AS Roma vs Real Sociedad: prediction for the Europa League match
Roma won four latest home matches, but will the Wolves beat Real Sociedad on March 9? The answer is in our prediction.
Roma got into a relatively easy Europa League group with Betis, Ludogorets and HJK. But a tough schedule didn't let Jose Mourinho grab the top spot, team finished only second. The Wolves had to play against Salzburg in the preliminary round and lost the away match by a 0:1 score. However, a 2:0 victory at Rome was enough for the Italian side to get through.
Roma keep fighting for a Champions League place in Serie A. After 25 matches, Roma stand 4th in the standings, but they are tied on points with 5th-placed Milan. Romans secured a home victory over Juventus (1:0) in the most recent match, taking a 14th win of the season.
Real Sociedad were in the Europa League group with Manchester United, Sheriff and Omonia. With the Red Devils in the mix, Imanol Alguacil's team was not considered a top team of the group, but managed to perform well above expectations. The White-Blues won five games in a row and lost only once to Manchester United (0:1). As a result, team finished 1st in the group with 15 points in the asset.
Real Sociedad are in the middle of a battle for the Champions League spot in La Liga. The White-Blues are currently 4th in La Liga, three points ahead of 5th-placed Betis. Real Sociedad failed to beat Cadiz in the most recent match, extending the winless run to three games.
Ставка Correct score 2:1
Three of nine latest matches of Roma finished by that score
Ставка Roma to score in the second half
This bet played in two latest matches of Roma
Ставка 1st half: total under 1.5 goals
Two latest matches of Roma went by that scenario
Roma are in a fantastic home form - team secured seven victories in eight latest matches at Stadio Olimpico. Wolves should be able to win today, because Real Sociedad looked weak in recent matches.
Our prediction - Roma to win the match
Romans are clear favourites of this match, they are quite successful at home in the current season. Real Sociedad failed to find a victory in three latest matches and even failed to score in two most recent ones, so we are not expecting a success from the Basques in a game against Roma. However, the White-Blues are disciplined on defense, so the Wolves are unlikely to score many goals.
Our second bet is on Roma to win by one goal
