Roma and Villarreal will play against each other on the upcoming Thursday within the second match of the round of 32 of the Europa League. The forthcoming encounter has basically turned into a pure formality, as it is just unreal to recoup the four-goal handicap in Rome. Therefore, one may not doubt, that coaching staffs of both teams will put out to play secondary squads, especially considering, that Roma and the Yellow Submarine have important matches in their domestic championships.
Roma have been scoring a lot recently. Four goals to Fiorentina, the same number to Villarreal and Torino, two goals against Crotone – these are the latest achievements of the Wolves on the football fields of Italy and Spain. Spalletti has created a very strong team, which should be playing in the Champions League playoffs, according to its potential. The Romans have a very difficult match against Inter ahead, whereas the match will be away.
Villarreal will throw all their forces on the championship of Spain after the defeat from Roma. The Yellow Submarine are currently on the sixth position in the Spanish championship. The team have had eleven away games within Primera, in which it got three victories with six draws and two defeats. Nine goals were scored and six conceded.
Both Roma and Villarreal will enter Stadio Olimpico field in reserve squads and in this situation total under is probable as top forwards will be left on a bench. Besides, Villarreal have extremely low away results, therefore, one should not expect a great number of scored goals.
Prediction for the match: under 3.5 goals in the match.
