Roma to win

Roma might have only picked up two wins in the last five matches but Jose Mourinho’s men tend to do well in European matches when they are up against the wall. The aggregate deficit combined with home advantage are likely to serve as big motivating factors for Roma. Even though Salzburg do have an advantage on aggregate, this Roma vs Salzburg prediction expects the visitors to be banking heavily on the same. This may be the undoing going by the way Roma have prepared for this encounter.

Total goals under 2.5

Salzburg are likely to be heavily on the aggregate advantage and they may not be pushing in big numbers. This Roma vs Salzburg prediction expects less than 2.5 goals in total.

Both teams to score – no

The Roma vs Salzburg odds come across a lot of value in backing goals at both ends of the pitch, but Roma are likely to be defensive and cautious. The varying changes on the pitch is likely to add to the lack of rhythm in the game. This match might witness one of the teams failing to score.
