CSKA Sofia vs AS Roma: Prediction and Betting Tips
— AS Roma English (@ASRomaEN) December 7, 2021
CSKA Sofia counting on home form as a motivation
Certain of finishing bottom of Group C, CSKA Sofia have managed to collect one point from their five matches in the Conference League. Moreover, they have the joint-worst attacking record in ECL after netting just one goal. Also, CSKA’s recent form is not promising as the Bulgarian side are winless in the last five matches.
In addition, CSKA failed to score in four of their last five matches. Nevertheless, one positive to note is the Bulgarians’ home form. To point out, the Reds have lost just two of their last 15 games on their own patch. Certainly, coach Mladenov will use that to motivate his players against the Italian giants. Nonetheless, their chances of a shock win remain slim as they are the only side in the ECL yet to score at home.
AS Roma must be in full focus in Sofia
With ten points in second spot, four above Zorya, Roma are guaranteed European football in February. However, the Giallorossi prefer to finish first to avoid playing a preliminary 1/16th round matchup. To avoid that scenario, the Italians must win and hope that leaders Bodo/Glimt fail to do so in Zorya, Ukraine. Certainly, Mourinho’s side are favorites to overcome the Bulgarians despite going down to Inter last Saturday in Serie A.
Still, Mourinho needs to be careful here as his team’s shock 6-1 away defeat to Bodo still lingers on. Moreover, Roma were unable to beat Sofia when both teams played in the same group in the Europa League last season. In fact, the Giallorossi lost in Sofia 3-1 a year ago and there could be some lessons to learn from that defeat for Roma. Hence, Mourinho needs to take his opponents seriously and put the pressure on with an early goal.
CSKA Sofia vs AS Roma Prediction
With their victory over Roma last season still fresh in their minds, CSKA will get a lot of confidence and make it as hard as possible for the Italians. Surely, Mladenov will strengthen his defense to avoid the 5-1 thrashing by Romain the first game this season.
On the other hand, Mourinho’s team are having an unstable run of form in their away games. To clarify, Roma have lost and won every other game on the road for the past five trips. Moreover, the Giallorossi have three away wins in their last ten trips.
With that unpredictable Roma form, we prefer to back a double chance outcome. We will combine it with under 3,5 goals since that bet landed in CSKA’s last three and Roma’s last two matches.
