Roma have their noses in front

Roma were a little fortunate to escape Amsterdam with a 2-1 first-leg lead last week , but with a couple of away goals in the bank, the Italian outfit are favourites to progress to the Europa League semi-finals on Thursday.

The Giallorossi were already goal down at the Johan Cruijff ArenA before the hosts won and subsequently missed a penalty in the second half, and the tie swung in Roma’s favour just four minutes later when Lorenzo Pellegrini equalized thanks to a goalkeeping howler.

Ajax pressed hard to restore their advantage, though the Dutch giants were hit with another sucker punch in the 87th minute when Ibanez smashed home a late winner from a corner kick.

Ajax know the job at hand

Ajax created enough chances to win the first-leg twice over, and the Eredivisie leaders will need to show a more clinical edge to get themselves back into the tie on Thursday.

Erik ten Hag’s team only know one way to play, and an attack-minded Ajax are expected to push for goals from the first whistle in Rome.

Goals markets offer an opportunity

The Dutch side rarely leave viewers bored, and over 2.5 goals have been scored in five of their last six Europa League fixtures. Both teams got in on the act in a further four of those contests, and bettors are advised to back goals again in Thursday’s second-leg.
