Roma hosts Wolfsberger AC

In our Europa League predictions we are heading to the Stadio Olimpico because Roma hosts Wolfsberger AC in a game from Group J of Europe’s second best competition. Let’s take a look.

If they want to be sure that they will progress in the tournament, Roma has to win this game. Right now the Italian giants are second in the group with 8 points, but just one point ahead of the third Istanbul Basaksehir. As you can see, they are not in a position to relax and approach this match with no motivation. The only way to keep their fate in their own hands is to beat the Austrian team on Thursday.

For Roma is possible even to win this group. The current leader is Borussia M’gladbach, but they also have 8 points won. If the Germans make a mistake against Istanbul Basaksehir in the other game, this would allow the Italians to climb up on top. But only if they get a positive result at the Olimpico.

In their last game on Friday Roma met Inter Milan in the Serie A and won a point after a 0-0 draw. The manager Paulo Fonseca took some interesting decisions, leaving Leonardo Spinazzola, Edin Dzeko, Alessandro Florenzi and Cengiz Under out of the starting eleven. It’d be curious to see what Fonseca is going to decide about this crucial game on Thursday.

Wolfsberger AC had an impressive start of their Europa League campaign, beating Borussia M’gladbach with four goals margin in their first game. Things went wrong for them in the next four matches when they won just one point.

That’s our Europa League predictions for the match from Group J between Roma and Wolfsberger AC. This is a last step for the Italians in order to reach the knockout phase, while for Wolfsberger AC everything is over now.
