AS Roma – Barcelona : Preview & Prediction
Nothing is impossible in football but there are some statistics that do not lie. By dominating AS Roma 4-1 in front of their home crowd, Barça opened the doors of the semi-finals of the Champions League. Author of a hat-trick (3-1) against Leganes this weekend, Messi will probably – as always – the man who will permanently annihilate the last hopes of the Wolf. A little too tender defensively to withstand the firepower of the Blaugranas, Roma will approach this meeting with the goal of closing a beautiful European campaign on a positive note. Dangerous offensively, Dzeko and others know that they have the means to hurt the Umtiti – Piqué hinge. We hope for a totally unrestrained meeting, rich in goals!
Both teams found the net one way (4-1).
The bet “both teams score” has been validated during three of the last four trips of Barça.
Barcelona has conceded at least one goal in 7 of its last 11 trips. And we have no doubt that Messi & co will make the Italian nets tremble at least once.
We can expect an offensive festival on Tuesday in a Stadio Olimpico where the AS Roma, almost eliminated, will be especially interested in offering a beautiful evening to his tifosi. If Barça are too strong offensively to remain silent for 90 minutes, we can also count on Dzeko and his partners to bend at least once the Spanish defense, as in the first leg (4-1). The bet “both teams score” will pass very serenely.
