Roma and CSKA Sofia lock horns in a UEFA Europa League Group A match at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome this Thursday night.

Roma Preview – Hosts to cruise to an easy three points?

Paulo Fonseca’s Roma started their Europa League Group A campaign with a narrow away win last Thursday. I Giallorossi were far from at their best against Young Boys in Bern, but late goals from Bruno Peres and Marash Kumbulla turned the game around to give Roma a priceless 2-1 win.

La Magica have made a steady start to their Serie A season. After five matches, Fonseca’s boys have won two, drawn two and lost one. Since losing to Verona in their league opener in mid-September, Roma are unbeaten in five, winning three and drawing two of six in all competitions. Last weekend, they were involved in a six-goal thriller with AC Milan, with the game in the San Siro ending 3-3.

Our betting prediction:
Roma to win to nil
6/5

(odds taken 1210 GMT, Wednesday 28 October)

 
Roma got the job done in the Wankdorf Arena in Bern in their opening Europa League fixture, but the club from the Italian capital should ease to all three points on home turf this time. They are priced at just 1/4 to get the win.

CSKA Sofia Preview – Heavy defeat for the Bulgarians in Rome?

CSKA Sofia’s season started all the way back in early August, and the Bulgarian outfit have had a decent enough campaign so far. Defeat to CFR Cluj in their opening Europa League fixture last Thursday was only their second reverse of the season.

Worryingly for CSKA, though, they have picked up just one win from their last six league and cup matches. In the Bulgarian First League, the Reds have drawn five and lost one of their previous six.

Sofia are a tough nut to crack on their own patch, but they were beaten in their European home (Vasil Levski National Stadium) by Romanian side Cluj a week ago, conceding two goals in the second period to lose 2-0. This will surely be another tough European night for the Armymen.

 

Roma vs CSKA Sofia Betting Advice

These two clubs last met during the 2009-10 Europa League group stage. Roma were far too strong for Bulgarians in both matches, winning 2-0 at home and 3-0 on the road. Roma have won all four meetings between the clubs without conceding a single goal.

 

Key Facts – Roma vs CSKA Sofia Betting Tip

  • Roma have won the previous four meetings, scoring seven and shipping none
  • The Serie A side came from behind to beat Young Boys 2-1 in their Europa League opener last week
  • Roma have not lost since the opening weekend of the 2020-21 Serie A season

 

Roma should cruise past CSKA at the Stadio Olimpico on Thursday. You can get 7/10 for the home side to be winning at half time and full time, which is certainly worth having a punt on. Also, we like the look of the hosts to win without conceding at 6/5.

Veteran Edin Dzeko has scored three goals in his last three league and cup appearances, including a brace in a recent 5-2 Serie A win over Benevento. Dzeko is priced at 12/5 to score two or more goals in this one.
