Roma vs Ajax: Predictions

Roma came from behind in the first leg in Amsterdam to take a 2-1 aggregate lead back to Rome. The Amsterdammers took a first-half lead, however, Dusan Tadic’s missed penalty swung the momentum of the game and saw the Serie A outfit equalise through Lorenzo Pellegrini and then steal the win late on through Ibanez.

Paulo Fonseca’s side have progressed with back-to-back 5-1 aggregate victories in their last two Europa League ties, but this seems to be a closer affair for the Italian side. They will take some confidence from their win against Bologna in the league on Sunday which was their first in Serie A since the beginning of March.

Ajax continued their Eredivisie dominance on the weekend with a narrow 1-0 victory over RKC Waalwijk. However, the game will only have rubbed salt in their wounds with Sebastien Haller scoring the only goal of the game. The Ivory Coast international is ineligible to play in the Europa League as a result of an administrative error.

Roma will be disappointed by their position in Serie A this season, but the Europa League has offered them a great alternative to provide some success to what has been a pretty underwhelming season so far for the side from Rome.

Roma vs Ajax: Match Stats

Roma have not lost in any of their five home games in the competition this season. In fact, the Serie A side have only conceded two goals across those games and scoring 14. However, this should be their toughest test yet with Ajax having overturned two of their last three European ties when trailing from the first leg.

In four of their five Europa League home games so far there have been over 2.5 goals. And in three of those five home games, there have been over 3.5 goals with the only exception coming in a 0-0 draw against CFR Cluj in the group stages. With a lot still to play for, Thursday’s clash could offer another high scoring affair.
