Manchester United vs AS Roma: Prediction and Betting Tips
United’s only chance to win silverware this season
It has been a very long knockout stage after three rounds to reach the Semi-Finals, The Red Devils look to be one of the main contenders to win this year’s Europa League. On the road to the semis, United eliminated Real Sociedad, AC Milan, and Granada. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team scored ten goals and conceded just one goal. They had five clean sheets in those six games.
On Sunday, United drew with Leeds after resting some key players like Pogba and Cavani. United have not lost in six matches and have lost just once in 21 matches in all competitions.
Solskjaer will make sure to have a fully fit squad for the Thursday match against AS Roma as it’s the Red Devil’s only chance to win silverware this season.
AS Roma need to improve defensively
Roma are going through a rough spell as they coach Paulo Fonseca’s team have not won in their last four matches in all competitions. In the Europa League this season, Roma has played 12 matches won nine drew two, and lost just once. It is important then for Fonseca to find their European form as they travel to Old Trafford where they were thrashed 7-1 back in 2007 in the Champions League Quarter-Final.
Roma must be at top form going into this match especially defensively. The Romans have conceded eight goals in their last four competitive matches. Although in the Europa League they had five clean sheets they don’t have any in their last four matches. Their matches in the UEL have seen a lot of goals with eight matches finishing with over 2.5 goals.
- Manchester United have won one of their three home matches in the Europa League.
- In just one match of Manchester United in the Europa League over 2.5 goals were scored
- Roma have five clean sheets
- In Roma’s seven matches, both teams scored
Manchester United vs AS Roma Prediction
Both teams want to get their hands on a trophy this season and to do that they know they have to be at their best. United are in a good form but they couldn’t win in three matches at home in the Europa League.
The Red Devils have lost four semi-finals under Solskjaer including last year’s one match last-four game against Sevilla, but they will feel the first trophy since 2017 is within their grasp.
Roma have conceded nine goals in 12 matches in the Europa League and they need to get back to that kind of defensive form.
We think not too many goals will be scored in this match.
