Roma vs Qarabag: Giallorossi can progress with emphatic triumph

Roma know they will reach the Champions League knockout rounds if beating Qarabag in Italy and we’re not expecting any slip-ups from the Giallorossi.
Eusebio Di Francesco’s side only laboured to a 2-1 triumph when these teams met in Azerbaijan on Matchday 2, but a more convincing victory is on the cards on this occasion.
The visitors are already out and looked a spent force against Chelsea a fortnight ago, so we like 13/5 for a 4-0, 5-0 or 6-0 home success for our Roma vs Qarabag betting predictions.
A Look At AS Roma’s Betting Odds
Roma were unfortunate to catch Atletico Madrid on a good day when going down 2-0 in the Spanish capital on Matchday 5, leaving them with a bit of work to do here.
However, we’re still keen to keep them on side following two impressive displays versus Chelsea, drawing 3-3 at Stamford Bridge when the better team, before crushing the Blues 3-0 at this venue.
The hosts have also only dropped two points from their last seven Serie A matches to cement a top-four place in that competition, with star striker Edin Dzeko on target in Friday’s 3-1 defeat of Spal.
Last season’s Golden Boot hero in Italy ended an eight-game drought with that goal, having not scored since bagging a brace at Stamford Bridge.
The former Manchester City forward struck against this week’s opponents in Azerbaijan and is an easy pick at 5/2 to break the deadlock in our Roma vs Qarabag betting tips.
A Look At Qarabag’s Betting Odds
Qarabag can look back on their first taste of Champions League group-stage action with great pride, the dual highlights being two draws with Atletico Madrid.
They even threatened to take the lead against Chelsea last time out, with Michel hitting the crossbar after some neat build-up play.
However, Gurban Gurbanov’s side ran out of steam against the Blues after the dismissal of Rashad Sadygov, eventually going down 4-0.
Qarabag paid the price for trying to open up more in that match, suggesting they no longer have the desire to stick with the disciplined approach which served them well on occasions.
That should allow the hosts to make full use of their superior fitness towards the end of each half.
Looking at the Roma vs Qarabag odds, we like 91/100 for a goal to be scored between 30:01 minutes and half-time.
