Roma and Lyon will play against each other on the upcoming Thursday within the round of 16 of the Europa League. The first match of this clash, which happened on the field of the French team, concluded in a 4:2 win in favor of Les Gones. And now for the Wolves to continue their participation in the Europcup, they need a victory with two goals or more. Therefore, there is nothing surprising about the fact, that bookmakers consider the forthcoming match to be efficient.
After the match against Lyon, Roma had a Serie A game against Palermo, which happened to be away for the Wolves. Spalletti let Dzeko and De Rossi rest in the game, but even without their leaders, the Romans managed to beat the league outsiders with a score of 3:0. Roma have had 13 domestic matches within Serie A, in which they got 12 victories with one defeat.
As for Lyon, they continued their extraordinary performance after Roma. The French team was stronger, than Toulouse in another round of the French championship, defeating the competitor with a score of 4:0. Les Gones’ current shape deserves respect and there is no doubt, that the team from Gaul will score at least once in the forthcoming match against Roma.
Lyon and Roma are two upper-tier teams, which have everything alright in the attack, but with some problems in defense. A bet on a total is more actual in this couple, especially when the future hosts i.e. the Wolves have to score at least twice to advance to the next round of the Europa League. Dzeko had to have a good rest during the week so we can expect some effective game from the Balkan on the upcoming Thursday.
Prediction for the match: over 2.5 goals in the match.
