AS Roma vs Gent Free Betting Tips
It’s not just the Champions League that is making a comeback this week!
This Thursday, the 1/16 finals of the Europa League will begin across Europe. At 9 p.m., AS Rome will host La Gantoise at the Olimpico, a few days after going to bow on the lawn of Atalanta in the championship. On a disturbing series of 5 games without a win in all competitions, can the Roman club take advantage of the return of the C3 to revive? During the group stage, Roma did not shine especially, ahead of Borussia Monchengladbach and the Austrians of Wolfsberger, but finishing 2nd behind the Turkish club Istanbul Basaksehir and winning only 2 games.
If the bookmakers give the Italian club widely favorite in this double confrontation, Gent will be far from an easy opponent to dismiss. Undefeated in their Group I, the Belgian club had even outstripped Wolfsburg, however favorite, as well as AS Saint-Etienne and the Ukrainian club of Oleksandria. If on paper, Roma seem superior to these teams, the poor form of the Italian club as well as the possible turnover and the average group stage may allow “La Gantoise” to believe it!
