On Thursday night, Roma and Feyenoord clash at the Stadio Olimpico in the Europa League knockout round play-offs second leg. There was nothing between the two teams in the first leg, which produced a 1-1 draw.Roma was back with a bang at the weekend
The Giallorossi returned to form on Sunday, as they recorded a 3-0 win at Frosinone in Serie A.
The game saw the club from the Italian capital continue a prolific scoring run, as they scored at least two goals for the fifth time in six competitive games.
Roma has a slightly mixed recent record in this competition, as although they have lost just one of their last seven games, they have also won just once in their previous four matches.
The Giallorossi’s recent matches in the Europa League followed the same trend as the first leg, as they have been tight affairs with under 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five games.Feyenoord extend their unbeaten run against RKC
The Dutch champions extended their unbeaten run to 11 games in all competitions with a weekend 1-0 home win over RKC Waalwijk.
Just like the first leg of this tie, Feyenoord’s recent games have been tight, low-scoring affairs, with their last seven outings producing under 2.5 goals.
The fact that the Dutch giants have conceded just one goal in their last seven competitive games has been the key to the low-scoring encounters.
Feyenoord finished third in their Champions League group to qualify for the play-offs.
The Dutch team has been difficult to beat in the Europa League in recent seasons, as their only defeat in seven games came against Thursday’s opponents in last season’s competition.What am I backing?
Both teams have quality, and there seems to be little between them. I am expecting a close game, which is why the bet I am backing is the draw.
