Gent – AS Roma : Preview & Prediction
What to say about Gantoise? Second in his Belgian championship behind Club Brugge, first in his group stage ahead of, among others, Saint-Etienne. This is a more than successful season for the Buffalos. Unbeaten at home this season, the Belgian team has 13 wins and 5 draws for 0 defeats in the Pro League and in Europa. A club that confirms, especially after its title of champion in Belgium last year.
A great Italian club in the 2000s, AS Roma has had a little more trouble since 2008/2009. The club, which qualifies almost every year for the European Cup, no longer wins trophies and is no longer considered a very large European club. This season, the club is 6th in Serie A and has finally returned to victory this weekend (4-0 against Lecce) after a draw and 3 successive defeats in the league. An air gap that did not, however, cause them to drop in the rankings, thanks in particular to the bad start to the season for AC Milan and Napoli. Difficult to qualify in the sixteenth of Europa (second in the group behind Istanbul, and only 1 point ahead of the Germans of Mönchengladbach), the Giallorossi hope to go as far as possible in the competition.
Before her defeat in Rome in Europa, La Gantoise remained on a series of 7 games without defeat.
La Gantoise is undefeated at home this season (13 wins and 5 draws), whether in the league or the Europa League.
Before its victories against Gantoise in the first leg and against Lecce in the league this weekend, Roma remained in 5 matches without a TTC win (4 defeats and 1 draw).
In addition to a complicated group stage, Roma were very inconsistent on the outside (1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss).
A complicated match for both teams. Roma have European experience and experience, in addition to the first leg score, as an advantage. But be careful not to underestimate the Belgian team, unbeaten and very solid at home, pushed by its public. La Gantoise or no one!
