Our prediction for this Europa League match:
All eyes will be on Stadio Olimpico when Roma and Borussia M’gladbach face each other in the Group J derby. The Romans kicked off their Europa League campaign with a 4-0 win over Istanbul Basaksehir, with the team sharing the spoils with Roma in their second group game. The Serie A outfit aim to move a little closer to booking their place in the knockout stages, but seeing that key attacker Edin Dzeko is likely to miss the game with injury, home win should not be considered.
Die Fohlen, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Wolfsberger, but they produced a much better performance in a 1-1 draw with Istanbul in the Turkish capital. Seeing that they made a flying start to their Bundesliga campaign, we predict that the Germans are capable of holding Roma to a draw in the “Eternal City”.
Highlighted Player (Alessandro Florenzi):
Alessandro Florenzi is probably the most impressive product of AS Roma youth academy since Francesco Totti and Daniele De Rossi, and the full-back has already developed into an important player for both club and country.
Capable of operating as both right-back and right winger, the talented footballer is probably best remembered from scoring a marvellous goal from half-way line in the Champions League clash against Barcelona, but there is much more to him than an occasional wonder strike. While he usually played as a winger during his early career, Florenzi switched to attacking full-back at both Roma and Italy national team, and that proved a very good move for his career.
While helping the Gialorossi return to old glory days, the right-back left his mark on international stage as well, especially impressing since Antonio Conte took over the reigns in the national team. Despite the fact that he has yet to realise his full potential, Florenzi already boasts an impressive top flight experience and he is predicted a bright future in the game.

Borussia Monchengladbach is a German football club founded in 1900 in West Germany. The club is currently playing in the highest German football division: The Bundesliga.
