Roma vs Feyenoord: Giallorossi to shade tight tussle

Kick-off: 2000, 20/04/2023

Stadium: Olimpico

TV: BT Sport

Roma have work to do after losing 1-0 to Feyenoord in Rotterdam in the Europa League quarter-finals but do have a fine home record.

Jose Mourinho’s men beat RB Salzburg and Real Sociedad at Olimpico in the last two rounds and will be roared on by a sold-out stadium again here.

We’re happy to take 87/100 for the Giallorossi to win the second leg as our first Roma vs Feyenoord prediction.

Giallorossi in good form

Roma had a chance to hit the front just before half-time in Holland when awarded a penalty, but Lorenzo Pellegrini’s spot-kick hit the post.

Mats Wieffer’s long-range volley managed to find the back of the net for Feyenoord and Roger Ibanez had a header cleared off the line via the crossbar at the other end.

Defender Nicola Zalewski commented: “These matches are decided on fine margins and today there were two; the missed penalty and their goal.

“But we are good at bouncing back from these defeats. We know how strong we are; we can go all the way in this competition.”

The Giallorossi prevailed 1-0 when these teams met in Albania in last season’s Europa Conference League final.

They will go into this game in good spirits after Sunday’s 3-0 victory over Udinese at this venue made it three straight clean-sheet wins in Serie A.

Paulo Dybala missed that game after being injured at De Kuip but Tammy Abraham recovered from a knock to score and Pellegrini also netted.

There is plenty of appeal in 37/20 for another home win to nil, but 21/10 for 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 is worth the extra risk from the Roma vs Feyenoord odds.

Euro away form a worry for Slot

Feyenoord coach Arne Slot hailed the influence of a passionate home crowd in the opening encounter but accepts the tables will be turned in Italy.

He said: “The atmosphere in our stadium was great. The fans really supported us a lot.”

However, Slot added: “We experienced the strength of Roma, especially during the last 20 minutes.

“They will be supported in their own stadium by 70,000 people in the second leg.”

Feyenoord are on a 24-match unbeaten run and eight points clear at the top of the Eredivisie table following nine straight wins in that competition.

Six consecutive away wins in domestic fixtures include a 3-2 success versus Ajax in Amsterdam.

Slot’s side have been far from convincing on their travels in Europe, though.

They picked up just one away point during the group stage, drawing at Midtjylland but losing against Lazio and Sturm Graz.

A 1-1 draw versus Shakhtar in the last round was achieved on neutral territory in Poland, so Feyenoord do have a bit to prove here.

Let’s finish off our Roma vs Feyenoord betting tips by taking 12/5 for the hosts to win by any one-goal margin and send the tie into extra-time.
