Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Roma and Real Betis go head to head at Stadio Olimpico in what is expected to be one of the most interesting games of Thursday’s program. The Giallorossi quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Ludogorets, with the team beating Helsinki 3-0 on home soil, and they are now on a quest to overtake Real Betis in top position. Jose Mourinho rested Tammy Abraham in a 2-1 win over Inter, meaning that the former Chelsea striker should start against los Beticos, while all Darboe, Karsdorp, and Wijnaldum remain on the sidelines with injuries.
The La Liga outfit, on the other hand, aim to keep their 100% record in Group C intact, but beating Roma in the “Eternal City” is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the horizon, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. All Camarasa, Juanmi, and Sabaly have been struggling with injuries of late, speaking of the away side.
