at the back. So it won’t be easy at…

Inter remain the most unpredictable team in Serie A.  Roma have won eight straight in the league. But the fact that nobody seems to be able to figure out the nerazzurri, I guess, is why Roma aren’t shorter.  So I think the play here is Roma -1 goal at 2.87.  When Inter crash, they tend to crash hard.

Udinese have just five points from their last ten games and they’re in danger of getting involved into the relegation race. AS Roma have won seven on the spin in Serie A and, while they lost to Real Madrid in the Champions League, they created plenty of chances. AS Roma are favorites and you expect them to win, but, again, it could take a while to get going. We can go for the half-time draw and AS Roma to win at 4.6 with William Hill.

2/1 Champions League acca. Artur Petrosyan’s prediction

Real Madrid – AS Roma Right, Madrid have scored ten in their last two, but they have also conceded in 6 of their last 7 games. It’s fair to say that there are several things that Zinedine Zidane is not satisfied with and is trying to make changes, which is never easy right in the middle of the season. Replacing Benzema, James Rodriguez and Isco with Mayoral, Lucas Vasquez and Jese in the Madrid derby was a clear indication of this. It’s not the names who are playing for the team, it’s the players. That’s the message he’s trying to…

Real Madrid – AS Roma. Konstantin Genich’s prediction

AS Roma are playing well under Luciano Spaletti, but they are unlikely to beat two goals difference. With that, I liked the way AS Roma played in the first leg. And there will be some chances in attack for them at Santiago Bernabeu. We saw some defensive problems of Real Madrid in their last games. They concede in almost every match. Even if the opponents are unable to create something, Madrid’s players can fall flat by themselves. But Real Madrid have Cristiano Ronaldo, who scores a lot, and Gareth Bale, who is back from injury. All the midfielders are in good…

Real Madrid – AS Roma. Laure James’ prediction

Not only is Real Madrid’s home record of 28 wins in 33 Champions League ties monstrously good, they also have a 2-0 advantage from the first leg. Therefore, you won’t find value in a win for the Santiago Bernabeu giants. Nevertheless, AS Roma have enjoyed a change in domestic fortunes since the Serie A side replaced Rudi Garcia with Luciano Spalletti, and I think they’ll get something to slightly ease the bruising. With Karim Benzema still injured, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale will once again be looked to for Real Madrid goals. William Hill are offering 2.70 for both teams…

Real Madrid – AS Roma. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction (VIDEO)

AS Roma are 0:2 down after the first leg, and Real Madrid crushed Celta Vigo 7:1 last weekend – so you can tell who’s the favourite here. The first leg was a lot closer and a lot longer than the scoreline suggests. I think that AS Roma will be desperate to win and attack Real Madrid. We’ve seen in the past that Real Madrid’s defence is… what it is. I think there is value in backing a draw and both teams to score. We can get that at 5.50 with William Hill. Of course, maybe not too likely, but that’s what…

This promises to be huge in the battle for top 3 and a place in the Champions’ League. De Rossi is out for Roma, Zarate suspended for Fiorentina, but i wouldn’t read too much into either absence. Roma have scored in the last six games and they haven’t failed to score at home since November. Fiorentina have scored in five straight. I think Roma are better and match up quite well individually, so I’m going to back Roma to win and both teams to score at 4.20.

Empoli are comfortable in mid-table but they haven’t actually won in seven games.  AS Roma have won their last five in Serie A and in the Champions League, actually played reasonably well against Real Madrid.  AS Roma, however, are odds on to win, which is a bit short for my looking.

AS Roma – Palermo. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction (VIDEO)

AS Roma have won four games in a row in Serie A and they probably deserve more from there. Then came a home defeat from Real Madrid in Champions League as well. They are in great shape.  Palermo in other hand had five managerial changes this season. Giuseppe Iachini is back on the bench. To me, that says a lot about their president Maurizio Zamparini – none of that good. The relegation zone is getting uncomfortably close to them. I expect them to raise the barricades early and perhaps it might take AS Roma a while to keep going. For that reason, I’d…

Roma – Real Madrid. Editors’ prediction

After the comeback of Luciano Spalletti Roma have been playing good and are now two points away from the Champions League zone. They’ve kept a clean sheet only once after Christmas holidays and they were lucky Berardi missed a penalty in that game. Real Madrid’s defence is no better, and they are also missing Pepe and Marcelo. However, Roma lately have not been a team that plays well against better sides. Let’s not forget 1-6 from Barcelona and 1-7 from Bayern Munich. This makes me think that Real Madrid are going to win in a high-scoring match. Real Madrid and…

AS Roma – Real Madrid. Tancredi Palmeri’s prediction (VIDEO)

This is a moment for AS Roma to stop watching videos of Real Madrid. Luciano Spaletti has been pumping up the expectations for AS Roma maybe even too much. They will play extremely tight, probably with 3-4-2-1 but with five men in defense. They’ll try not to leave any space to their opponent. Real Madrid are missing Gareth Bale who is injured and Marcelo who is not completely fit. So there are some problems in defense for the Royal club. AS Roma will try not to leave any space and not to concede goals. They’ll search for their chances in…

AS Roma – Real Madrid. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction

AS Roma are having a bit of a mini-revival under Spalletti and they have an extra 24 hours to prepare for this game (whereas Real Madrid obviously had to travel). Madrid’s defence looked poor against Bilbao at the weekend and AS Roma’s defence has been haphazard all year but there’s no value in taking the over 2.5. AS Roma and the draw at 1.85 seems better, particularly when you consider that this is Zidane’s first European game as Madrid manager and they’ve won just once on the road since early December.

Luciano Spaletti at AS Roma maybe have restored some confidence which seemed to be the most difficult thing to do for the Giallorossi. And the same thing is still pretty hard to do for Vincenzo Montella at Sampdoria. It won’t be easy anyway and AS Roma are missing Radja Naingollan who is suspended. He is extremely important for the balance of the team. Maybe it will take a while for AS Roma to unblock the game but they have the ability to do it in the last minutes. So we can go for a draw in the first half and AS Roma…

Sassuolo – Roma. Gabriele Marcotti’s prediction

Roma haven’t won on the road since October and their win over Frosinone at the weekend was their first in five games.  Then again, Sassuolo haven’t won at home in five games, going back to November.  Not much of an indication there, then.  To me, Roma’s absentees are more significant: Edin Dzeko is injured and Kostas Manolas suspended. This prompts me to stay away from backing Roma.  Go for over 2.5 goals which is at 2.15 with William Hill, too long a price as I see it.
