Brighton vs Roma Europa League Predictions: Tips and Odds

Brighton and Roma meet in the second leg of their Europa League round of 16 tie on Thursday at 8 pm (UK time).

“All you can do is try and get better,” Pascal Gross responded after Brighton was humbled 4-0 in Rome. Experience counted against the English debutants. Roberto De Zerbi conceded that his team “played 20% less well than we can”; the Seagulls will need that and more to extend their first season in the UEFA competition.

Roma marksman Romelu Lukaku, who spent eight years in the Premier League, knows his side cannot take their foot off the gas. “It’s never over against the English teams,” he warned.

No side has advanced in Europa League history by overturning a four-goal deficit from the first leg of a two-legged knockout tie.
